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 2014 Science Olympiad Competition and meets all rules and requirements as set forth by

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)
  • #11 Razor Blades and Knife Handle
  • Clear Lacquer Sealant Spray (DEFT)
