KK SKYSTREAK 26
The KK Skystreak 26 is one of the longest selling, all time classic control line stunters, featuring "Knock Off", banded on wing (optional), for 0.75 - 1cc (.049 - .06cu.in) diesel and glow-plug motors. Very lightweight, traditional, straightforward construction, with unusual, but attractive, swept-back wing. An exciting stunter, but also exceptionally stable, particularly in inverted flight. All parts are precision laser-cut, for accurate construction.
A great first stunt control line model.
This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original KK Skystreak 26. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing. This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.
