Search on a plane called "Yoda"

It is a very well designed/engineered open-bay flying wing comming out of Germany. Many times I have drooled over one of these. The one shown here has a motor, instead of a tow hook, just to make launching easier. But a tow hook version is an option, just more difficult to launch.

Does anyone know of the Boomer or the Alula's performance in flat field thermaling?

Torcman is the name of the motor used. Plane is "Taborca"...:

I don't know much about those two, but do know a lot about the Red Herring.

Red Herring is a good thermalling glider, but of course you won't see the performance that you would out of say an XP or a Taboo.

I suspect, that with Boomer, Herring, etc. that you will get about 40 seconds of "no thermal" flight from a hand launch.

I have thermalled my Herrings quite a bit. I don't fly them as much as I used to, but I used to consider a 60 second flight a good flight and had many 2-3 minute flights. My longest Herring thermal flight was a bit over 10 minutes but have had probably a dozen 5 minute + flights.

Zagi THL will thermal, but be careful with high starts. If you over pull the high start, it will induce flutter and possibly break the center foam... You may not see the damage, but each high start there after will just make it worse.... I had some 200 flights out of mine before i had to give it up to the trash... Its really a great way to launch on a high start and get introduced cheaply to soaring

Hand lauanch wing


Go to the "dream-flight.com" website and check out the Alula.
It is a DLG which will also fly in very light slope lift. Discus launches to 50-60 ft are possible and the AUW is 4-6 oz's. It's also pretty aerobatic if you're so inclined.

Wow!! That is one beautiful built-up wing. Is it a kit? Could you give us some specifications like wingspan etc.?

Any one of the nice birds from B2 Streamlines would be excellent. It'd be an easy build too because there are no little pieces to fiddle around with. I've personally found that the bigger the bird the easier it is to build in my opinion (generally, I'm yet to build a truly complex model). Sometimes it just takes more time. Very few people have them, they're easy to see (big), fly unexpectedly well, ... reading your first post I think you'd absolutely love one of those.

Hi Jim

there is not a lot to say.

Wingspan is 200cm.

Best is, if you download the plan http://www.jensn.de/downloads/Medea.zip

Included are some PDF's, DXF and DWG files.

I have actually a Medea on my building board . Hope to get it finished till spring. A BOt is also waiting for the finishing stuff
