Our Latest Laser Cut Short Kit Is the 103" Leprechaun Glider
The Leprechaun was designed by R A Twoomey in 1950 as a low aspect ratio free flight glider, and was a record breaker in it's day. Although the span is only 103", the wing and tail area are huge! Our kitset is engineered true to the original design, with the under cambered aerofoil, pylon mounted wing and tailplane, and stick construction of the fuselage. We have re-engineered the tailplane mounting for a simple and sturdy mount, and drawn a new plan showing the RC conversion of the rudder and tailplane, and the new tailplane mount.
