This Nimbus 4  is incredibly well scaled down, a little masterpiece that reproduces the full size Nimbus 4 based at Elmira. Some will recognize the numbering.

At 1:10 scale this should be a small scale glider, but the high aspect ratio of the wing makes it still a comfortable sized plane of 2.6 m span. Designated for the intermediate pilot this is a very nice plane to fly. What a great look in the air. The wings structure are designed in a such a way that they flex like the full size, amazing! Not suitable for aerobatics, it has a realistic flight attitude in the air. Make some tight thermal turns and see how these wings act like its 26m counterpart. The wing does not have flaps. Best suited for slope, it may be histarted, winched or aero towed with a small tug.

This glider comes completely built, and ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field. The wings are sheeted foam and already covered with Oracover. Molded winglets come prefitted. The high gloss, gel coated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes and the rudder and elevator control tube installed. The cockpit comes with all main components like the instrument mushrooms, seats, head rests done. Tow release and retract are optional and can be ordered installed and functional. A small package hardware and building instructions are completing the kit.
