We are pleased to announce that the Minimach line of gliders has been improved. Working closely with Sanda we have been able to make a couple of changes to the Mini mach. Firstly Sanda has generously agreed to install the ball link control horns in the V-tails during manufacture. Installing the ball links was definitely the hardest step in assembling the plane and now we no longer need to worry about it. The other major change was moving the flap hinge from the top, of the wing to the bottom. This allows for a servo linkage geometry that can pull the flap down to 90° without resorting to cutting the wipers or the other modifications that we have needed to do with the previous generation.
Enjoyable to fly and pretty easy on the pocket book too. The Mini Mach wing is molded primarily from fiberglass and reinforced with carbon tow in all the high stress areas. In between the layers of fiberglass is a layer of herex foam which separates the inner and outer wing skins giving them their high stiffness and resistance to torsional loads. The fuselage is also molded from fiberglass and reinforced with carbon tow in the high stress areas. This results in a light air-frame that is stiff but reasonably flexible.
An excellent molded composite, glider.
