Chris Foss Phase 6

Phase 6Designed by UK designer and competition pilot Chris Foss, the Phase 6 is the last in a long line of successful models designed for slope soaring aerobatics.

The Phase 6 rapidly became very popular through the quality of the kit and flying performance. It was also helped by the smooth looks, in particular the delicately raked fin, this being a feature of all Chris Foss designs.

Phase 6 TailThe model is supplied in two versions. The Sport has an E205 wing which has a good light wind performance, but limited ability inverted. For proper aerobatics the Professional version with the fully symmetrical wing is preferable.

Construction is balsa/ply fuselage and foam/obechi veneer wings.

The Phase 6 is still in production after approximately twelve years.
