The SkyLite Speed is fun to fly glider with a 1.8m wing span and low EDA for flat field or slope use. The partially molded construction gives it an excellent performance, and keeps the weight and the cost down. The wing front part is of molded construction, with an integral carbon spar. The rear of the wing is made from film covered CNC cut balsa ribs with a molded trailing edge. The wing joiner is a 5mm steel rod for maximum resilience, with the wings bolted onto the glass fibre 2.4GHz friendly fuselage. The V tail is removable and is hinged with Kevlar. A full accessory pack is included.

The wing is fitted with large ready-hinged flaps to allow the model to be safely dived out of a thermal, and to assist with accurate landings.

The SkyLite Speed is very similar to the Highlight 1.8 glider that used be popular in the UK. As these have only just arrived we only have a generic instruction guide for the Sky series range. A small discount may be given to any modeller able to help producing a specific guide for this model - phone for more info.

Great floaty model thatís not slow and boring

I have the electric version which I fly loads. I run 350 watts and it climbs vertically, even with the extra weight of a Hyperion outrunner hpz3013-14 and 3s 2000mah battery and an esc It will thermal and is capable of plenty of aerobatics due to its strong wing, although being a lighter model it bleeds off energy pretty quickly during aerobatics. The fuselage isnít anything special but mine has stood the rest of time. There is a 2m version with a different airfoil (natschalnik) which is more of a pure floater, this version is good in light air but more suited to flying a bit faster and banging in rolls and loops aplenty. Iíd buy another I just wish there was a bigger version
