Robinhood 80 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 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. Old School Model Works has designed the fuselage with a built-in hatches so you have quick access to your fuel (or batteries) 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 would 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.
