Based off a 1980's classic, originally offered by World Engines.
The Robinhood is a fun-scale version of the Curtiss Robin built back in the 1920's Originally marketed through World Engines, this model retains all the good, clean looks of the original and retains all the great flying characteristics that make a good sport airplane.
In the air, the Robinhood 25 is a true barnstormer. Don't mistake this for a 3-D hovering machine and resist the urge to overpower it. The Robinhood 25 is at it's best when cruising on a lazy afternoon or performing some gentle aerobatics. Also, no problems with mown-grass runway takeoffs and landings.
If you want to go truly "old school", it can be built for simple 3-channel control (rudder, elevator and throttle). For even more control, the included ailerons can be made fully functional (4 channel control).
The Robinhood can be powered with either an electric or glow powerplant. We've designed the fuselage with a built-in hatch so you have quick access to either your batteries or fuel tank.
Struts were a necessity on the full-scale Curtiss Robin, but are optional for the Robinhood 25. Instructions are included on how to implement them if you'd like to give your Robinhood 25 a touch of Old-School elegance.
