Description

Phoenix Models K8b - 3.5m ARTF

The Phoenix Models 3.5m K8b is a lovely almost ready to fly approx 1/4 scale model of the popular Alexander Schleicher Ka 8b. It is a very similar size to the much missed Flair K8, but is ready built, and less expensive.

The K8b is the slightly better performing -b version with a bubble canopy. The model includes a pilot figure to look the part when in the air. The ARTF model has been beautifully built from laser cut balsa and ply and is covered in white and red Oracover (Profilm) to a very high standard. The only work required to get the model in the air is installing the RC.

Although it is new to the UK, there have been many very positive flying reports from Germany and the US. The easily transportable size, good handling, and light yet tough structure make this an ideal first quarter scale model. This special introductory price may be changed at any time.
