in the Czech Republic by LET, the L23 Blanik is the sailplane of choice for many
clubs because of its easy handling characteristics, its aerobatic ability and
the durability of its all-metal construction.
The forward sweep of the wings and the “T” tail, give it a unique
appearance in the air.
are pleased to offer a scale model of this popular sailplane.
With a span of 2.7 meters, it is large enough to aerotow, while remaining
agile enough for use on the slope or winch. Currently one of the nicest after vintage
glider that we carry, this model is a very accurate reproduction at 1:6 scale and comes
in two paint scheme: the all aluminum or all white. It comes ready for radio gear
installation. Ailerons, rudder, elevator and airbrake will control the plane.
Fixed wheel is installed and help landing. Canopy tray comes
outfitted to match full size interior and canopy is fitted.
The flying behaviour is tender and very smooth,
easy to thermal, and responsive for slope flying as well.
The kit comes completely finished. The
wings are sheeted foam wing covered with Oracover of the best quality and the ailerons are
hinged and airbrakes installed. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the
fiberglass tray, wing joiner system is
installed in the fuselage and a carbon rod is supplied as a wing joiner. All what's required is your radio gear. You will need 4
micro servos and a standard 6 channel receiver.
