It's at 12 ounces so I am sure it's much smaller than a wasabi. But it looks like it will be fun aero ship!

You can also kind of tell it's small by the distance between leading edge and nose . Longer nose for longer boom but I have a feeling it's going to be smaller than libelle and bigger than weasel.

Does it look like foam or fiberglass to go along with that Carbon Fiber Canopy???

Its Dreamflight, you can bet it's foam, sure looks like a ribbon spar on top of wing. carbon canopy is probly a sticker.
I haven't seen one but I was thinking about getting some of the my servos so might have to see if I can pick them up at the weasel cave, he was very good at not answering questions with details, lol, I knew it had a tail and was about same wingspan as libelle, that's all I could get out of him at weaselfest.

Visited Michael two weeks ago and did see it fly in really light wind conditions around 5 or less. Not the ideal condition for an aerobatic glider. But it flew and cruised around nicely.

Construction is like all the other new DF foamies. Really smooth foam finish and huge control surfaces. Gotta love the carbon canopy. I'll need two of these.

Looks like a perfect addition to the dream flight collection and I will definitely add it to my fleet.

Of all the slope soarers I own the weasel is still the best bang for buck when it comes to fun and convenience.

Does anyone know the wingspan?
