Imported from Italy, this is a smooth flying, highly aerobatic, high energy retaining sport sailplane designed with a thin, modern, 9% thick airfoil section which excels in lighter slope or thermal lift conditions. Generous wing area yields lighter wing loading as well. The trailing edge can be shifted up or down to suit lift conditions. Molded using state-of-the-art materials and techniques for a beautiful finish with outstanding quality.
Bhyon can be modified for electric power.
The all-molded fuselage is fiberglass reinforced with carbon fiber and Kevlar in high stress areas. The canopy is a beautiful, molded clear, scale like one that begs for a pilot bust.
The horizontal stabilizer is carbon reinforced fiberglass. The rudder is hollow molded fiberglass. The cockpit base is fiberglass with plywood servo base.
Two layup options. The “Glass” version has fiberglass wing skins, carbon spar and reinforcement, and a lower price point.
The Glass version has a flying weight of approximately 5.8 kg (204.6 oz)
The Carbon version weighs in RTF at about 6.5 kg (229 oz)
