  • StevensAero - SCImOn 30 cm. Elastic/Catapult Launched Glider (2/pkg.)

    The SCImOn 30 CLG is a larger version of the Stevens AeroModel SCImOn and has been developed for club and educational one design programs at the maximum allowable wingspan (30cm) for the 2012/2013 Science Olympiad Elastic Launched Glider competition.  Package includes: two (2) airframes, launch stick, competition grade elastic, assembly instructions, and flight trim tutorial.

    Why Laser Engineered?
    When building for competition consistency is key to finishing at the top of the pack! Hand, die, and even laser cut parts from other vendors can still present the novice builder a significant challenge to assemble. Laser Engineered airframes from Stevens AeroModel overcome the novice builders lack of well developed building skills and improve the build quality for veteran craftsman. Our Laser Engineered products utilize the exacting tolerances of our well tuned laser cutters combined with, hand selected AAA grade materials, and thoughtful construction aids designed into each and every part. A Laser Engineered structure, from Stevens AeroModel, ensures a quicker, straighter, and more repeatable build and, regardless of your building skill level, will improve your success.

    One Design Glider
    The affordable SCImOn 30 CLG makes a great one design glider for your educational or club competition. Your group will benefit from building and competing with the same glider design as it will be easier to give instruction during the build and trim process. As competitors will essentially begin from the same design, the individuals success in group competition is governed by how quickly they master the aerodynamic concepts that will allow their gliders to launch higher, transition smoother, and stay aloft longer!

    Science Olympiad Ready
    The SCImOn 30 CLG is legal for use in the 2012/2013 Science Olympiad Competition and meets all rules and requirements as set forth by soinc.org

    Included in the Kit

    • Two (2) SCImOn 30 CLG Airframe Kits, Laser Engineered For Success!
    • Length of Competition Grade Elastic Launcher
    • Launch Stick
    • Clay Ballast
    • Plan Set
    • Assembly Instructions
    • Flight Trim Tutorial

    What you Will Need
    Aside from the positive can-do attitude of your willing participant, you'll only need glue! CA instant-set glues will decrease your build time while aliphatic wood glue or model cements produce a more flexible/durable joint and increase build and repair time accordingly. No sharps (razor blades) are required for a successful assembly!

    • Medium CA Glue (10 Minutes for Assembly with CA) or
    • Aliphatic Wood Glue or Cement (1-2 Hours for Assembly Wood Glue)

    Optional Building Supplies
    The following supplies are not required for your success but will improve your ability to fine tune the design for optimal performance, improve airframe longevity, and make repairs:

    • Sanding Block
    • CA Glue Accelerator (If using CA glues in assembly)

    Our Playmite (75) is a pint-sized package that is bursting at the seams with nostalgic charm. This compact (75 square inch) micro radio control model airplane kit, designed for the ParkZone PKZ3352 ultra micro electronics; offers opportunity to fly both indoors, at the local gymnasium, or bop from roof-top to roof-top outdoors in the late evening lift.  

    Model Features:

    Quality American components and manufacturing, our Playmite kits are derrived from only the finest AAA balsa and hardwood components sourced from state-side mills and cut in-house at our Colorado facility.  Unique in this size offering, the Playmite features a double-surfaced airfoil and removable shock mounted wing enhancing both the crafts penetration and glide performance.  Beautiful throughout, our design captures the nostalgic good looks of the subject matter and incorporates the kind of thoughtful engineering and attention to detail that scores of modelers have come to expect from a Stevens AeroModel kit.  Designed for success, in addition to every supplied part being precisely laser-cut and engineered to fit, the entire assembly is thouroughly covered by a step-by-step photo illustrated assembly manual; clearly leading the novice builder through kit construction, finishing, and ultimately flying the completed model.  Your time is valuable, and we are certain you'll agree our Playmite (75) delivers the kind of time saving interlocking construction, detailed documentation, quality materials, and manufacturing your hobby investment deserves.  Exclusively from Stevens AeroModel.
