Standard for most companies, it's not a 'discount'. One is retail ($1549), the other is Minimum Advertised Price ($999).

E-flite because a pure sailplane goes along well with the quiet flying experiece, and the only power onboard is electric. Hangar 9 is about power system choice including both electric and IC. Since this has no motor it doesn't really fit with Hangar 9. Contrary to the way some think, we want to get away from thinking that E-flite = small and Hangar 9 = big. EFL has always been "Advancing Electric Flight" in every aspect of advancement.
Have to come out with an "S-Flite" line for Silent

A Ventus or ASK in that size/price range with the E-Flite quality and Horizon support would be a VERY compelling model. Just sayin

Sheeted, well-reinforced.
My Dealer says, that the Wings are Abachi sheeted but

Can you tell me more about the wing profile ?

Is the fuselage fiberglass only, or do you have
carbon fiber reinforced ?
Its important for me, i want to fly the Blanik on hard
slope conditions ( no DS )

So there will be 2 Versions? 1 for Thermal fly and one for Acro?
Would be nice if the Thermal version would also be stable to fly faster with and is also good in thermal gliding.

Wings are Balsa Skinned with Carbon capped spars. Wing is crazy strong, perfect for slope flying.
Airfoil is modified HQ. Good thermal and aerobatic performance.
