Flying wings... Cortina and Taborca!!! :)
« on: November 03, 2017, 16:47:18 PM »
2 more gliders Well, half gliders, they don't have tails!

First, a good old MPX Cortina, and second, a glider I always wanted since it has been released, a Taborca!! (from LET)

Very little work left to be done to get the 2 machines ready to commit aviation, and really looking forward the first launch!

I do have a complete half-scale plan for the Vampir (a copy of the original plan) - let me know if you want to borrow it  :)
