As reviewed in Quiet Flyer of August 2003.

The Polish SZD-55 is a modern high-performance Standard Class sailplane designed for the serious competition pilot. Its good handling characteristics make it a popular choice for skilled pilots and for use as a club sailplane. With an aspect ratio of 23.4 and a L/D of 44, it performs well in a wide range of soaring conditions, constantly placing at the top in international soaring competitions. The SZD glider company produced also the famous Mucha and Foka gliders.

ICARE is pleased to offer a model of this aircraft in 1:5 scale. The good handling characteristics of the full-scale aircraft translate well into this fine model. 

The kit comes completely finished. The wings are hollow core molded, the ailerons are cut-out and live hinged, airbrakes installed ready to hook up. The clear plastic canopy needs to be fitted to the fiberglass tray and so allows you to complete the cockpit interior, wing joiner system is installed in the fuselage. A retractable landing wheel is also installed. All what's required is your radio gear. You will need 4 micro servos three standard servos and a 6 channel receiver.
