Mambo RC Airplane Kit from Old School Model Works
FREE SHIPPING *Shipped directly from manufacturer, only to USA*
We’re introducing the latest in Old School Model Works line of kits that you can not only build and fly successfully, but personalize them to your own taste. Old School Model Works is continuing to bring back great designs from the past and rework them to incorporate modern, laser-cut techniques to make kit building better than ever. All of Old School Model Works kits are made right here in the USA.
The Mambo is different than any of Old School Model Works other kits in the fact that it’s engineered from the get-go to be easy to build for the first time builder. Now don’t confuse this with a trainer model, but rather it’s aimed at modelers who are bored with their RTF trainer, or maybe those who have been flying for years and are looking to build a kit for the first time.
Using precision, laser-cut, interlocking parts along with the unique WEB-LOCK construction and built-in alignment jigs, the Mambo can be built straight and true - using a minimum parts count and a minimum amount of fuss.
Included in each Mambo kit are full-sized rolled plans, a printed construction manual, pre-bent main gear, and a premium hardware package from brand-name, USA manufacturers (DuBro, Sonic-Tronics, and others) to guarantee the best quality. Also included is a clear, pre-formed plastic canopy.
Power can be from either electric or glow. The fuselage has a large, built-in hatch, securely held in place with magnets giving you quick access to either your batteries or fuel tank.
Also, Old School Model Works designed it to readily accept the powerplant, radio and other accessories from several popular RTF trainers, such as Horizon’s Apprentice 15e. Simply remove their motor, ESC and radio from that kit and it an easily be used with the Mambo.
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.
What’s more is you can cover and finish your Mambo like you want, rather than being stuck with a "me-too" offering that look exactly the same as the others at your local field.
Whether you like gentle cruising, or prefer to tear up the sky, the Mambo’s wide flight envelope makes it a blast to fly!
