Sky Bird from Sky Bench Aerotech


The Sky Bird will absolutely delight you, both in the ease of construction and it's superb flying performance. After many test flights in various weather conditions the Sky Bird is an absolute winner.  We suggest using a five cell Rx battery because you are going to be up a long time!  A novice pilot will be able to have very long flights and land it easily. This is a gentle flying big RES sailplane that is very responsive to rudder without dropping a wing tip. You can horse it around like it is a hand launch to stay in the smallest thermal and you will marvel at the extremely flat glide that will allow you to cover large areas looking for lift.

The Sky Bench Bird Series kits have a very good reputation in flight performance and kit quality, all hardware is included, if you want something extra special to build and fly then one of the Bird Series kits will work for you.  E-Powered Notice: The rear wing rod is not used if you install an Electric Motor. Kit is $10.00 less if shipped without rear wing rod and brass tubes.
