Full Description

After the great success of Ton Van Munsteren’s Red Eagle (published in RCM&E a while back), he was looking for a glider that would go up on a bungee and have good thermal-hunting performance. With the rising popularity of simple, lightweight RES (Rudder, Elevator & Spoiler) gliders, and bolstered by a discussion on a Dutch forum about starting a competition with them, such a design was an attractive proposition.

A RES model would be perfect to enjoy the lift often found on those long, wispy-breeze summer evenings. There’s certainly nothing complicated with the build – all balsa with carbon tube wing spars – it won’t take long to put together.
