Introducing the Jasmine, produced by Japanese manufacturer PILOT.
The Jasmine is a 1.9 meter electric glider with fully sheeted built up wing and a stiff yet light fuselage. This makes the Jasmine a middleweight electric glider that is tougher than the typical film over balsa rib thermal ships. The Jasmine sports ailerons, a flap, and a cross tail. The flap spans the center section of the wing and is controlled by a single servo in the wing. The ailerons are controlled by independent servos. The servo pockets are precut and the control surface hinges are pre-installed. The fuselage is laid up from 2.4GHz friendly fiberglass with carbon reinforcements and sports a pre-attached beautifully made and machined carbon tail boom. The entire unit feels good in the hand, not too soft or flexy and not too heavy.
In the small bits department, the kit comes with control horns, screws for mounting the motor, shrink tubing for the servos (for gluing servos into the wing) and for the servo extensions (keeps them from coming unplugged), a ply servo tray and some velcro. Carbon wing joiners, music wire control rods and tubes and servo covers. An assembly manual (with decal set) is included. The manual is written in both English and Japanese and has pictures that greatly simplify understanding the build tasks.
