Bison XT STOL from Skynetic


The Skynetic Bison XT STOL is one of our most versatile and fun to fly RC airplanes. Its large wingspan, high-wing configuration, and durable metal landing gear capture the essence of a full size Short Take Off and Landing ("STOL") aircraft. The Bison XT's versatile powerplant and two included propeller options handle gentle scale flying up to advanced aerobatics with ease. Slotted flaps and functional leading edge slats enable impressively short takeoffs! Advanced FPV flyers looking for a scale aircraft to fly in "First Person View" will enjoy the Bison's clear molded plastic windows and spacious cabin, which has been arranged to accept common aftermarket Pan-And-Tilt camera mounts.

The Bison XT's large inflatable all-terrain tires are perfect for grass, dirt or pavement. An air pump with standard size nozzle is required to tune your Bison's main wheels' firmness to best suit your preferred landing surface conditions, from sand, to gravel, to grass, to pavement. 


  • Durable EPO and high wing planform that is accessible to all pilots
  • Ruggedly durable landing gear to endure STOL-style takeoffs and landings
  • Optional float set with rudders (sold separately)
  • Functional flaps and leading edge slats added for quicker takeoffs and slower landings
  • Inflatable giant all-terrain tires for various terrain use
  • Two different propellers are included depending on your flying style and battery availability
  • LED navigational lighting for those dusk or dawn sorties
  • FPV-ready cockpit, plenty of room to add your chosen FPV gear
  • Easy to remove wing and tail section makes transport a breeze
  • Recommended Center of Gravity ("CG") starting point: 57mm behind leading edge of main wing
