CESSNA 172 SKYHAWK - THE MOST POPULAR AIRCRAFT IN HISTORY

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high wing aircraft, first flown in 1955.

Over 40,000 Cessna 172s have been built - more than any other aircraft in history.

In 1958, a Cessna 172 set the world flight endurance record, which still stands today.

YOUR KIT

This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original Veron Tru-Flite Series model of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk.

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.

Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".

This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.

KIT CONTENTS

Balsa wood sheets with precise laser cut parts and strip wood.
One 150mm diameter plastic propeller.
One pre-bent motor hook and shaft.
One low friction plastic nose bushing for the propeller

Acetate sheet for canopy.

One motor peg.
F.A.I. 3/16" rubber motor strip.
Tissue to cover the model.
