Additional Details

The GymRipper frames quick into a quirky and delightful parasol that features classic lines and generous wing area.  Making use of popular ready to fly micro electronics, you’ll be able to recycle your “wreck” into this lovely balsa wood model and learn a new skill in the process.

Given the superb low speed flight envelope we find the GymRipper to be ideal for use in small gymnasiums and outdoors in a large back yard!  Pilots young and old will appreciate the low wing loading, nimble handling, and stable flight performance.

Designed as a part of our introductory building with balsa wood workshop series, the GymRipper is well suited to the budding plans/scratch builder.  Build the aerial delight that’s as much fun to fly as it is to construct. Build it!
