The ELF is a small discus-launch glider ideal for sport flying while on travel or in your neighborhood park. The ELF is based on MIT's Dr. Drela's HLG glider design, the Apogee.

Due to it's low weight, with a scant wing loading of 2.77* oz./sq. ft. ready-to-fly, the ELF is able to sustain flight in the smallest and lightest of thermals.

Pod - Features a transparent yellow or white injection-molded pod. A custom carbon boom is connected into the pod, on which the receiver battery (a one-cell 240mAh LiPo pack
with an integrated charging circuit), two servos and the receiver are mounted on. A removable nose cone allows for easy access to RC components.

Wing - Carbon D-Box construction and carbon-capped balsa ribs combined with a vertical balsa grain spar provide a stout one-piece wing. The wing features the AG series
of DLG airfoils designed and refined by MIT's Dr. Drela.
A carbon "T" launching blade that is capable of being installed on either wing, allows for comfortable launches. The
wing is professionally covered in Violet, Blue or Red Oracover to provide strength and stiffness.

Tail - The tail surfaces are composed of light-weight foam, which is reinforced with carbon, fiberglass and then vacuum-bagged. A one-gram miniature v-mount allows
for the full flying stabilizer to give the pilot infinite pitch control.
Carbon push-rods are pre-installed.

A complete hardware package, carbon pushrods and horns are included.
