That Italian flair for design shines through! As good as anything put out by Bertone, Pininfarina et al!

Ciao Woodstock1,
thanks for your positive comment!!
Our challenge was to design an innovative aerobatic glider and we spent a lot of time to define the final version of our GRAECALIS.
I think we “got the goal”!!
We are very glad for all the positive comments we received.
Obviously there are also some people who had a negative impression about Graecalis, but they are not a lot!!!
thanks and ciao

Thank you all for your interest in our model, as requested by many users of the Forum, I enclose a photo of the craft kits. The canopy and cockpit is missing in this picture, but is included in the kit.

I'm interested in the inverted flight behaviour of the airfoil. Is there a link to view the airfoil used?

Are there any videos yet showing the Greacalis in inverted flight?

The profile was designed by Claudio Becchetti, Annex I put the drawing.

In the inverted flight, Bex1809 (profile) , is fantastic ..... requires very little control beat

if you want more information for the profile bex1809 .... this is the contact of Claudio Becchetti: cosmus@libero.it
