New Product
The Poky 40 fully molded flying wing

Hey Guys,

Thought I would let you know about a new product we are bringing in. It is a fully molded flying wing. The Poky is a blast to fly it has a very wide speed range while keeping the flight characteristics very friendly. It comes in a normal carbon layup and a spread tow for DS. Take a look: http://www.skipmillermodels.com/Prod...ctCode=Poky_40

That looks pretty cool. Any longer wing span versions lurking around the corner?

Poky 40

I orderd mine
I thought it would be really fun to DS this little plane in some smaller tighter grooves
I can also always have it with me in the car,,Im sure it will fit right above my mirror with the 2 sun visors holding it in place

This little thing looks great! Just wondering how stout it really is? Will it be able to withstand those fast missile type landing.

?? I guess I'll find out,,I imagine it also depends on how heavy it is when flown..I'm sure if its built light it will land slow. I plan on using nylon bolts to hold the wing on just in case of a hard landing.

I'll post flight reports after I fly the new plane too.

$429 for the spread tow lay up, maybe the regular will hold up to light DS. Let us know how it goes Nick.

Yes I think the spread tow is overkill..I'll be pushing the standard lay-up for all it's worth..I find that on a plane as small as 40" a standard lay-up seems to hold up fine for DS'ing JMHO

Poky's are in

I picked up my Poky today
It sure is a nice clean molded plank.
I'm sure it will be a blast to fly,Just got to get it loaded with gear now.

I just don't know why there aren't more molded planks out there,,maybe there will be soon
