The Summa Classic (sounds like "zooma") is
the first all hollow core composite rudder, elevator, and spoiler (RES)
aircraft designed for an extremely broad customer base. We are listening
to you! From the first look inside the box you will know this is a
different airplane. We calculate that the RTF kit is 98% complete. Using
our unique installation method, you should be ready to fly in minutes.
Just install the
2 servos (3 w/spoilers - about 15 more minutes), do a few minor checks,
balance, and fly. Go to our RTF
instruction sheet to see how easy it really is. The standard build
Summa should be ready in a day (1/2 day if you are an experienced builder).
This aircraft can be flown comfortably by the advanced
novice who is:
Looking for a fun fly glider or thermal duration contest
winner that is affordable
Can withstand full "on" electric winch launch
and zoom or hi start
Is easy and predictable to launch
Can fly slow and can fly fast
Slide on nose cone opening is triple reinforced - saves damage from
those "dorked" landings
We have not left out the expert pilot as well.
This plane has been designed for competition in the RES class (most
venues). It has a very broad performance envelope that can help you find
those minimal thermals yet can fly fast to get out of performance
busting down drafts. This was all by design. What we got as a
bonus was the surprising "legs" it has to get you home when you find yourself way out there in less than perfect conditions. We think
this will be our largest production product in RnR's 11+ year history.
We think you'll support that belief.
The Summa has a three-piece wing making it easily
transportable. The kit includes all graphics and stripping tape in your choice of available
colors (white, black, chrome, blue, yellow). In order to make this our best value
glider ever, we have restricted the aircraft color to red on top and fuse and
black on bottom. Other colors are optional at an additional charge.
