The original much-loved Keil Kraft Minimoa has been completely redesigned for 2-channel RC and to bring it up to the standards of precision laser cutting. This is a 50" glider for 2-channel RC, but could be built for 'free flight' if so desired. Designed by Chris Long, it is now an entirely original kit, separate from the KK Reproductions range.
Designed for RC - requires 2 x 4-5g micro servos, 400mAh Nimh (or similar lipo and BEC equivalent) flight battery and small receiver.- THESE ITEMS NOT INCLUDED
New wing box with superior strength
Strengthened wheel axle box
New scale canopy
This kit is a laser-cut replica of the 1930s Göppingen Gö 3 Minimoa sailplane.
Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin.
The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.
Designed for 2 channel micro RC, but can built for 'Free flight'.
This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.
Balsa wood and plywood sheets with precise laser cut parts
Vacuum-formed canopy and acetate for glazing
Piano wire for undercarriage and tow hook
Mylar hinges and Carbon Fibre control rods
Rubber tyre for wheel
Tissue to cover the model
Full size printed plan with instructions
Additional items are required to complete kit as pictured: Minimum 2 channel radio with 2 x 4/5 gram servos, receiver battery (square 4.8v), on/off switch, adhesive and general modelling tools
