The G-Blink could be just the thing to take your mind off of the poor conditions and let you have some fun building a new plane. This is a wooden delta shaped RC glider model that has a wingspan of 600mm. It uses laser cut parts that interlock for a quick easy build. It's designed to fit two 7.5 or 9g servos.

Yep, the regular Blink has a motor mount on the front for a 2205 - 2208, 2400-2700kv motor. I just received my kit in the mail yesterday! Looking forward to getting started, but I'll have to build a workbench first haha.

Just ordered the G-Blink this afternoon. Cool looking plane, couldn't resist! I plan on using clear monokote to show off that cool structure.

I paid about the same in postage as the price of the kit. $90 USD or so total.

Box was a little squished as you would expect for such a journey, but it was well-packed and the wood is is great shape. The balsa sheets are actually pretty small and it's mostly lite-ply. I didn't realize at first, but all the ribs/spars are laser cut lite-ply, not balsa. The firewall, hatch, and control horns are a more dense (birch?) ply. There was zero damage to any of the wood in the kit, and I think it's going to be a stout airframe. I'll put together a build thread in the next week or two and link it here, detailing my experience.

There’s a nice article on the Blink in the December/January issue of R/C Model Aeroplane Magazine. This is a English publication available in the U.S. and Canada.

I like the Blink XL but they're sold out.

What's not to like...including a sane price.
