Holy 90's slope racer Batman. This has to be one of the last Nova's in kit form on earth. Worth more than the asking price.

Nova - awesome MOM racer!


I loved my Nova and sorta regret selling it. Back in the day this airplane was unstoppable in the right conditions when ballasted to 11 lbs. So much fun. Paul may remember back in '92 when we had the big race at Torrey Pines. Nova left the smaller models for dead.

Which airfoil does it have?


I recall the Nova came stock with the 7003 section but mine had the SD2055 airfoil which was a little lower drag. Does this one say which it is?

Also remember when we were practicing at Torrey one good day, and your Nova t-boned my heavy Contender at the North turn. Guess which plane lost the battle? Big lift and compression sites like Davenport were the Nova's hunting grounds, inland cycling sites, not so much!

I do recall that, Paul - The nova was waxing the contender so you turned inside me and after I popped the turn, I popped your contender . I believe it ended up in five pieces, LOL However, the lack of airspeed caused the Nova to go down as well and I had to get that dude to retrieve it off of the cliff for me for a fee. Quick repair and I was ready to race at Davenport the next weekend. Tim Neja bought mine and I think he still has it.
