Description* :
Precision radio controlled ultralight rc gliders nature inspired - hand made - hand fabricated - dlg - hlg take flight and soar the skies with eagles and hawks, where no other glider can reach with such ease as the firefly 2.0 the secret lies in its combination of super lightweight footprint, an arrow dynamic airframe and an extensive design with the new auto stabilize airfoil providing ultimate lift with virtually no head wind. Finding that perfect thermal can no longer be such a challenging task with radio controlled rc gliders. The fundamentals of radio controlled gliders for officiant lift has been lost and overlooked in today’s model rc gliders and rc airplanes. The total weight of an airplane/glider plays a crucial role when it comes to lift as most models are manufactured using molded epo foam, which is extremely heavy in weight. A glider with the least amount of weight has the potential to gain altitude effortlessly. I initially designed the firefly 2.0 to fit my needs as an rc pilot of 17 years, i was very dissatisfied with most radio control gliders in the market due to their heavy weight. Most model gliders this size ( 32" wingspan ) and delta style wings are molded with dense foam making the airplane very heavy at 180 to 300 grams which lowers the buoyancy ratio dramatically. Always looking for the perfect glider with the perfect size to weight ratio, something virtually impossible to find in radio controlled models that are manufactured using machine molds. After a great success in the design and flight characteristics of the first firefly in 2018, i’m truly proud to offer the new firefly 2.0 design with super light weight of 95 grams. Limited production - this is the last kit of the firefly 2.0. This kit has a minor flaws, a section of the wings trailing edge has a slight separation, which is not a big issue at all since the ailerons will be covered with the provided lamination also epoxy, this will not effect the glider one bit. For that reason the price... Read More
