Announcing the second addition to the civilian scale lineup of beautiful, scale electric powered airplanes designed by Sky Greenawalt of Acme Aircraft.  Sky is a masterful airplane designer, and we are proud to have an exclusive arrangement to produce parts from his designs.  


The prototype model of this design was masterfully built by Sky himself, and as you can see, this kit can create a stunningly accurate scale masterpiece.


Construction is very straightforward, but it is intended for experienced builders.  Approximate construction time is 50-75 hours for building and finishing.  The helpful online build thread (linked above) is very helpful, as is the exhaustive 9 page instruction manual that is available below.  


You can download and review the manual, including a complete listing of additional materials that the builder will need to supply, by clicking the link below.
