(1 customer review)

From: $279.00

The Stevens AeroModel designed SkyBoy™ (600) is a super-sized park and slow flyer that effortlessly grooves through moderate turbulence and winds with ease. The wondrously fat low aspect ratio wing, full house controls, and cartoon character will turn plenty of heads a the flying field. SkyBoy pilots will enjoy the excellent handling, glide, and wind penetration of the design – barn door ailerons improve crosswind handling and allow for a host of sport aerobatics and other wild airborne antics. The SkyBoy is produced in accordance with the exacting standards of Stevens AeroModel’s quick build laser-cut kit format – as enjoyable to build as it is to fly!

1 review for SkyBoy (600) Slow Flyer

  1. Mark Nye (verified owner)

    The SkyBoy 600 was my second kit from Stevens Aeromodel. Like the first (Sky Buggy 300) and the Swift 100 which I have subsequently built, the kit and instructions were exceptional. The plane, which framed up quickly and easily, was a joy to build. I equipped the SkyBoy with the specified BL .10e motor and APC 10x5E prop but opted for the 45A Avian Smart ESC so I could receive engine and Smart battery telemetry through an AR637T receiver. Depending on how I fly, I get between 6.5 and 10 minutes on a 3S2200 battery before it is down to storage voltage. Maximum current draw is 32 amps. It is a very stable and forgiving slow flyer that can easily be flown by a beginner. A more advanced operator would have no problem keeping this plane within the confines of half of a soccer field, although I would not recommend flying from grass because the plane sits very low, and the aileron servos could be damaged. From a hard surface, the plane takes off and lands in five feet. It will never win any competitions, but it is still a fun acro flyer with a high pitch rate but low roll rate. You can even coax a knife edge out of it at top speed. The best aspect of the SkyBoy is its appearance. Every time I fly it, this plane attracts a lot of attention at the club. Especially when I announce that I am making a high speed pass, then fly by a walking speed.
