If you're into high performance, duration, rubber powered models, the Sapphire is for you.

Styled with a blend of classic and modern lines the Sapphire extracts amazing performance from it's 825mm (32.5") span.

The high lift, dihedral tip wing design ensures the best lift and stability attributes without excessive drag. These are the aim of any high performance design and our experience makes sure that the Sapphire delivers!

The built-up tailplane is both effective and practical with elastic band location. The wings are fixed in the same way so that landing damage is minimised and carriage to and from the flying field is easy.

Construction is from the conventional formers and strip built over the plan. All formers and ribs require cutting out from pre-printed balsa sheets, but this is half the fun! The strength comes from the tissue covering, which is actually easier to do than you'd think.

Alternatively, you can use one of the latest, super-lightweight, heat shrink coverings if you are familiar with them. Care should be taken not to distort the lightweight structure with this method.

Needless to say, the kit comes complete with an effective plastic propeller and the necessary rubber for the motor.

Join the world of duration rubber modelling with the Sapphire.

As is usual with this kind of kit, you will still need to purchase glues.
