DAW KA6 Need your thoughts


As some of you know, I am producing the DAW KA-6 EPP sailplane kits under license from Dave Sanders. This kit is a 3 meter bird with a solid reputation as a great aero tow trainer and a supurb slope model.

Several folks have suggested that I also offer a scaled down version of this kit. A 2 meter would certainly be an obvious next size, however do you think it would make sense to offer it in a 90" - 100" version?

Your ideas would be appreciated.

I think it would be popular. There aren't too many foamie versions of scale sailplanes, and 2m is a great size. 90-100" is good too, of course. I dunno, I guess bigger is better, no? Then again smaller can be really handy. But something less than 3m would be cool, I'm sure!

(Personally I'd just get the 3m of course!)

I would like 2M, one piece wing. 90"-100" would need
a 2 piece for many smaller cars. There may also be some
interest in a 60"?

I like the KA-6 shoulder wing vs the I-26 mid wing.

DAW KA6 Need your thoughts


Just finished my DAW TG-3 over the weekend which has been hanging around the house for a while. I would be interested in a 2 meter rather than larger.

I would think the 2M is a good companion to the 3M. Once you get to the 90-100" size range you are only a little bit away from the 3M (118") size and I would think most would just opt for the 3M rather than a 100" size. I know I would
