Vincent, please share some photos of your servo installation, when done. I know it is quite different from what we make.

Pierre Meunier made a nice review of AURI. Hope it will be useful for some of you, who was wondering how it flies and how quality is.

The glider, Pierre has, is light version with 36 g fiber on wing. He received it preassembled from the factory. All pushrods, strings, springs installed. Tails and peg are glued.

Enjoy

Wow this is really impressive! I have an old Taboo and want to buy a nice entry glider to see how I take to it. I'm a bit intimidated by the build process but I can go slow and will probably be okay. It looks like it's out of stock on the UK site. I really like and want the orange but if anyone has one here in the states I'll probably take any color.

Thanks!!!!

I see in some of the pictures of the Auri the Stab is below the boom and other pictures show it above the Boom. What are the advantages/disadvantages of the two positions?

Some Auris are already on the way to US. Contact Hobby Club for it.

I see very small difference (or just no difference at all) between tom and bottom mounted stabs.
When I use steel pushrods, i go with stab on top.
When I try to make the lightest one and use springs and strings for tails i mount stab underneath the tailboom.

No idea, I'm trying to finish up for the weekend. I will not fail to keep you informed.
To get an idea of ​​the final weight, see the pictures.

So the horizontal stab has a symmetrical airfoil?

Some build pics and thoughts


I've been flying my Auri for about a month now and it becoming on of my faves! It seems to have good penetration and can slow down in lift and thermal very well. The finish and quality is AMAZING... It came out to 222 grm at 67mm. I did a floating pushrod and seem to be working perfect, no flutter or slop.
I need to get a head mount so I can get some video

Aloha, Ian
