  • Excels at 2-channel thermal and duration soaring.
  • Airfoil draws maximum performance out of a wide range of conditions—from slow thermal riding to faster-paced thermal chasing.
  • Built-up wood wing sections are expertly covered in Top Flite® MonoKote® film.
  • Hand-laid fiberglass fuselage increases durability and distributes weight evenly.
  • Goes together in as little as 2-3 hours!
  • Adjustable towhook position maximizes launch angles and altitudes.
  • For convenient transportation to and from flying sites, the large 118" span wing disassembles easily into three sections.

Enjoy the quiet beauty of sailplane piloting... and some of the simplest model assembly ever! Originally designed by Dave Thornburg, the Bird of Time ranks among Dynaflite's most popular kits—and this ARF version supplies the same soaring performance in prebuilt form.

With its broad wingspan and beautiful MonoKote finish, the Bird of Time ARF is easy to see at high altitudes—a must for experienced pilots aiming for maximum altitudes and flight times.

The Bird of Time ARF can be assembled in as little as 2-3 hours! Its durable, hand-laid fiberglass fuselage arrives already painted, and the built-up wing and tail surfaces have been covered in Top Flite® MonoKote® film. Hardware and a molded, tinted canopy are also supplied!

A radio system's on-board equipment, including a standard servo for rudder control, installs easily into the Bird of Time ARF's fuselage. Room is also available to add a ballast box, if desired, for maximum wind penetration.

The vertical fin is built into the fuselage, eliminating attachment and alignment work. The mini or micro servo required for operating the full-flying stabilizer is mounted in the fin for easy set-up and precise, positive control.
