A high performance 48" wingspan EPP glider with a great speed and maneuverability!

The BD-5 (sometimes referred to as the "Acrojet") was a sleek single-seat airplane designed by legendary kitplane-maker Jim Bede. Now you can build your own BD-5 and enjoy its reknowned speed and performance! The airframe is without a doubt the strongest on the market and will stand up well to the demands of sloping.
