Sleek and sporty with a little more wing area than the 1.5.
The Tom 1.7m. Sporty with a lighter feel!
Like most of the Blejzyk line, the Tom features an efficient S 7012 airfoil that guarantees excellent flight characteristics in both light and heavier wind conditions. Having more wing area than the Tom 1.5, the Tom 1.7 is an elegant flyer with a more floaty feel.
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 an eye towards strength and keeping the overall weight down.
The woodwork on these wings is pure art! Beautiful wood, live hinges on the ailerons, and very tight gaps for less drag. Everyone that examines the wings come away very impressed.
This package includes:
- Composite fuselage, made of epoxy resin, fiberglass, carbon and kevlar
- Wings - made with epoxy resin, wood veneer, balsa wood, expanded polystyrene, fiberglass, carbon and kevlar, with live hinges on ailerons
- Horizontal stabilizer and rudder - selected balsa wood, live hinges
- Includes all of the hardware that you need to assemble your model: bolts, nuts, levers, plywood and pushrods etc.
This kit does not contain the motor mount, electrical or electronic components nor glue.
