Additional Details


In 2016 we made a complete redesign of the Stevens AeroModel Squirt™ 400 exclusively for publication in balsabuilder Magazine. The balsabuilder version of this classic radio control, electric powered, model features a plans-built friendly laser-cut parts package and support for 1/2A fuel powered engines.

This laser-cut parts package is designed to augment the plans, published in Volume 1 | Issue 4 of balsabuilder magazine, and have been enhanced with numerous helpful interlocking building aids which greatly simplify the assembly process. Unlike the laser-engineered Stevens AeroModel design, the balsabuilder version of this iconic model was developed to satisfy those seeking a more traditional model building experience. Construction of balsabuilder designs therefore favor the use of a building board and t-pins. This more traditional build will reward the hobbyist with a deligtfully strong airframe featuring clean lines and beautiful open “stick” frame work to enjoy.

This product has been designed for 1/2A fuel powered model aircraft engines but is suitable for coversion to Speed 400 electric power.
