A famous vintage performer, designed originally in the 1930's, the 80" Playboy Senior won many competitions, and broke a world record twice in 7 days.
Originally designed by Joe Elgin, and modified for RC by Paul Denson, our laser cut kit of this beauty will give you many enjoyable hours of building and flying. Stable enough to be a relaxing Sunday flyer, and it's under-cambered aerofoil making it a great performer in thermals.

The laser cut short kits include all of the shaped parts in balsa and ply which would normally require the builder to cut them from sheets. Items such as formers, wing ribs and other shaped pieces are all precisely laser cut. This leaves you to purchase only the sticks, spruce or balsa sheets you need to complete the kit, some of which you may already have on-hand.
All kits are proudly made in NZ! We hand select our wood stock for each kitset from the best Balsa Wood from Papua New Guinea and European Plywoods.
