Great Planes ARFS to the Classy Lady!

Mar 04, 2011 No Comments by

The Carl Goldberg Classics® Sophisticated Lady and Gentle Lady have long been recognized as two of America’s favorite sailplanes. Now, Great Planes® has updated these classics for today’s avid glider enthusiasts. The airframes on both have been re-engineered with laser-cut, interlocking parts for even greater strength and straightness. And while they now arrive covered in genuine MonoKote® film, they feature the same trim schemes as the iconic originals. But they do more than mirror the originals’ good looks; they also offer the same gentle handling that sport pilots enjoy and first-time pilots need. Their high-wing design makes them stable and easy to handle even at the low speeds new pilots prefer. They’re forgiving teachers for first-timers, relaxing for old pros and ready to start chasing thermals in just a few hours.

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.
