Pete 'n Poke

Pete 'n Poke flying photoSlow 'n easy... with a touch of nostalgia.

Pilot photo

Modeled loosely on the 1920s-era, Model "A" Ford engine-powered Pietenpol Air Camper homebuilt and the popular Great Planes Slow Poke, the Pete 'n Poke kit offers smooth, slow flight with the potential to perform all basic aerobatics. Its versatility is matched by vintage aircraft looks - including easy-to-install cabane struts - for a distinctive "Sunday" model that's a treat to fly ANY day of the week.

  • Easy low-speed flight offers a relaxing change of pace from demanding sport planes.

  • Precisely interlocking wood parts and photo-illustrated instructions speed assembly - kit also includes decals for instrument panels and markings.

  • Long tail moment helps prevent ground loops - even inexperienced taildragger pilots can quickly master takeoffs and landings.

  • Separate hatches allow easy access to on-board radio gear and the fuel tank and lines.

Wing attachment at the flying field takes no time at all! Simply plug the decorative struts into pockets built into the fuselage and wing, and secure the wing to the center cabane structure using three bolts. The struts are automatically aligned and locked into place.
The Pete 'n Poke's flat-bottom wing offers aerobatic potential plus excellent low-speed flight characteristics. In a stall, the model loses very little altitude before recovering quickly. Dual aileron servos add precision and authority for crisp, impressive maneuvers, and provide the safety of a backup should one servo fail.

Its interlocking parts make the Pete 'n Poke take shape almost immediately, greatly reducing the amount of sanding and carving.
