Super Skybolt from Great Planes


The only things standing between the pilot and a first performance at the field are a few hours of fast, easy assembly. The Super Skybolt offers the elegance of yesteryear's air show greats with the ease that comes with Great Planes' best ARF engineering. Ready to take center stage in as little as 12-15 hours! Almost a full pound lighter than the kit, for stronger climbs and quicker response overall! Simplified strut design strengthens structures, speeds assembly and eliminates unsightly screw-down brackets! Fast, smooth and predictable in flight, with a long tail moment to ensure true tracking. Performs classic air show maneuvers with ease and grace just right for straight, level flight and impressive, low-level flybys!

There's no need to build: The airframe is built light, strong and straight. The covering is genuine Top Flite MonoKote. The hardware is generous and Great Planes' best. And the performance is everything an aerobat could want: crisp and precise in execution, silky smooth in transition and adept at making a pilot's best look better than ever.

Kit quality ARF ease! The Super Skybolt is built like the best kits, with a lightweight wood airframe, a four-color MonoKote trim scheme, painted fiberglass parts and Great Planes-brand hardware. The hardware and accessories package offers convenience, completeness and quality in the same package, and a gleaming aluminum spinner and steerable tailwheel assembly as bonuses.

The striking red and white checkerboard pattern on the bottom wing makes it easy to tell which way is up even at a distance!
They look like they took hours to complete, but the lightweight fiberglass cowl and wheel pants come out of the box painted, and ready for installation.
