J&H Aerospace kits
#1
I didn't see my stuff listed amongst the available goodies, so here goes.

We make a kit for the most reliable swing wing in the world, the Switchblade S, and it flies quite well even with not a hint of sanding:

 



And we just started selling a boost glider, the Aleda-R. It's a modern take on the Flat Cat concept and helps fill the gap (gaping hole?) left by the closure of Edmonds.

As of this weekend, the J&H Aerospace Windlance series now provides options for all boost/glider categories from 1/8A to D power (and E if you're brave enough to play with E9's while they still remain).

After Bernard Cawley's unfortunate crash at NARAM this year, I redesigned the fuselage to eliminate the weak spot over the wing where flutter was propagating. Multiple piston launches have failed to generate in flight failures of any kind even with intentionally too light balsa, so I'm considering that flaw to be eliminated.

I'll be doing the same thing with the Aleda series very soon. We're also hard at work on a new S4A design that should have excellent performance.

I see that the build video has successfully uploaded, so here we go on the next bit...

My first boost glider kit in production was the Aleda-R, and it has proven reasonably popular, although it's been somewhat overshadowed by the straighter boosting Windlance. Say goodbye to that problem. The photo doesn't show it, but I've moved the pod forward so that these problems are gone. Now you have a straight launching thermal hunter. And kids love tossing them around because they're so stable.

The diminuitive 6" span Micro Aleda-R is a serious contender for 1/8A competition and is super easy to build and trim.

The new Aleda-R B/C is a serious performance machine for A-C motors. The glide is particularly impressive. This one is definite thermal bait

They fly really great.  I built two of them and one of the D powered kits.  They work really great :-)

Thank you. Smile

Please get some video of the Windlance D when you get a chance. There need to be more videos of these monsters going up.
