Coming July 2021

The BOO Micro Slope Glider from Vogel Fly is just too cool not to talk about. I always enjoy brining a plane with me on a vacation, but it can be a big pain to do so. The BOO is tiny and easy to pack up, but it looks like it will be a ton of fun to fly too. It's got an 800mm wingspan and weighs in under 200g.

It's a kit so you'll need to have some building skills and supplies, but it doesn't look difficult at all and they provide you with a jig for setting the V-Tail up. Just add 4 servos, a receiver and battery and you are all set to have some fun on just about any size slope you can find. Check out the video below and let me know what you think of the BOO.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 800 mm
  • Wing Area: 7.8 dm2
  • Weight: approx. 150 - 200 g
  • Wing Loading: from 19 g / dm2

Nice little plane. Love the latticework wing ribs.
I wasn't understanding the odd placement of the antenna wires but now see that's some sort of watermark on the photo

Cute glider. I love the wing saddle. And the wings look very stiff.

Well done!

In order to make Americans suffer, I am fairly certain the Germans take great joy in making their web sites German language only.

BOO Sloper


There is a mention of EWD and that is Einstellwinkeldifferenz which is decalage.

Nice looking little bird (vogel), there are no slopes near me so I do wonder if I could use a small high start on it.

Your choice ... you can build as one or two piece wing.

Looks like it is available sometime in July...no posted price thus far though.

At the moment the production molds for the fuselage are being created and the laser sets are being prepared.

The take-off weight is approx. 150 grams

The shipping costs worldwide are 7.50 euros.

Saw the BOO and it was love at first sight but the link is not working for me.
Is anyone planning on doing a building thread once the kits are available?
