This thing is sweet! 0530192204.jpg

It does come with a little Chinese ingenuity...

But, over all, its a 150% hawkeye at 34" it will make an awesome Fpv project... I'm ordering more asap!

With a bit of care the Lidl glider most certainly does RC .

Not a quick conversion, the trailing edges are extended to give a 'proper' aerofoil section.
Bank and yank (no rudder) and at Just 50 g heavier than the basic chuck glider no reinforcement is necessary. With 18% more wing area it is a docile flyer and It thermals nicely too!

Looks very clean! Nice!

Do you recall what it weighed to start?

Ive made no real attempt at keeping this one light (twin motor, 4 channel, and fpv camera) and I'm at 235-265 depending on battery selection. Only reinforcement ive done is "surface spars" with strips of packing tape. Ive had good luck with this method, adds a lot of rigidity for very little weight...
