The Tigra 1.4M flying wing glider has been specially engineered for hand launch and slope enthusiasts, slope flying is great fun and is a must if you have never tried it, the Tigra would make an ideal first sloper so give it a try, you will love it.
It has a modified JK3780 airfoil which was designed to allow superb air penetration, excellent handling and an incredible speed range, it can also be sling launched where it can reach high altitudes allowing it to easily catch the thermals and achieve a long glide time.
The Tigra 1.4M flying wing is supplied in kit form and is reasonably easy 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 Tigra 1.4M flying wing 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.
