The Slepcev Storch will fly at 20mph at full flap and 30% of power. Take off run into a 23mph wind is vertical with no forward roll.

Construction
Construction is 4130 chrome-moly steel tubing for the fuselage, rudder and elevator. Glasing is lexan with full aluminium wings. The main landing gear is made of 4130 tubing with travel of 10 inches.

All components are kept simple and are manufactured with the least amount of moving parts possible. Standard wheels are 800 x 6 x 6 with alloy rims for the Main Landing Gear and a standard Maule Tail Wheel. Brakes are standard hydraulic disk. All models have wing fuel tanks.
