Banana is a relatively new comer to the 60" moldy class. As its name suggests, it has a funny looking nose cone shape that resembles a banana. It was designed with the famous French profile MG06 which was proved to be very competitive in the slope soaring contest arena. Banana's wing is molded with strong fiber glass and is VERY thinned! The penetration speed attained with such a thinned airfoil is just amazing. This racer is pretty fast even in light wind conditions. You need to install ultra thinned servos on the wing. The wing structure should be strong enough for outraging dynamic soaring. The wing and fuselage colours are prepaint on delivery.
Wing Span: 57"
Airfoil: MG06
Manufacturer: Baudis Model, please see Northeast Sailplane Products and also Fly Lab
