Old School Model Works Comet Kit

Old School Model Works Comet Kit

Swept Back. Forward Thinking. Retro Goodness.

Our Comet captures all of the jet-age looks and excitement of the sleek 1950's design it's based on.
With the included jigs, this delta wing can easily be built by those with experience in constructing built-up kits. Please note that this is NOT a beginner's kit - it requires building and flying experience to be successful.

Flying the Comet is a blast. It's not overly quick and has pleasing flight characteristics that make it fun to fly. Even at low speeds it is well behaved and has no surprising tendencies. The Comet can be powered with either an electric or glow powerplant. We've designed the fuselage with built-in hatches so you have quick access to either your batteries, fuel tank & radio system.

Wingspan: 39.5 inches
Wing Area: 470 square inches
Length (airframe only): 32 inches
Weight: 3 - 3.5 pounds
o 4 channel system (with elevon mixing)
o 3, 40-70 in./oz. servos for elevons and rudder;
o 1, 40-70 in./oz. servo for throttle (if using a glow engine)
o Electric: .25-sized brushless motor, 60amp esc, 3s lipo
o Glow (.19-.30 engine, 4 ounce tank, fuel tubing)
Features of the Comet
A Retro, Delta Wing
Flying the Comet is a blast. It gives jet-like looks and stability without being overwhelmingly fast. Stability at all speeds make it easy to fly and easy to land.
WEB-LOCK Construction There's nothing else like it. Build our wings, straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss.
Premium USA Hardware
Included in each Old School Model Works kit is a premium hardware package. We only source our hardware from brand-name, USA manufacturers to guarantee the best quality.
Rugged Landing Gear
We include sturdy, pre-bent main gear, steerable nose gear assembly, and wheel collars. The 1/8" diameter wire can absorb quite a bit of abuse for those no-so-good landings.
Bottom hatch Held in place with thumbscrew, this hatch gives you easy access to batteries or fuel.
Also included is a clear, pre-formed plastic canopy.
Additional items needed to complete the Comet kit:
o 4 channel radio and servos (elevon mixing is needed, so a radio with mixing is needed)
o Propeller
o Engine/Motor mount & mounting hardware
o Pushrods (two 5" for elevons, one 18" for rudder, one 12" for throttle if glow powered)
o Clevises for the pushrods (6 if electric, 8 if glow).
o Three 3" diameter main wheels
o Covering

Due to high demand, please allow 1-2 weeks for shipment, thank you!
