This listing is for the complete kit of this newly reworked and unique version of Leon's original vintage 1941 design for the Banshee. This new design modifies several elements of the original with the conversion to three channel electric flight. The plans and instructions also provide the information necessary to build the model as a free-flight, and SAM legal model. There is a huge amount of information on the original Banshee and Leon's long career, including his many accomplishments and contributions to the modeling community. You can read Leon's autobiography on the AMA's website.
This new and modernized version of the Banshee began in the early 2000's in collaboration with Leon, resulting in the redesign to add both elevator and rudder control. The model was also modified to easily accept any number of modern electronics - including brushless electric motors for propulsion. The design was finalized with several structural changes to accommodate flight worthiness and stability - keeping radio control and electric propulsion in mind. We now have the sheet parts laser cut! The "tail feathers" for the new configuration use hinged rudder and elevators providing full RC capability.
Catch a thermal and cut the motor allowing very long flight times! This listing includes the new full sized plans, all the parts, the landing gear wire and brass LG tube section, push rods, screws, servo mount platform, motor mount firewall, control horns, hinges etc, etc... And all the sticks necessary to construct the model.
