What do you think of it? There is also a 48" version.

HORRIBLE !!!!!!!

An Avro Vulcan in blue and red is borderline heresy !!

And it doesn't even look like an Avro Vulcan.

Please get them to give it another name - ANY name - and I'll calm down !!

Other than complaining about the name does anyone know anything? About Delta's in general? Thanks.

The Vulcan was my 2nd slope ship after a Zagi. Much fun. I built it as a twin fin design, because I wanted to put a rocket pod on top eventually... but that's another story.

It is a lot of fun on the slope. Very precise and relatively fast, and almost as rugged as a Zagi. The spars tend to break near the nose if you are really mean to the ship like I was, but it doesn't affect its flight performance. Looks cool, too, especially with twin fins!

It's also lots of fun as a flatland bungie ship. Put a hook on it and zing it up a couple hundred feet in your local park. It comes off the rubber at incredible speeds.
