Hi Steve

I have a nice 4m K18 built from a Cliff Charlesworth kit if you are interested?

Flies really well, sniffs out the lightest thermals

Fitted with nose release.

Will be looking for £350.00

Hi Barry.
Looks nice, can you give me any more details, I really need to be able to fly this as an electric glider is there an electric conversion available.
Cheers.
Steve

I believe there is an electric conversion for this model I have seen a few on youtube electrified.
I think it would need a fairly hefty motor up front as there are enough fishing lead weights up front to ballast a battleship.I have owned it for a couple of years and only flown it twice. It is so easy to fly despite its size and doesnt seem to have any vices whatsoever . Not shure what the servos are but all work ok. Airbrakes are electric blade type on the top of the wings only.

Regards
Barry
