Old School Model Works Trophy Racer Howard Pete Kit
Stunt'em, Fun-Fly'em or just have fun with'em
With our Trophy Racers, we've reached back in time to the Golden Era racers of the 20's and 30's, then merged those aircraft with a bit of 80's profile design, ending up with a series of models that are quick to build, and great flying designs.
From the start, we've designed our Trophy Racers to be a fun experience, and that includes the build. Everything to complete the airframe is included in the kit and it's all laser-cut to give you great fitting pieces that take the guesswork out of building.
The airframe is strong, sturdy and lightweight all at the same time. We've included laser-cut sheeting to aid in the wing, aileron and tail surface construction. Also included are the parts to quickly and accurately build up the set of wheel pants.
Use either glow or electric power in our Trophy Racers. We've designed the firewall so it can be built in one of two positions to aid in the balance of the model. And speaking of balance, we've also added a set of hidden hatches up-front in case you need to add an extra bit of weight for balance.
Behind the firewall is a large tray for quick and easy access to your fuel tank or lipo battery packs.
In the air, our Trophy Racers are quick and agile aircraft. Their short-coupled designs are aimed for more experienced pilots and will give plenty of performance whether you're racing them, doing some stunt flying or just cruising around for fun.
Radio: o 4 channel system o 4 standard servos for ailerons, elevator and rudder; o 1 mini servo for throttle (if using a glow engine)
Power: o Electric (.40 equivalent brushless motor, minimum 40amp ESC, 4S LiPo) o Glow (.40-.45 engine, 4-6 ounce tank, fuel tubing)
