Alien 1.2m RTF
Alien 1.2M, Slope/DLG, Standard, Multicolor/Carbon
All new for 2022, the Alien is all about fun!
Designed by Christophe Bourdon and manufactured by OA composites. The Alien is a flying wing slope soaring model that can also be used as a DLG glider. Get the standard version if you are leaning towards slope soaring in moderate conditions and DLG flying. The strong version is recommended if you will be flying primary slope and even moderate DS soaring.
The Alien is quick to build and has a high level of pre-fabrication. Many 3D printed parts are included with the model. Trays for the wing that fit servos that have a X08H footprint. A08, X08, HS08, X08 plus, and MKS 6120. There is a 3D printed servo mount for the rudder servo which is designed for the KST X06 (vertical mount). A ballast tube is also included, however you must fabricate your own lollipop style ballast that has a 19mm diameter.
Extensive hardware package with all horns, rudder spring, cable, wire, throwing peg, etc.
Consider using a standard rudder pushrod if you are going to build the strong model and fly it with ballast or light DS.
CG and elevator neutral positions are very critical with this model! Please read the manual before flight!
