The Champion with its beautiful T-tail and elliptical wing shape is simply breath-taking to watch as it thermals almost out of sight at your favorite field. Its 2.75m wingspan is large enough to be an outstanding performer while still being small enough to transport easily when disassembled. The gel-coated fiberglass fuselage is light and strong. The Champion's unique balsa built-up wing appearance is created using CNC technology construction in combination with CNC cut wing sheeting. The result is a great looking wing that is even strong enough for mild aerobatics. The wings and tail surfaces are pre-covered in Ultracote and only the rudder requires hinging. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. The Champion is considered one of the best values on the market today. Each part is carefully hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail.

Champion flies as it looks, smooth and gentle with incredible duration.

Nice flying sailplane
Scott Jackson (Wake Forest, NC) 1/19/2014 8:47 PM
This is a nice flying plane. It needs rudder mixed with ailerons, and flaperons make it easier to land - otherwise getting it to sit down on landing is a challenge.
