On the manufacturer’s website of this wonderful two-seater acrobatic glider today still in production, there are two things particularly interesting: the first one, how its design is a merge between the experiences done on Kobuz, Jantar and Swift S-1; the second one, first prototype test date: 1993. Since then, this glider has won many medals both at the European and World Championships.
The 1:3 scale model was created mainly for acrobatic competitions where it immediately collected very positive results. This absolutely does not preclude a nonprofessional use thanks to its flight and dynamics resulting always balanced, predictable and never critical even for those model aircrafts makers, approaching this size of gliders for the first time.
Fox design and development were based on molds of the well-known Rosenthal scale glider. Fuselage has been kept in its original design, applying more innovative and modern full composite technologies. Wings have been redesigned, moving from a classic wood construction structure to one in fiberglass plus carbon reinforcements in all the most critical parts.

Premium quality bags produced by Revoc, our partner and European leader in the field of wing and fuselage bags. They can be ordered in cordura (a highly resistant to impact and scratching and partially water-repellent fabric) rather than alu reflective fabric. Both versions are distinguished by the KB3Aero and Tomahawk logos.
NB: pictures refer to Tomahawk Aviation bags. The customized KB3Aero ones are blue, with red borders
