Description

Take a break from the real world and hang loose with Shaka – a portable 1-meter slope glider. It is a flying wing, that is designed for endless joy on a windy day or on a flat field.

Shaka RC Slope Glider Kit features a classic balsa/plywood construction, reinforced with carbon fiber spars and a leading edge. The updated kit can be built as both electric-powered and pure glider with no major difference in the AUW.

It is reasonably easy to build in approx. 6-10 hours.

The assembly guide is available online.

A Potrable RC Slope Glider

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 onto the dedicated plates in the wing and drive 2 elevons.

In addition, you can easily install any 14XX or 15XX series drone motors to make your Shaka powered for flat-field fun or emergency rescues on the slope. The fuse is designed to fit both 30mm and 25mm spinners for your convenience.

This Slope Glider Kit comes with a complete accessory set that includes M4 plastic 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, but you can add it to your order

    Haven’t had a chance to fly yet as it’s winter here, but my electric version arrived fully assembled and built well. This is a good value if you need something to fly that’s under 250G.

    • Evgen

      Thanks for the kind words, Lorne!

      I bet you will enjoy flying it!

    I received the Shaka V2 Glider in California. The packaging was perfect and the kit content and printed instructions are excellent.

    My ARF Shaka came to Alaska in perfect condition. It is beautifully made and covered with film of the colors I chose. Communication with Evgen was a pleasure and he was quick to respond and accommodated all of my requests.
    The craftsmanship was flawless and the covering perfectly applied.
    I have many high end gliders and several flying wings. The performance pf the Shaka is as good or better than any of them. It is a great flyer!
    I am super happy with this purchase as I feel the quality of the product is first rate the price was reasonable. Evgen is awesome and the customer service was excellent. I highly recommend this company and this product.

    Kit came in a timely fashion, well packed and no damage. Instructions easy to follow and builds quickly. Very light waiting on film for covering going with laminate 20 micron. Plan for it to be a beach plane. The great Lakes in Ontario Canada have a very consistent wind which makes for great soaring. Not sure how I will ballast the plane at present, some fun for the future.

      Thanks, James!

      At least from the second take we got it right 😉

    Hi All, I have ordered 2 kits. I’ve built one and flown it…Mine has about 3 hours of flying time now with maybe 8 landings over a 2 day period. Kit was easy to build…it took more time than 7 hours of build time as the plan states…however I put extra effort in….mine is 214 grams ready to fly. The balsa selection for the kit is superb….both kits were weighed…with a variation of 4 grams.!!! How good is that… I have fibre glassed the fuse the fin and the elevons. Fuse and fin are painted yellow enamel paint..the elevon are plastic film covered. I am running HV servos…and a 2 cell 450mah battery direct to receiver. I lengthen the nose by 15mm to a point..after all the web site is flight point..!!! LOL. The model is fast…roll rate is fast….lands slow if you want too. It is very manoeuvrable and easy to fly..on low rates its a docile model…on high rates if just super fun. My flight was in 18 knots..which is alot for a 214 gram model..and it handles it easily if you have experience. check out this… take a look at my second flight..

    This model is alot of fun and Im sure it will also be fun in light conditions due to its forgiving nature…this is a “spitfire” not a “DC3” ..regards Arthur…PS…I gave my second kit to Allen so we can dogfight..or do formation flying in the future..he filmed the video..my advice is just get one..great value…very good price…good clever design..you wont regret it.

      Thanks, Arthur!

      I was excited following your build and seeing another bird in flight is hilarious!

      Enjoy flying your Shaka and keep sharing your pictures, they are beautiful! Almost feel like I’m there with you!

    A very enjoyable build!! Took her for her first proper flight today, slope soaring on one of Holland’s many dikes. Extremely fun to fly. Top marks!!

    • Evgen

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for your feedback! Glad that you like it!

      Enjoy!

    Hasn’t been built yet, just arrived. Beautifully cut kit, looking forward to construction soon. Also enjoyed the many Ukrainian stamps on the box, which survived the long trip well due to its shape. Looking forward to another project from you in the future!

    • Evgen

      Hi Douglas, thanks for your kind words. There are a few interesting projects in development, so stay tuned and enjoy the build!

      Best,
      Evgen

    Hi Evgen,
    Just letting you know that all went well with the kits, and they truly are a great flyer, not needing much lift to fly, I’m absolutely loving it, the shaka lives in the car as I often find a place to fly in my travels, short throws and expo are needed, as she’s very responsive, great model mate, nice work…

    • Evgen

      Hi Andy,

      Thanks for writing this up! Glad you liked the KIT and making such great use of it, enjoy!

      Best,
      Evgen

    Instructions are very clear, plane flies great and on top of that great contact with Evgen in case you have any questions.
    I highly recommend it !

      Hope you are having a great time flying with your mates. Enjoy!
