Sunbird 60” – a Lot of sailplane in a small attractive package

Produced from CAD design and CNC generated moulds, this little/big sailplane was designed with a range of possible flyers in mind from novice to expert.

It was designed to be very transportable – basically, disassembled it can fit on a car parcel shelf, so it is very convenient to carry around, but at the same time it is an airframe that in expert hands can really perform.
The aerofoil section is probably quite advanced for this kind of plane and gives a very wide speed range and possibility of operation in a wide range of wind conditions.
Sunbird flying panels and control surfaces are large enough to be effective in almost any conditions, while the flaps make it possible to land the plane slowly and safely even at small flying sites.
Added to that, the radio bay is large enough to enable installation of the servos and radio pack without resorting to micro surgery, while the fuselage and in fact the whole plane still has a pleasing and balanced shape. Remember: “If it looks good, it flies good” – and that really is true with this little whizzer.
Flight tests in a wide range of conditions have revealed a very good turn of speed, high manoeuvrability, no bad habits, and very controllable landing characteristics.
For the expert and novice alike the Sunbird represents a lot of “big” sailplane features in a small attractive package.
