Veneered Foam wings with soarfilm covering.
The extreme low drag helps penetrate through strong headwinds such as this 30knot day at a south facing cliff at Sydney's Long Reef.
The front all flying canard elevator is mechanically linked to inboard elevators on rear canard wing. Outboard ailerons. No rudder control fitted or necessary.
Centre of gravity is approx 1cm forward of root of rear wing.
Inverted (upsidedown) performance identical to right way up.
It is nearly impossible to stall at landing speed and it is possible to pull full up elevator to slow it down for a vertical spot landing and still maintain roll control.
Interestingly, even though the fuselage was only made from styrene rather than tougher ABS the monocote form was very resistant to hard landings and collisions
