Another beautiful example of the quality we expect from Valenta models. The DragonFly Strong E-version keeps the weight down without any compromising anything!
The DragonFly Strong Electric version is the same outstanding planform as the glider version, but with obvious changes to the fuselage to accommodate the power system of your choice. The fuselage is made of glass and CF, while the wings are built up with a Carbon D tube for strength, and a beautiful Oracover application that's hard to beat!
While this plane is contest proven, she is also amazingly docile (another testament to Valenta's quality). This would be a great ship to expand your thermalling skills with, the light wing loading helps to ensure you will see the thermal, max it out, and still be able to find the next one, while the progressive polyhedral and swept tips will help to maintain the turns needed to really core the thermal.
Besides, if all else fails, you can always bring the motor online and do whatever you want ;-)
