The Staggerwing is an American biplane introduced in 1932. With an atypical negative wing stagger, the lower wing is farther forward than the upper wing.
This kit was designed by Rich Weber, whose building and flying skill can only be surpassed by his modesty and generosity to the Flying Aces Club. We have but a single photograph of Rich's Staggerwing as he cradles the newly completed plane. It seems all he does is build, fly, and then watch it go OOS (Out of Sight). There are pictures of blue sky and Rich's confirmation that it is his plane going OOS, but that's all.
This Free Flight Rubber Powered kit includes a full-size rolled CAD drawn plan, building and flying instructions, laser cut balsa parts, hand-picked balsa sheet wood and strip wood, E-B propeller, EBM thrust bearing, FAI rubber motor, and Easy Built Lite yellow tissue with black LaserCal™ markings. To build this model you will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.
