Biplanes have always held a special position in the history
of aviation. Even today biplanes are still very popular, especially for aircraft
which are required to combine agility, relatively low wing loading and compact
dimensions. The distinctive biplane "look" also attracts many modelers to these
aircraft, but in many cases they are frightened off by the considerable extra
work and complexity compared to mono wing airframes. Not so with the Gemini
ELAPOR model, which is quick to build, fast to rig, and available at a very
resonable price, even with the suggested brushless motor power package. In
comparison with models of "classic" balsa and film covering construction, it is
downright inexpensive and infinitely more durable.
- The model's flying characteristics are good-natured, and its ground
handling at take-off and landing are fantastic.
- Light wing loading for low landing speed.
- The model can be dismantled in just one minute , so it's easy to
transport, even where space is very limited . Most cars can carry the plane
in one piece.
- The Gemini is designed to accept various motors and battery types.
- Can be completed either with an enclosed cabin or a simple windscreen.
- The steerable tailwheel provides great control during take-offs and
accurate taxiing when on the ground.
