The Longshot 4 from Horejsi is a well-designed F3K glider that has been constructed from extruded polystyrene, fibreglass and carbon.
Reinforced pipe stiffness increased by about 50%
Optimized tail (plus SOP), reinforced with carbon
Fast directional stabilization after start
Servos to the fuselage lower the moment of inertia
Higher damping rotation after starting
With the high-quality construction you would expect from Horejsi, the Longshot 4 Discus Launch Glider is underpinned by a carbon and Kevlar gondola and has a 1490mm wingspan. The wing and tail surfaces are constructed from extruded polystyrene, fibreglass and carbon. This Horejsi glider features reinforced pipe stiffness that has been increased by about 50%. The tail (and SOP) has been reinforced with carbon, giving you faster directional stabilisation after launch. The servos to the fuselage also lower the moment of inertia, allowing for higher damping rotation. The Longshot 4 is a great step-up from the UMX Whipit and builds upon Horejsi's reputation for quality gliders. Order yours now.

Found the kit fairly difficult to build with relatively poor instructions (first aircraft of this type for me). Relied a lot on help from net posts plus a lot of care and common sense. Used recommended add-ons by Modelflight - JR DS387HV servos, Spectrum AR6260 receiver. Tight fit.
But it does fly really well and the launch is impressive.
