Fournier RF-4D

hi Guys

the new aeronaut kit FOURNIER RF-4D has been released recently. Check the website for more information: aero-naut website

This is some information from the website:

Our model is designed to 1:4 scale, as this size makes it possible to accommodate both a retractable undercarriage and airbrakes. It is designed primarily for our range of four-stroke motors: the single-cylinder Saito FA-56, 65, 72, 80 and 91, and the FA 90 TS and FA 100 T opposed twins. For any single-cylinder motor we recommend our vibration-damping motor mount, Order No. 7153/11. Alternatively an electric power system can also be installed, e.g. our actro 24-5 with a CAM 14 x 8” or 14 x 9” propeller and 16 cells. In flying terms our RF - 4D is a connoisseur’s delight. The wing features both aerodynamic and geometric washout, and in conjunction with an extremely low wing loading this endows the model with excellent, beautifully balanced flying characteristics. It deserves to be flown in true “scale” style, as this looks wonderful and helps to avoid heart trouble! The Fournier is a picture of elegance in the air, especially at low altitude, and can be flown over a broad speed range from leisurely to quite fast.
