I've been looking at it at your website and it really looks nice!!!!
I have a couple of questions though...
The S4083 is it at 8%?
And the other one is are there any type of pushrods included in the kit??? They don't seem to be in any of the pictures and if I order a kit I'd like to know what other accesories do I need to complete the build.

Thanks for the info
So basically apart from the kit all I need to get in the air is the film cover and radio?
Horns and other hardware is also included
(sorry, I haven't bought a kit in a long time)

I'm totally new to this category of gliders, I have a friend in Argentina that convinced me to give them a try, he build his from scratch.
Anyway thanks for the quick reply, I'll be ordering one in the near future as soon as I see some clearance on my work bench...

Well I finally got my hands on the kit.
It got to my wife in London fairly quick, then she brought it to the US where we had some holidays together and now I'm finally home in Costa Rica again.
On first impressions, it comes all neatly packed and survived the trip half around the world unscated.
I haven't had the guts to untape the bits yet since I'm not quit ready to start the bulding yet an it has lots of tiny pieces that I don't want to lose.
The only thing I notice to critique is that the fuse boom has quite a bit of bubbles on it, they don't seem to be a problem, just a cosmetic issue for such a nice design.

I guess this is not intended as a beginner's kit and therefore the lack of any instructions as to how to proceed.
To be honest this is going to be the first kit I build of this type, I've done a lot of scratch building pure wood or all composites/foam but not many wood/composite (not of this small size anyway so I'm not sure what type of glue to use to keep the weight down.

Do you know if there are any building threads going about it?

Hello Fernando,

we are glad to hear you are satisfied with what you got in the package.
We are still working on our illustrated instructions which should soon be done.
We already made all the pictures we need to make it but we still have to add description to every one of them. Additionally when we do finish it we will make a build log and special topic in our forums.

Thanks for the reply!!!!
I guess I'll leave it in the shelf for now and finish the other projects while I give you time to put the instructions together.
I don't want to screw it up so I rather wait (hopefully not for too long...)
Thanks again,

Any updates on the instructions????
I need to start the build and some guidance would be nice (no matter how little) there are some CF bits that I don't even know what they are for (like the cloth in the plastic bag and some strips (that they are not the TE or the cap strips) they about 1/8 wide.
If you can just give some hints on how to start the wings I'll get to it.

Hello Fernando,

we haven't forgotten about the manual but we are really getting some hard time finding time to complete the manual, everything is set and the steps are completed, we only need to get it into nice pdf. manual.
We will send you pictures and steps in a day or two so you can start building the wings.
We are very sorry for waiting so long and thank you for your understanding.

Best regards
