Keil Kraft Caprice Balsa Glider Model Kit

Wingspan = 1295mm (51") 

The Caprice is a competition level free flight glider kit that offers outstanding performance and stability. It flies so well that it requires your choice of dethermaliser system to prevent it flying away! The Caprice makes a great choice for an RC or timer dethermaliser, the size also lends itself to a full RC conversion for the more adventurous builders among us. The large 51" wingspan offers stunning performance and a very rewarding long duration flights. The polyhedral wing offers great stability and the highly efficient aerofoil provides excellent lift. The fuselage is constructed from simple flat balsa sides and the tailplane looks beautiful thanks to the geodetic rib format.
