Full Description

This model is a good-looking sport parasol wing design from Lindsay Todd in the form of a 56.5” (1435mm) wingspan sport scale design suitable for a .52 cu.in. four-stroke or equivalent electric power.

The wings are made in three parts, with a connecting tube spar, but could easily be adapted to a single piece if so wished. Flight characteristics are benign, but Kestrel is capable of all the basic aerobatics and simply looks pretty in the sky with its scale-like proportions and is just a little bit different.

This is a fun model as it is a sport design that looks like a real aeroplane but with none of the hassles so often associated with scale models. However the design lends itself to further details and you could really go to town, and it would make a great scale practice model or simple weekend sports hack.

The model is suitable for the average club-level pilot with some building experience.

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.
