Series / PD-01 DÉBUT Embryo by Gordon
Roberts (Laser Cut)
This DÉBUT is a competition flying embryo designed by Gordon Roberts
of the Cleveland Free Flight Society. It was declared plane of the
year by the National Free Flight Society in 2001. This is a modern
design kit of a winning embryo. It has a geodetic wing structure for
strength and lightness, and the wing is removable for easy transportation.
This kit is one of a new class of kits we call Pro Design. These kits
are for the serious competitor who wants to build a winning plane
without the hassle of working from scratch.

EBM thrust button, and
Easy Built Lite tissue in yellow and orange. You

"I just finished my DÉBUT embryo, what a cool plane. I plan to use
it at our Scale Staffel contests here in San Diego. I came up with
this way of popping up the stab to keep the tail light and to dethermalize
quick. One small piece of SuperSport [rubber] glued to the stab and the rudder
with the fuselage notched out at the leading edge of the stab. Keep
up the good work." - Bob Overcash
"Pictures of my finished model. First stick and tissue model I've built in 40 years. The kit was really nice -- a real pleasure.
