1/4 Scale Stits Skybaby Biplane


Here's my "just finished" 1/4 scale, Stits Skybaby Biplane

26" Wing span!!! Built from a Mansell Models short kit. It was designed for electric (which is much more practical) but me being a "gas only" guy, it is powered by a massive, OS Max .32 two stroke!

The weight limit on the plans was 44 oz, and mine weighs in at 56 oz (with no fuel)! so it isn't looking too good for a flyer, but I didn't really build it to fly anyway, as I covered it in fabric (like the full size) and with all of the painting and such.......it's a little "Porky Pig"

Thanks to Callie Graphics for the artwork. They helped finish it off! It looks great hanging in my garage!

Thank you Gordon!
You would have a better chance of getting the real thing out of the National Air and Space Museum close to your place! At 7'2" wingspan it should be fairly easy to bring home!
