I like this glider very much! It seems to, and I hope I am right about this, it has much better flight-characteristics than the EPP-wings with similar wing-plan.

What I also like, is the fact that there is no EPP that has to be covered in tape... as the tape easily comes loose after some time. For example, if one has it lying around in a hot car. This is not the case with balsa covering (Oracover and alike) which is very durable.

Perhaps... this is one of my future project (have still some lying around :-) )

There is not an ARC-version?

According to what I've seen on the Facebook, this pup goes together VERY smooth and quick! Not to mention the WOWser root joining!

oops, I have 2 on their way!

Erm .. one Can cover a foamie with the film covering of preference..even Oracover... eliminating your concerns.
Also a Big real life advantage over a balsa build when an epp wing...Gawd forbid.. hits the rocks
Hot wiring a wing is Very simple and one can make multiple wings in an afternoon .. against future need

Yes - everything is possible!

That should not be the topic. The BATWING is for people who want to build a model out of a kit.

Without CNC hotwire, or aerodynamics knowledge.

BATWING is a complete kit with all accessories - except RC components!

And for a wood Nurflügel very fast, stable and agile

regards Christian

PS: since 1.3 we can ship worldwide!
