Those of you who fly DLG's may be intrigued by this plane. In short what we have here is a 500 to 600 gram, 2 meter electric with separate flaps and ailerons.
The construction is very similar to, but slightly more robust than a DLG. The matt surface finish on the parts is quite good and to be honest we're not sure how they do it.
The Q12x's wing profiles are derived from the same AG foil sections that Mark Drela designed and used for his Supra. The AG foils provide exceptional performance in thermals as well as sink. The wing features a slight polyhedral as well as independent ailerons and flaps allowing full wing, camber, reflex, crow etc.
