This is a success story in full sized glider, it won the 1995 Aerobatic World championship in France. It was designed as a successor of the famous Kobuz 3 in Poland. It took only 7 months to the designer and the manufacture to make the first flying prototype.

The model is a 1:2.75 scale semi-scale reproduction of this famous Polish aerobatic sailplane. This model is built to the same high quality standard featured in all ICARE kits. It carries the HQ1.5 airfoil, giving the sailplane smooth, fast and versatile flying characteristics. It is fully aerobatic, has a wide speed range, thermals well, and races well. At 5.5m wingspan, it features the extended wing tips.

Four servos will have to be fitted in the wings for the ailerons and the airbrakes, two standard sized servos will be used for the elevator and rudder which are respectively actuated via a pushrod. A retract servo and a tow release might be fitted in the nose for aero towing.

This all moulded kit is coming with a high quality white epoxy Fiberglas fuselage, and has the square wing joiner carrying tube installed. The fiberglass moulded, carbon reinforced wings are finished, no additional work is required on the wings, except installing the wing servo. The elevator is finished, the rudder is finished too. A clear plastic canopy and a Fiberglas canopy tray is supplied and has to be assembled. Only a few hours are required to finish this glider. A hardware package is completing the kit.
