Hello

This is Andante, my favorit model.

There are some new things that I never imagine to build in my work shop.
But, I acept the challenge.

-Wing whit carbon fiber spar caps
-Carbon fiber capstrips, and trailing edge
-A composite structure using balsa and CF
-Light and strong model, only 16oz whit batterie 1200mA 3S

Andante engine is a Komodo, KH283 V2, turning a 10X8 Graupner prop, whit a static trust of 25oz.

I hope you like it.

In my concern, sailplanes do not need engines, they need wings.
And they need be light also.
So Hyperbolic Lady is both, big enough, and light, whit a week engine.
The concept is creat a underpower model, that climb's flying on is wings.

Andante is another conception, first the engine after the sailplane, also very light, but full off power.

I like both:)
