A NEWLY REDESIGNED CLASSIC

Removable wings
Former realignment

YOUR KIT

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.
