For folks like us there is nothing quite so stunning as a high aspect ratio glider in a knife edge turn with its wing tips whistling smooth arcs through the air.
Top model has designed a very nice, 1/4 scale Ventus. The wings are sheeted foam reinforced with fiber glass and carbon and then covered with oracover film. The fuselage is constructed of fiber glass, has a solid feel and a very nice finish. The cockpit is fully detailed with a seat, detailed instrument panel and a functioning window vent in the canopy. The retractable landing wheel and the tail wheel are pre-installed. The wings electrical plugs and servo leads are preinstalled as well as the plugs and receiver leads in the fuselage.
