An all around low-wing sport model based off a 1970's classic.
The Sky Ranger 40 is as much fun to build as it is to fly. Using updated design techniques and laser-cut precision, we've designed this kit so most any modeler can successfully assemble it in a short amount of time.
This all-around sport model's retro design looks great in the air and makes you look like an ace pilot. Loop it, roll it, spin it, snap it, and just have a great time flying it.
Power the Sky Ranger 40 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 LiPo batteries or fuel tank.
