The Olympic II (design from Lee Renaud) is arguably the most recognizable and popular RC sailplane of all time. The Olympic design was kitted by Airtronics for many years. It sparked many to get into the fun hobby of RC soaring. Even today, the "Oly" is still flown successfully in RES and Nostalgia competitions all over the word. It is a 100-inch high performance R/C standard class winner. It is easy to build, beautiful to look at and goes up in the lightest of lift.
The kit was originally designed to build fast and it still does. Sky Bench has improved on the design with laser cut parts for precision construction and internal construction improvments to add strength. We now include a one piece laser cut balsa fin that saves building time and makes a stronger tail section to better withstand a flip over landing. You can still make a built up fin if you prefer of course. Both the stab and rudder also have laser cut parts to save building time and create more accurate and stronger flying surfaces. The fuse top and bottom are now laser cut and this will also save building time. The fuselage has additional internal doublers to strength it for many years of use.
The wing leading edges are pre shaped and require minimal sanding, spoilers are optional, but installation is shown on the construction plan. All hardware to complete the model is furnished except the adhesives and covering materials. The 5/16" super strong wing rod joins the two wing halves and is a competition level design. Separate full-size plans are furnished and the building instructions have been updated and include photos to help you with building.
