Aleda-R Boost/Glider

(2 customer reviews)




The Aleda-R is our popular Aleda glider redesigned for rocket launching. Using free flight stability techniques, Josh and Hope have created an easy to build glider which launches straight and provides a reliable transition into a thermal hunting glide. The booster pod recovers using a traditional streamer for safe, snag free recovery.

This model is capable of 60 second flights on 13 mm A engines without even sanding an airfoil into the wings. Just sand the edges round and go have fun, or if you want ultimate performance, sand in a Stanfoil section and let the soaring begin.

Aleda R Series manual

Aleda-R features an 8″ wingspan and can launch on Estes 1/2A3-2T, A3-4T, and A10-3T rocket motors or European equivalents with shims to accommodate 10mm rocket motors.

You will need an Estes style launch pad and controller.
