Description

  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.
