The Skua 1.5M glider has been designed for Slope and Hand Launch glider enthusiasts, slope soaring is great fun, if you have never tried this style of flying then give it a go, the large powerful ailerons give excellent control for beginners or experienced pilots alike. The construction is very light but rigid and the thin modified MH32/30 airfoil was specially designed to allow for superb air penetration and a wide speed range and excellent slow speed handling. The Skua 1.5M will fly in a light breeze as well as in winds reaching 40mph plus, just add ballast up to 500g and it will show its real potential. The Skua 1.5M is supplied as a kit and is reasonably straightforward to construct but a few modelling skills are required.
The manufacturers of this model use only the highest quality hand picked balsa, composite materials and seamless black poplar veneer wood sheeting to construct these flying works of art. The Skua 1.5M is the culmination of years of experience and design and its light wing loading, durability, toughness and great flight characteristics make it perfect for launching and flying in small area's.
For best results when finishing the wings and tail use the special lacquer which is shown in related items, easy to use for that professional finish.

Great little glider!
Easy to build, beautiful wings!
I maidened my Skua today at the slope - wind was around 20km/h - and the Skua few perfectly! My favorite plane now for weak conditions up to middle conditions at the slope!
