Soar among the birds with this fully 3D printed R/C glider. Modeled after the common seagull, it fits right in on coastal slopes. Constructed primarily of lightweight PLA, the Seagull achieves a super low wing loading of 17 grams/dm2. This means it will stay aloft even in light lift. It features a unique all moving tail for yaw and a simple wing holding mechanism.
This listing is only for the 3D printed parts, no radio gear included. Must be assembled.
We use a mix of light weight PLA and normal PLA as suggested by the designer. We offer only the glider version. These planes are sensitive to heat, it is best you come by our shop to pick up this kit, and you should not leave it in a hot car. 3D printed planes are fragile and will not last as long as a normal plane.
With the above said, these are a lot of fun. They fly well and look GREAT in the air. Very easy to fool people and wildlife into thinking this is a real bird. Leading all turns with rudder really makes it look like a real bird.
