Mini Blade

1.5-Meter DS, Glass 1pc. w/Flaps

The Mini Blade is an outstanding all purpose glider. Featuring a one piece wing with flaps, this plane has great potential as a DSer, Man on Man racer, and sport flyer.

We use ours for fun flying and 60" Man on Man slope racing, where the Mini Blades are doing very well in the SCSR League events

We also use our Mini Blades for Dynamic Soaring on the small slope near our shop. Limited by a tree and mild lift conditions, we don't have a lot of room for the bigger Blade models, so the Mini Blade is the perfect companion to take to take to the "dark side". We readily achieve speeds in excess of 130 mph on our little slope, but have gone over 150 mph at premier slopes like Parker Mtn. and Vincent. 

The one piece wing is your typical glass, balsa, carbon spar'd construction, with full span carbon main and trailing edge spars, with a glossy exterior finish painted in the molds in a variety of schemes. We never know what we are going to get, so ask before you order if you are particular.

We recommend using our custom made 5 cell 720 mah NiHM battery pack, HS-125 flat wing servos for the ailerons. Many builders opt for one single elevator servo such as an HS-85MG, but if you want a full functioning rudder, use HS-81mg servos for the tail group (or similar). A Hitec SuperSlim 8 channel receiver fits very well, but only 5 channels are needed. Unfortunately, the Electron-6 receiver does not fit well because of its top mounted plugs, but it can be done.

The ballast tube fits 9/16" dia. ballast slugs, and you can fit between 12 - 14 oz of ballast in the tube that's accessible under from the nose. Pre-cut Ballast kits are available as an option. Call us for ballast kit details and availability
