E-flite L-13 Blanik 4.2m ARF
This looks nice
E-fliteŽ is proud to add the 1/4-scale L-13 Blanik 4.2m to its family of sailplanes. This 1/4-scale replica of this internationally recognized sailplane comes with plenty of scale details including a hinged canopy and an authentic Red Bull trim scheme from the world-famous Flying Bulls. In addition, the foam wings not only provide strength, but also provide a more accurate representation of the full-scale airfoil. The fiberglass construction provides strength and rigidity to the fuselage, while features such as flaps and a spacious cockpit area for radio equipment make this plane easy to operate and maintain, and optional electric spoilers can be added. This great flying plane is ideal for sailplane and aerotow pilots as well as slope soarers.

Nice! The inclusion of flaps is a major plus in my book!
Suddenly the Blanik is the new cool kid on the block, what with Sebart also bringing one out ..

That looks fantastic! Though a bit much for me, LOL. Wouldn't mind seeing Parkzone release a new Radian sized plane, but scale. And with a power system so I don't have to do a tow or bungee launch.

Sorry for the pedantry, but which ones? It makes a difference - some are better suited to thermalling, some better suited to aerobatics. I'd be interested to know which way you guys went with this one.

Thanks for the vid Big Nuts. Not too bad at all. Always liked the looks of the Blanik, wasn't too crazy about the Red Bull decals though, now it's beginning to grow on me. Big question is how much?
