Pilot photo

Great Planes captures "Golden Age" aviation's adventurous spirit in the SlowPoke's classic looks. It's sure to earn compliments at the flight line. Better still, the kit can be built in only a few weekends - and handles almost as easily as a trainer in flight!

  • Easy to build, with CAD-engineered, precisely interlocking, all-wood parts and photo-illustrated instructions

  • Generously sized radio compartment allows for easy receiver, battery and servo installation

  • Flies well using small, economical engines, which bolt onto a supplied plate—no additional mount required

  • Compact size is convenient to transport and well-suited for flying at small sites

SlowPoke flying photo
The polyhedral wing with its flat-bottom airfoil builds as three sections. It offers huge wing area-as much as some .60-size models-for a very light wing loading and impressive lifting power. As a result, the SlowPoke is slow, easy to fly and is great for small fields.
SlowPoke landing gear photo
The high-lift wing lets you slow to a crawl for an easy touchdown-then this wide-stance landing gear takes over. It makes ground handling extremely easy, whether you're returning your model to the flight line or taxiing for another takeoff.
SlowPoke wood-frame photo
The SlowPoke's lightweight, all-wood parts can be framed up quickly and easily. The kit includes full-size, computer-generated plans and photo-illustrated instructions.
