            The Clipwing Taylorcraft is a terrific little aerobatic Scale Park Flyer for those with a flair for a less then mainstream scale model. The T-craft is fully aerobatic, and can be easily flown in smaller venues. The model requires intermediate building skills, with a bit of “stick framing” experience helpful. The model is of all wood construction with a blue foam nose bowl and wingtip blocks.

 

            Flying the T-Craft requires intermediate flying skills, and would make a terrific first “Scale Aerobat”.

 

            The Short Kit contains 1 highly detailed 36” X 48” plan sheet with a parts I.D sheet provided, and 4 laser cut (3 balsa 1 plywood) sheets. Patterns are also provided for the windshield and rudder bowing template.
