Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a Glow Powered, Radio Controlled, Wood Construction,
Pete-N-Poke Sport .40 Nostalgic Airplane.
For Intermediate Modeler/Fliers.

FEATURES

Modeled loosely on the 1920s-era, Model "A" Ford engine powered
Pietenpol Air Camper homebuilt, and the popular Great Planes
Slow Poke. This airplane offers smooth, slow flight with the
potential to perform all basic aerobatics. Even if the plane is in
a stall, it loses very little altitude before quickly recovering.
Easy low-speed flight offers a relaxing change of pace from
demanding sport planes.
Precisely interlocking wood parts and photo-illustrated instructions
speed assembly.
Wing attachment at the flying field takes very little time. Simply
plug the decorative struts into pockets built into the fuselage and
wing, and secure the wing to the center cabane structure using
three bolts. The struts are automatically aligned and locked
into place.
Long tail moment helps prevent ground loops, even inexperienced
taildragger pilots can quickly master takeoffs and landings.
Separate hatches located on the bottom front of fuselage, allow easy
access to on-board radio gear and the fuel tank.
Dual aileron servos add precision and authority for crisp,
impressive maneuvers.
Engine bolts onto a mounting plate with the proper right thrust angle
built-in so no separate mount is required.
Warranty: Great Planes Model Manufacturing Company guarantees this
kit free from defects in both materials and workmanship at date
of purchase.
