The Lite version has the following changes from the standard heavy build:
*1.3 lb EPP foam
*3 mil covering.
*EPP vertical tips.
*Lighter spar and no elevon tubes.
The light version AUW will be around 20oz. It is still very fast but sill fly in much lighter lift. It is more nimble and will recover faster.
Starting with the 48" SST design we increased the chord and then optimized the airfoil thickness for the larger size. The airfoil is still symmetrical for great inverted and aerobatic performance. The prototype came in at just under the 35oz max weight for slope combat. The result is faster than the F-SST and very agile. The energy retention is great. Flying acro is fun and the combat performance in average lift or better is outstanding. Kit comes with 2 CNC cut EPP wing cores.
Elevons are cut and beveled. EPP vertical wing tips.
Carbon spars. Push rods and hardware.
