The Petrel excels in light wind conditions, being able to turn tightly in the slightest patch of lift and is equally happy when the wind blows. The combination of up-going ailerons and spoilers is very effective, so landing in tight spaces is quite possible. Once you get to know your Petrel we’re sure you’ll find that it’ll be your go-to model when it’s time to go soaring.

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 and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheet.
