You have not seen a plane like this one before! Introducing the brand new PCM Fritz flying wing!! Looking to add something unusual, fast and exciting to your collection? If so, the Fritz might be just the thing.
The first time I saw sketches of this plane, and knew they were coming from the renowned glider house of PCM, I knew this was going to be something really special. If you are not familiar with PCM, they have been in the slope and thermal glider market for a very long time and are well known for bringing timeless high performance gliders to the market. The Fritz like its short name is a short but amazing little plane that packs some impressive performance.
The Fritz is a one piece fully molded carbon flying wing with an unusual quasi gull wing profile. The airframe is very stiff in both bending and torsional modes. I could go on and on about the merits of this unique design but it is more efficient to let you the prospective builder / pilot to peruse the comprehensive build manual and view the video below.
As you can see this plane is quick and nimble and for once we have a flying wing that looks cool and offers outstanding performance.
The Fritz comes with a NiMh flight battery, wing bags and a hardware build-out kit (see pics).
