Welcome to Part 5 of an online video series where we are reviewing the 1/6 scale Tony Ray’s Minimoa 1936 Glider which was recently featured on a YouTube channel called Scale Me Down. This video review is Part 5 of their multi-part series where they build, fly, and review the kit. This Part 5 video is the last video in the series and features the maiden flight and flight performance review of the kit.
The Minimoa is a classic vintage sailplane with beautiful lines and great performance. It has been a favorite within the sailplane community since the 1930s and has been featured in a couple previous FlyBoyz posts. Tony Ray’s AeroModels has produced two scale versions of this iconic sailplane. The newest of those kits is a laser cut 1/6 scale model with a wingspan of 3 meters (112″). It is designed for 4 to 6-channel RC and can be built for slope soaring, aero tow, thermal soaring, or as a motor glider with the inclusion of a brushless motor.
A lot of work goes into an online review such as this so I would like to thank Scale Me Down for all their efforts with this video series. When you are done watching the review video, be sure to ‘Like’ the video and ‘Subscribe’ to show your support for their channel!
