Smoothie XL from Balsa USA


The Smoothie XL is the one of the best sport aerobatic planes on the market. With its 88-3/4" fully symmetrical wing, oversized control surfaces, and sleek aerodynamic shape, the Smoothie XL outperforms all the other 30cc sport kits available. Install a 20cc gas engine if you want a tame relaxing plane that will do loops, rolls and touch-and-goes all Sunday long. Install a 35cc if you want to "Unleash The Beast" stored within the Smoothie XL. The optional flaps allow the Smoothie XL to almost stop in the air.
The Smoothie XL is an enlarged version of our .40 sized Smoothie. This kit features a fully symmetrical wing. The fuselage utilizes a tabbed construction to aid in construction ease and speed up building time. The tail surfaces are built up and then sheeted for strength. The stringers on the turtle deck are angled so the covering touches just a point of the wood creating a unique, clean and attractive appearance.

In this case, do not hesitate to ask me to add it : You're not bothering me. Please be patient, depending on my workload, I may take a few days to work on your model and gather information.

I'm sometime asked to add a non flying model to this library but unfortunately, it's not the focus of this website
