WayFarer 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. We’re 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 Wayfarer is a 2-meter sailplane that can be flown on the slopes, via a high-start, or with electric motor-assist. Regardless of how you decide to takeoff, this easy-to-build glider is the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon.
Old School Model Works has gone the extra mile to ensure that the Wayfarer is as easy to build as it is to fly. There’s a wealth of laser-cut balsa and plywood parts that go together straight and true. Laser-cutting even extends to the wing sheeting giving you the perfect fit.
Utilizing the unique WEB-LOCK construction, you can build the wings, straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss. And because storage and transportation of a 2-meter long wing can be a hassle, the Wayfarer’s wing is built as 2 separate wing panels.
As a bonus, if you choose to go with motor-assisted takeoffs, Old School Model Works also included all the parts needed to make the removable power pod. Mounted to the pod, we recommend using an inexpensive 2204/2206 brushless motor with a 5” 2-bladed prop. To power the motor, use a standard 3s 2200mAh LiPo battery and a 25amp ESC.
Old School Model Works also designed the fuselage with a built-in hatch so you have quick access to swap out the flight battery.
Included in each Old School Model Works kit are full-sized rolled plans, a printed construction manual, 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 Wayfarer like you want, rather than being stuck with a "me-too" offering that look exactly the same as the others at your local field.
