The inspiration, the philosophy, and the story behind the Jart can be found on the Jart World Web page. Well worth a visit!

email from Julian Kent (aka minifly on RCGroups)
Just to let you know, I think I was the first person to complete a Jart in SA. My Jart flew at Hermanus 2006, and despite its extreme nose-heaviness and me pulling the spoilerons a moment early, managed to get a decent shot at the spot landing. Aragon got some video...I'm quite sure it's on RCGroups somewhere. It is now a very ugly, beat up Jart (I built it by layering wide-weave FG over EPS, with a balsa sheated EPS wing), so I'll probably give it a complete makeover one of these days.
