The latest development of small, light weight, powerful brushless motors (example ART-2000) made possible to create this super light weight electro-glider. The Orion flying weight is approx. 1050 grams (37 oz.) It feature SD7080 airfoil that was specially modified for this sailplane, the benefit of that are very wide speed range and excellent thermal abilities. The Orion wing also could be built as polyhedral wing if desired by the builder.
Features:
- composite fuselage pod is made of few layers of fiber glass with glass roving and carbon fiber reinforcements for extra strength. It has removable canopy for rapid access to the radio gear. The V-shaped wing saddle with molded in nuts for the wing mounting bolts.
- tapered tail boom is made of carbon fiber/glass composite.
- wing cores are precision cut from white polystyrene foam, and the black poplar veneer is
bonded to the foam with aircraft industry grade epoxy in high pressure molds for perfect airfoil fidelity and a warp-free wing.
- vertical stabilizer is made of glass/carbon composite
- horizontal stabilizer with prehinged elevator and rudder are made from balsa and is fully laminated with light weight fiber glass cloth for durability and stiffness.
Kit contains:
Model components, all necessary hardware, plans and step by step instructions.

T-tail version is also available.
