Kestrel from MCM


The KESTREL 3.50 m is a close model of the German performance glider created for the world championships in the free class. With this model, we wanted to offer a glider that was both easy to fly and capable of exploiting even the most modest thermal lift.

For the wings, we used the same profile as our successful CUMULUS 3.70 m glider, combined with a more moderate aspect ratio. A great deal of work has also gone into reducing the wing loading, which has been brought down to less than 45 g/dm², with a weight in flight order of less than 3 kg. The result is a model that's easy to land and extremely grippy. Its sturdy structure means it can be flown in all weather conditions, and even perform a few aerobatic tricks.
