The Sky Streak is a balsa motorplane that can be easily assembled by just about anyone and can be flown either indoors or outside. Although the stock Sky Streak flies well, there are some special modifications you can make to really enhance flight performance.

Trimming for directional controllability allows for the model to not be cross-trimmed and to fly straight at all speeds. It also causes the plane to achieve predictable aileron response at these speeds. Atfer trimming is completed, your model will have balanced wings that will allow your plane to fly straight!

Aileron hinge-line leakage can cause many problems when flying a model. It causes loss of lift, adverse yaw and hampers roll control. This article explains how to seal the hinge gaps to prevent these issues.

This group project uses model aviation as a tool to inspire creativity and demonstrate the processes by which ideas become reality. It teaches the fundamentals of aerodynamics, aircraft design, construction and basic RC power/control systems. You will need the assistance of someone who is familiar with building model aircraft.
