So You Wanna BUY a Wing?
Updated 28th May 2005
Currently there are only a few flying wings available for sale. The
most well known in America would be the Klingberg Wing 2m and the KW
100, possibly one of the nicest looking wings in my opinion.
Klingberg made a few different wings and his contribution to the
availability is sadly missed as unfortunately these are now out of
production. It may still be possible to find some on the shelves of
some of the hobby stores around America.
Hey! you can still build a Klingberg Wing or a Klingberg Sport Wing
(.20 size power). You can order a construction set (plans, photo inst,
peel and stick templates) for either plane.

wing to a more hortonish lift distribution HERE

sloper called Geier. What a pity. The Vampir was a radical looking beast
