Minuette from Old School Model Works


The Minuette is designed to mimic the look and feel of those wonderful Edwardian flying machines that were flown by those magnificent men.
Building the wing is a snap as all of the ribs are laser-cut as part of our WEB-LOCK construction for proper alignment with minimum fuss.

If you want to go truly "old school", it can be built for simple 3-channel control (rudder, elevator and throttle). For even more control, the included ailerons can be made fully functional (4 channel control).

Although power can come from glow or electric powerplants, a simple 3s electric setup is really what the Minuette is designed around. We've created the fuselage with a huge top hatch so you have quick access batteries, radio, and it also hides the wing-bolts.

In the air, the Minuette is a simple, easy-to-fly cruising aircraft. Takeoffs are in just a few feet, even from grass runways. Once airborne, relax and gently glide her through the air through a series of low-passes, gentle turns, and even horizontal figure eights. With a 3200mAh battery, you can easily achieve 10+ minute flights with plenty of battery left for some touch-and-go's before landing.

The Minuette can even handle a bit of light wind without too much problem, and she is at her best taking off and landing into those gentle winds, if possible.
