The latest development of small, light weight, powerful brushless motors like the ART-500 made possible to create this super light weight electro-glider. The Sky-EL flying weight is approx. 470 grams (16.5 oz.) It features the SD7080 airfoil that was specially modified for this sailplane, the benefit of that are superb thermal abilities and very low stall speed. The Sky wing also could be built as aileron wing if desired by the builder.
- composite fuselage pod is made of few layers of fiber glass with glass roving and carbon fiber reinforcements for extra strength. It has removable canopy for rapid access to the radio gear. The V-shaped wing saddle with molded in nuts for the wing mounting bolts.
- tapered tail boom is made of carbon fiber/glass composite.
- wing cores are precision cut from white polystyrene foam, and the black poplar veneer is
bonded to the foam with aircraft industry grade epoxy in high pressure molds for perfect airfoil fidelity and a warp-free wing.
- vertical stabilizer with hinged rudder and horizontal stabilizer with hinged elevator are made from balsa and is fully laminated with light weight fiber glass cloth for durability and stiffness.
