Full Description

An electric version of the superb competition aerobatic model designed by Mike Delacole with a 48″ wingspan.

This classic sport aerobatic design by Mike Delacole has been updated for electric power and creates the perfect blend of modern hardware and classic sports design.

A bit from the designer: Much has changed in the world since the original Chilli Breeze design (available from Sarik Hobbies: https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/chilli-breeze-48/) was published way back in 1994. In our aero modelling world, one of the biggest changes has undoubtedly been the demise of the noble glow motor and the emergence of electric power. The original Chilli Breeze was designed for glow motors in the .25 -.36 cu in range (the OS .32SF in particular) and had to able to accept a standard set of radio gear of that era. They flew well and handled the average windy conditions without a problem. When I (Designer Mike Delacole) was first thinking about an electric version he was pleasantly surprised to find that there was still an interest in the Chilli Breeze/Wind designs. The prototype for the new EP version was built using the original overall dimensions and construction methods (from the original free plan) and used medium-density balsa sheet throughout – except for some harder wood and ply for spars etc. A 36”x4”x1/16” a sheet of medium-density balsa weighs around 20gm and all other thicknesses are directly proportional to that figure. The completed wooden structure
weighed in at around 510g/18oz (which was about the same as the 1994 original) so there is really no point in trying to save weight.

Please note that all plans are printed to order and as such we are unable to accept returns.

What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack?

A CNC or Laser Cut Wood Pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply & lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack?

Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated Laser Cut Wood Pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modeling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.

What’s in a Short Kit?

A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
