Dynaflite Bird Of Time Sailplane Kit
Put your sailplane experience to use on a model that time has proven to be a winner! The unlimited class, 118" span Bird of Time pairs refined looks with superior performance-for example, its thin wing and light wing loading (5.52 oz/ftÂ²) provide a super-low sink rate, as well as near-legendary lift/drag rate. Its engineered as gracefully as it performs: the slender balsa/ply fuselage tapers toward a full-flying stabilizer, while the 2-piece wing features a large, 1/4" wing rod and fully-sheeted "D" tube.
