The Skull Bandit

The Skull Bandit is the combination of the best design elements of Open “B” class radio control combat airplanes in the spring of 2002.  The Bandit also works for "Limited B" class combat. The Bandit utilizes the Selig airfoil and a profile fuselage created from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).  The components of the fuselage are CNC routed, and then the finishing touches are hand crafted and inspected.  It’s unique, and we think very attractive shape combine form and function.  The fuselage hump over the wing which we call the “launch handle”, serves not only as a place to hold for hand launching but securely locks the wing into the fuselage.  The fuselage is only as thick or wide as is needed to survive even the worst strikes and crashes.

Specifications:

Wing span 64"

Fuselage length 25.5"

Engine size .25 - .30

weight approx. 3 lbs 5 oz.

GoDevil Combat Aircraft





A splitting maul also known as a block buster, block splitter, sledge axe, go-devil or hamaxe is a heavy, long-handled axe used for splitting a piece of wood along its grain. One side of its head is like a sledgehammer, and the other side is like an axe.

What I s a Go-Devil?

For those who do not know what a Go-Devil is, a Go-Devil is a tool!....A tool for splitting wood!. (see photo to right)

What does a tool for splitting wood have to do with a combat aircraft?


Ironically, not long after the debut of the Go-devil in 2003, The aircraft  flew right through another aircraft splitting it into , thus giving it it's name....A combination of a sledge hammer and an Ax,  What a great combination!


​The name stuck that day and the tradition continues....an Airplane splitting tool, with the kindest intentions of corse . It  provides you the opportunity to fight on and fly on.


So if you are interested in gaining the edge on your fellow combatant, you will want a GoDevil in your hangar.


This pursuit vehicle is for the aggressive combat flyer who likes to track down their prey with tight turning, quick-on - the - sticks maneuvers . 


Patrol the skies at your flying field like the bloody Red Barron!
