Stevens AeroModel was founded with the passion to inspire a new generation of model builders through increased accessibility to high-quality products that are the gateway to fostering a lifetime of creativity and enjoyment in aeromodeling. With laser-like focus on design, ease-of-assembly, and comprehensive instruction we deliver to the hobby community exciting products that ensure sucess for the novice and time constrained hobbyist.

    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

    What you Will Need
