"Akcent-2" is a molded composite hand launch glider model made by Dmitriy Lomovtsev of LD-models in Russia. The model has several innovative features in addition to a sleek graceful design and a proven airfoil set (modified AG series from Mark Drela). The wing is molded with a CNC routed foam core inside a double layer fiberglass skin. A carbon grid ("disser") is layed under the skin for torsional stiffness. The foam core makes the wing very durable and repairable. The fuselage is a one-piece carbon molded affair with a 2.4G friendly fiberglass nose. The tail feathers are molded with CNC routed foam cores and a light layer of fiberglass. The stab is detachable and is mounted on a very clever and light tail mount with one plastic screw and two fixing pins. The model is designed for pull-spring control setup in the fuselage, but a pushrod setup can be used of course if desired. Pushrods, or strings and springs are not supplied with the kit and must be obtained separately by the builder.

The glider is designed for pilots of any level - from beginners to advanced pilots. Akcent-2 has been successfully used by pilots in Russia and the first few models have been flown in the USA and Europe with positive feedback.
