Great Planes® Super Skybolt ARF

Ready for show time in no time!

Factory-applied film and painted fiberglass parts give the Super Skybolt ARF the easy glamour of an old-time aerobatic great. And since it arrives prebuilt with Great Planes hardware, you can be wowing the crowd in a matter of hours.
Nearly a pound lighter than the original kit, the Super Skybolt ARF flies like it assembles: FAST! Less mass to move means higher speeds and quicker response, so it’s a hit with a .60, a powerful performer with a 4-stroke .91 — and requires only standard servos!
It’s a blend of true bipe appearance and superior single-wing performance, all in one easy-to-handle star. Pick a point in the sky, and the Super Skybolt ARF will hit it. Send it through a maneuver — and its long tail moment ensures on-rails tracking. Ask it for the moon — and it will make YOU the star.
