Designed by Jesse Anglin of Hendersonville, North Carolina, the single-seat Spacewalker captures the classic lines of what many consider to be aviation's 'Golden Age' - the 1930's. With its modern construction and powered by a 65 hp Continental flat-four engine the aircraft first flew in 1986.
The Spacewalker, with its fabric covered wooden wings, welded steel tube fuselage and wire braced tail unit the Spacewalker continues to appeal to home-builders everywhere.
Our Spacewalker is 1580mm span, making it approximately 1:5 scale and is a laser cut balsa kit for modellers that enjoy crafting their models the traditional way, savouring the time taken to build a model from a kit, but with the bonus of having had all of the balsa and plywood parts intricately laser cut for you.
A few modern touches have been incorporated into this kit to make life easier and make a stronger model, such as a fiberglass cowl and wheel pants to give maximum strength and durability as well as allowing you to get the model into the air quickly.
A comprehensive hardware pack is included, as is a welded wire undercarriage, scale sized wheels, sprung tail wheel and aluminum control horns.
The interlocking nature of the kit parts dispense with the need for a plan and require only a flat building board to produce a straight and true airframe.
Basic, 4 channel radio is all that is required to fly the Spacewalker which, like its full-sized counterpart is a pure pleasure to fly.
Power requirements for the model are quite modest, a 3548 900kv outrunner turning a 10" propeller will be more than adequate on a 3 ~ 4 cell LiPoly pack. Alternatively, the model can be built for IC power using a 0.40 ~ 0.50 (6.5 ~ 8cc) class nitro engine glow or gas engine mounted within the cowling.
Why not give building-your-own a try with this hassle-free quick building kit that captures the spirit of 'Golden Era' aviation with the simplicity of modern design?
