KnifeEdge Wing

The best flying wing for combat will be light and have a fast recovery after mid-air contact. Next you need an agile and reliable airframe, which utilizes the most durable materials in their most effective configuration, a design that has been tested and proven to outperform the others.KnifeEdgePlanVw

GEMS brings you the KnifeEdge wing, a 48 inch marvel of flight! The plane is light and efficient, sport flying is an absolute joy. It will fly in light lift and thermals well too. Since it flies so well it is also one of the easiest wings to fly. When Dynamic Soaring, this design has a speed limit of around 70 mph. It makes a great DS trainer because of its remarkable durability and penetration.

This wing design has been tested on a half dozen slopes here in Ohio, plus slopes in Colorado (www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?3029527-Western-Colorado-Slope-Challange), Indiana, Kansas (http://midwestslopechallenge.com/), Michigan, Tennessee, and Utah (Soar Utah: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1183248). One problem though, our test pilots have reported very dry and dusty teeth because they can’t get the smiles off their faces.
