Flying Wing




The Flying Wing is based on a model built by the late Earl VanGorder, a well known Flying Models columnist whose monthly column, Flying Things for Fledglings, was read by many aviation enthusiasts. Designed for tow line gliding, this kit has also been converted to rubber power and electric r/c.

This kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, step-by-step building and flying instructions with color photos, laser cut balsa parts, hand-picked balsa strip wood, Tissuecal™ markings, and Easy Built Lite tissue in silver. To build this model you will need a hobby knife, fine sandpaper, building board and glue.

If you want to convert your jet to rubber powered flight, read Matthew Payne's detailed notes and diagrams of his very successful conversion of the MiG 15. Flies great!
