Tech Notes
         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.
