Carbonette 12 is the result of Joshua Finn’s 20+ years of free flight glider experience. Featuring strong, lightweight construction and hand selected balsa, the Carbonette 12 is a high performance 12″ span glider eligible for indoor Standard Catapult Glider and the Beat the Vart events at Muncie and elsewhere. With a modern Buddenbohm airfoil and a coat of minwax varnish it will glide for over 60 seconds with only an AMA catapult for launch energy. Even a strong throw will provide a satisfying glide. Includes an optional finger grip for hand launching.
These are great for the annual glider postal contests hosted by endlesslift.com and local small field competitions. You might want to order more than one–they thermal out of sight quickly!
Please note that this model uses very thin balsa and an advanced construction technique for the wing construction. If you have not built a free flight glider before, please consider purchasing One Sheet Glider first to get you feet wet so you can get the most from your Carbonette 12.
