The Robinhood 25's bigger brother, now better than ever.
The Robinhood 80 is based on the original kit marketed by World Engines in the 1980's, but we have updated it significantly to more closely resemble the Curtiss Robin built back in the 1920's.
While still a fun-scale design, it is easy to build and retains all of the great flying characteristics that make a good sport airplane. In the air, the Robinhood 80 is a true barnstormer and is at it's best when cruising on a lazy afternoon or performing some gentle aerobatics.
Power can be from 20cc gas, .90-1.50 glow or an equivalent electric setup. We've designed the fuselage with a built-in hatches so you have quick access to your fuel (or batteries) and and radio system.
All of the formers, ribs, tips and other specialty parts come laser-cut. These pieces are engineered to fit together with a minimum amount of tools and/or jigs to align properly them.
The fuselage can be built as an inline version (as shown) or with a slightly shorter nose if you're rather install your own radial engine for that classic look.
Utilizing our unique WEB-LOCK construction, you can build both wing panels straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss. Both wing panels are removable for easy transportation and storage, attaching to the fuselage with functional struts and a few bolts.
Included in each Old School Model Works kit are full-sized rolled plans, a printed construction manual, pre-bent main gear, hand-selected balsa and ply woods, and a premium hardware package from brand-name, USA manufacturers (DuBro, Sonic-Tronics, and others) to guarantee the best quality.
What's more is you can cover and finish your Robinhood 80 like you want, rather than being stuck with a "me-too" offering that look exactly the same as the others at your local field.

80 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.
Pre-Bent Main Gear
As is the case with all Old School Model Works' kits, pre-bent main gear is included.
WEB-LOCK Construction There's nothing else like it. Build our wings, straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss.
An 80" wing is a hassle to transport. So we've re-engineered the RH80 with plug-in wing panels. Upper and lower Hatches An upper hatch (for tank and throttle access) as well as a lower hatch (for radio access) are built-in.
Adding extra strength and scale looks, the RH80's struts are easy to make and quick to attach to the fuselage.
Additional items needed to complete the Robinhood 80 kit:
o Engine/Motor mount & mounting hardware
o Servo extensions and "Y" sharness (for ailerons)
o Pushrods (two 5" for ailerons, two 30" for elevator & rudder, one 12" for throttle if glow powered)
o Clevises for the pushrods (8 if electric, 10 if glow).
