Micro BOT Standard version

(6 customer reviews)




This classic downscale by Ross Clements maintains Dave Thornburg’s classic outlines but substitutes completely new structure to make building this 48″ span sailplane a snap! Despite its diminutive size, this model preserves the incredible glide performance of the full scale original. Our Micro BOT builds to about 90g as a pure high start glider and 100-130g as an electric launch sailplane with unlimited vertical climb performance.

    Hey Josh! Please let me know when these “Micr Bot” kits are available! Thanks man!

  2. Craig Dieter

    PLEASE, PLEASE let me know when this is available. I built the original from a kit and LOVED it. I have been building stick-and-tissue kits for close to 60 years and have always thought of doing a small size Bird of Time. Yours looks FANTASTIC!!! Hope I don’t have to wait too long. Thanks.

    Just Received my MICRO BOT today 11/9/20. What a Super Looking Kit. The Covering being included is a real nice touch. I want to get started on this ASAP, but I do have a full building board, so it might be awhile….UNLESS we get a virus lockdown. I’ll have something to do!!

    I have had my Bot completed and flying for over 6 month now and it is a great plane. I have flown it in winds up to 15mph with higher gusts. I have a V tail and the Conventional tail Bot and love them both. Easy to build and great fun to fly. I’m thinking to get the Drifter.
