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.
In this post, I am featuring an online video review of this 1/6 scale beauty! Tony Ray’s Minimoa 1936 Glider was recently featured on a YouTube channel called Scale Me Down. This video review is Part 1 of a multi-part series where they build, fly, and review the kit. This Part 1 video features the building of the tail surfaces for the kit.
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. When you are done watching the review video, be sure to ‘Like’ the video and ‘Subscribe’ to show your support for their channel!
