37" AESOP (Popsie)

A lovely old timer for electric power and 3ch R/C, inspired by Vic Smeeds 'Popsie' design and built more or less traditionally out of sticks and formers. Cute as a button and easy to build and fly- it's tough too. 


  • Wingspan: 37"
  • AUW: 20oz/566g
  • Wing area: 250 sq inches,
  • Estimated stall speed: <16mph
  • Top speed: 35mph
  • Rate of climb: 600fpm
  • Manufacturer: Vintage 1
  • Designer: Vic Smeed
  • Difficulty: Intermediate


This reliable and sturdy kit contains fully cut laser parts. Described on RCgroups.com as the "aeromodeling equivalent of a bumble bee", this kit is fun to build and fly as an electric sports model. It needs covering, spinner plus of course servos, motor, gearbox and radio equipment and flight pack. The prototype has bags of power on a geared speed 400 on a 3s LIPO 1100 pack, but a lowish KV outrunner (900 for 3s, 1300 for 2s) in the 70W area will also fly it perfectly.
