More Information:

The Windex 1200C is a powered sailplane for amateurs construction build by WINDEXAIR AB. Windex 1200c is primarily a high-performance sailplane, but its unique concept with a low-drag fin-mounted engine installation and a variable-pitch propeller turns it also into an efficient touring aircraft with a cruising speed of 210 km/h (130 mph). In addition to this the airframe of Windex 1200C is designed for aerobatic routine. The model is very well reproduced and belongs into the super scale class, with its outstanding cockpit interior, beautiful gel-coated finish and excellent flying characteristics. Flying is just amazing due to the acceptable wing loading, it thermals well without any bad behavior and smooth and predictable handling. The kit is very complete. The wings are hollow molded, spoilers installed and the ailerons are live hinged, the winglets are also fiberglass molded. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the fiberglass cockpit and has the full size opening mechanism. The hollow molded, carbon fiber reinforced wings are easily removed for transportation yet are securely held in place with massive carbon fiber wing rod. All these features give the WinDex excellent performance while still remaining very light and relatively inexpensive. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. This model is considered one of the best values on the market today.
