Park Scale Model's mission has been to provide high quality, easy to build laser cut model kits at an affordable price. PSM owner Zeke Brubaker has a design philosophy that all models should be easy to construct for anyone with basic modeling skills, use low cost components, excellent flight characteristics, maintain scale outlines where possible, and incorporate scale detail.
All Park Scale Models designs are developed using state of the art 3D CAD modeling software and feature interlocking parts to ensure precise fit and alignment with no need to build over plans. Every kit is produced in the USA using high quality, hand selected wood from Balsa USA.
Novice and expert builders alike will appreciate the low cost, scale outlines and flying characteristics of the Park Scale Models© Whim Series™ aircraft. Simplified construction, low parts count and interlocking/self aligning design ensures building success even for the novice builder.
The Whim Series™ kits are engineered to build fast! You can have your plane built and ready to fly in as little as 10-12 hours. This means you get to spend less time building and more time flying. Plus, the "No Plans" construction means you can build virtually any time and any place you have a small flat, stable work surface! So you can build any time a "Whim" strikes you!
New pilots will appreciate the slow and stable flying characteristics. Durable all balsa construction and low weight help to minimize possible damage from flying mishaps. Should any damage occur, most repairs can be made in the field with some CA glue.
Experienced pilots will love doing up close low-n-slow fly-by's, shooting touch-n-go's and exploring the flight envelope with mild aerobatics like loops, spins and stall turns.
The hallmark of all Park Scale Models© designs has always been low total airframe cost and this extends to the Whim Series™ line of kits as well. Costs are kept low by utilizing low cost, conventional micro RC gear along with an innovative electronics tray that allows you to move the receiver and speed controller to any of the Whim Series™ airframes in a matter of minutes.
• Quick Build Kit - Designed to build without the need for plans

This was my first balsa build. It was fun to build. I used a turnigy 1811 200kv with a 6x5 sf prop. and plush 6a with 3.7g servos, mirco lite covering it finished at 3oz without batt. Smallest battery I had was 500mah so I put it in the air at 4oz, I only made a few circles trimmed it slightly and brought it down. Seems to fly good despite the extra weight, Im sure it will fly great on lighter betties.These are leaps and bounds above the other HK balsa kits. The instructions are great, the balsa is top quality, and the cuts are perfect.Good quality materials, laser cutting was well done and easy to follow instructions. It was a pleasure to build and the finished product looks quite nice.
