Opus V Opus V
By Brett
In a world filled with so many 1.5 meter and 3 meter race planes, the Opus V fits nicely into the under-populated mid-size slope glider class. With a span of about 2 meters, the slick Opus looks a bit like an undersized F3F racer. Its smooth, high-speed performance has made it a popular slope sport plane in southern California. The Opus is big enough to have the smooth handling characteristics and speed of a larger plane, yet it's less expensive then a full blown unlimited F3F ship.

Kelly Kelly
By Pat Mattes
It seems that beautiful sailplanes always fly better, and this review just confirms that statement. The Kelly is high quality through and through, goes together easily and quickly, and flies well both powered and gliding. Simply put, it is just one sharp little sailplane.
