Take a break from the real world and hang loose on the slope with Shaka – a portable 1-meter slope glider. It is a flying wing that is designed for endless joy on a windy day.
Shaka features a classic balsa/plywood construction, reinforced with carbon fiber tube spars and a leading edge.
This is an RC slope glider KIT that has to be assembled and covered, not a built-up model.
However, it is extremely easy to build in approx. 4-7 hours and will bring you a lot of fun on a windy day.
A Potrable RC Slope Glider KIT
Shaka slope glider is collapsible for transportation and storage. Simply unscrew 2 bolts and take the fuselage and both wings apart. It’s as easy as that.
The fuselage has a hatch for easy access to the interior and electronics. 2 servos, there is a room for almost any ~10g servo, are glued into the dedicated places in the wing and drive 2 elevons.
The KIT comes with a complete accessory set that includes two M4 nylon wing mounting bolts and a pair of M4 nuts to be glued into the fuselage during assembly, control horns, ball linkages, and servo horn clevises for pushrods, etc.
Note: a covering film is not included in the KIT.
The assembly usually takes approx 4-7 hours.
