1/4 scale Kirby Kite

 

this scale model of the famous Kirby Kite vintage glider is smaller than most of the gliders the team fly’s but is an ideal size for slope soaring or aero towing from small sites. The model in the picture is one of two models the team has. Both models are from the John Watkins plan. One model is complete and flown and the second is under construction by Emilly and should be ready for flight by the summer.
