I scratch built this School Boy designed by Ken Willard in 1961. Every since I first read about this plane I always wanted to build one. It fly's very well. Easy but responsive. The in flight photo has me in the back ground flying it.

Here's a plan and a construction article for the School Boy from 1962. The technology sure has changed since then.

Bob Kopski's Skyvolt. My longest lasting, most fun electric airplane. Needs a new wing built...currently wearing a wing from a crashed Soprt-E-Stick. Flies nearly the same but I miss my flag scheme

We have a new, in the box, 1960 kit.

It will be an electric CL with radio control on the throttle only.

I didn't build it, just converted it, but I have this Ace 4-120 Biplane. I'm led to believe it's rather old, but I have no idea how old.

The best us younger folks can do is build from plans since we were not old enough to build them when they were first kitted/in-print.

Here is my 1/2 size Smeed Courtesan.
