The Super Chipmunk is a great looking sport model that is designed to take up to a powerful 0.60 glow engine. The durable composite fuselage is nicely made and not too thick, the paint finish is excellent as is the superbly applied covering. The removable one peice wing is balsa, as are the tailfeathers, which helps to prevent the usual tail heavy tendency often associated with scale fibreglass models. As well as a quality and comprehensive hardware package, the Chippy also comes with a fuel tank & fittings, engine mount and a nicely finished glassfiber cowl and wheel pants.
Despite the composite construction, flying weight is not excessive, this model is the perfect sport scale aerobatic flyer and the attractive, bright colour scheme is great for orientation as well as being a nice representation of this great looking aircraft. The Super Chipmunk is practical and very, very durable, treated well, this very attractive Super Chippy will look good for years to come, the perfect sport scale model!

Overall quality of hardware is good except fuel tank which has split, and beware the clunk fuel tubing disintigrates very quickly - do not use .
Beautiful model and flies superbly!I don't know what you guys are going on about It is a semi scale model of Art Schols super chipy. I just finished building ,looks great.Sure the manual on CD is for a earlier version with one aileron servo but any one with building experience should have have no trouble working it out.The only trouble I had was mounting the tail wheel to have it steerable.. and the main wheels were somewhat difficult to mount in the spats but doable .the power I chose was a 60 Enya 4 stroke,fits in nicely without having to chop the cowl around to much .Any one with some experience should have no trouble.But operate on short grass.got this from hobbyking's ebay store. excellent fiberglass work and no loose covering. i built mine as an electric. used a turnigy 4238, 50 amp esc, 4s 3300 batt and a 13x6 prop. power enough for loops, rolls and decent top speed. take offs and landings are easy. that's the good stuff. minuses are no manual (have fun with the tailwheel assy) and the tailfeather mounting method is less than desirable. if going electric dont skimp on making the motor mount as hefty as you can, you'll need the weight to achieve cg, which for me ended up at 4" back from the leading edge. have fun with this one, i did.This plane is great. I have a 15cc petrol in it. It flys fast and very acrobatic. Money well spent. I love flying it.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nTv6MIzuCM&list=UU3o-m-p-NtSpNm5nuFgOBww&index=1&feature=plcpI received this plane 23- 12- 2011 the wings are damaged . I placed a claim, claim accepted , new wings ordered from there supplier. 6 MONTHS LATER STILL WAITING. Hobbykings warranty service is professional, fair and fast ? Will advise ( when they arrive ) how good this plane is .very nice plane.... well build.... the only issue is the manual on cd (cool) but missing alote of infos
