Wing and Fuselage cores only.
The Joker 48 is an all EPP forward swept flying wing designed for affordable fun, speed and agility. With optional rudder installed it’s one of the funnest flying wings we have ever flown. The forward swept design maintains energy in the turns and allows it to handle winds as if it were a much larger aircraft. It also has great stall characteristics and a wide speed range. Overall a great option for those looking to buy/build a fun sport aero plane with the durability of EPP.
This is the foam cores only. You will need to source the kit parts as listed in the Requirements below.
The Joker 48 is a direct scale up from the Joker 36. Being slightly larger it tends to be a bit easier to see, but not as crazy nimble as the 36.
