Details

ElfThe Elf is another great model from Blejzyk. A robust design with a quick 60" wing. Like most of the Blejzyk line, the Elf features an efficient airfoil that guarantees excellent flight character in both light and heavier wind conditions.

All Blejzyk kits feature beautifully sheeted and fully shaped and sanded wings and tails. Beneath the wood sheeting you will find a sandwich of foam cores and a layer of fiberglass for added strength in key areas. The epoxy fiberglass fuselages also get the full treatment, they are very well made with and eye towards strength and keeping weight down. Carbon tow has been added in high stress areas. We like that Blejzyk has given us room for radio gear and ballast or motor batteries, but still slender and sleek. The Elf feature a slip on nose cone for a very easy radio access.

This slope version features the slick S6063 MOD airfoil, V-tail and a heavier layup in the fuselage.

The wood work on these wings is pure artwork! beautiful wood, live hinges on the ailerons, and very tight gaps for less drag. Everyone that examines the wings are impressed.

We like to modify the Elf with a ballast tube and flaps. Both are easy modifications and give the plane even more capabilities!

  1. an all time favorite for me review by Jamie Budge on 3/25/2014

    I’ve always liked foam/poplar laminates for our slope that usually has 5 to 15 mph winds. The Elf seems to have some “magic” in the airfoil. It flies confidently in about 8 mph and is outrageously dynamic with 3D type aerobatics (with expanded control surfaces) in winds up to 30+. It’s fast, light, “floats” on the wind and still penetrates. Inverted flight is very impressive. I’ve let it replace my composite racing sailplanes most of the time.

  2. Spectacular Sloper with wide wind range! review by 8th on 4/29/2013

    The Blejzyk Elf is my 3rd sheeted foam wing slope soarer and was built as suggested by Aloft Hobbies using the 4.8V/900mAh AAA battery pack.
    The kit is very light and strong with reinforcements where they need to be, and it all goes together pretty easily for those with a little experience with ARF slope planes. I did add a ballast tube and carbon tow to the front fuselage pod, which made it even stiffer. The wings and tail were airbrushed and sealed with clear varnish for a polished appearance. The Elf was flown on my local slope in 9-16 mph winds and performed very well. When other ships fell out of the sky as winds died down; the Elf kept on soaring and landed smoothly with flapperons enabled. Awesome Sloper :-)
