This plane is Rudolph Kaiser's best
known design from the late 1950's. It is the last high-performance glider still
built from wood. It was manufactured into the 1970's, long after modern
composite gliders had made their debut. Even it's becoming a vintage glider it
remains one of the most beloved glider within the pilots.
This semi-scale reproduction is known
for its stable and gentle flying style. At this size it make it a great ship to get into scale
soaring. Will do best behind a tug and its ease of handling will make it a great
introductory ship for thermal soaring. Of course it can be used on the slope
with success as well. The wing features a modified Eppler airfoil which blends
to a symmetrical airfoil on the tips. This combination brings a wide performance
range and allows crisp aerobatics. In thermals this Ka6e is unbeatable. It just
hangs in tight turns without any tip stalling, giving the opportunity to track
those tight thermals. Combined with its unique look, this Ka6e is a real all
The elevator has a light weight CNC
built-up construction, this keeps the nose weight to a minimum. The all up
weight is kept at surprising low value. The elevator bellcrank is made from
fibreglass and all machined high strength aluminum parts. Tight ball joint
control horns gives the assembly precise and play free control. Pre-fitted CNC
cut bulkheads and wood parts for the RC gear are part of the kit. You'll find a
vacuum formed cockpit tray, which allow a simple but visually effective outfit
of the cockpit. The elevator is removable for easy transportation.
