Novice and expert builders alike will appreciate the low cost, scale outlines and flying characteristics of the Park Scale Models© Whim SeriesTM line of micro/indoor aircraft. Simplified construction, low parts count and interlocking/self aligning design ensures building success even for the novice builder.
The Whim Series. kits are engineered to build fast! You can have your plane built and ready to fly in as little as 10-12 hours*. This means you get to spend less time building and more time flying. Plus, the "No Plans" construction means you can build virtually any time and any place you have a small flat, stable work surface! So you can build any time a "Whim" strikes you!
New pilots will appreciate the slow and stable flying characteristics. Durable all balsa construction and low weight help to minimize possible damage from flying mishaps. Should any damage occur, most repairs can be made in the field with some CA glue.
Experienced pilots will love doing up close low-n-slow fly-by's, shooting touch-n-go's and exploring the flight envelope with mild aerobatics like loops, spins and stall turns.
The hallmark of all Park Scale Models' designs has always been low total airframe cost and this extends to the Whim SeriesTM line of kits as well. Costs are kept low by utilizing low cost, conventional micro RC gear along with an innovative electronics tray that allows you to move the receiver and speed controller to any of the Whim Series. airframes in a matter of minutes.

A 23.25" span micro/indoor model of the P-51C.
The North American P-51 Mustang was the most advanced fighter in structure and aerodynamics of its day. Arguably the best combat plane of World War II, it was able to provide much needed long range bomber support and is felt to be the plane that gave the Allies final supremacy in the skies over Europe.
A 24.25" span micro/indoor model of the F4U fighter.
The Chance Vought F4U Corsair was the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II and served almost exclusively as a fighter-bomber throughout the Korean War. Some Japanese pilots regarded it as the most formidable American fighter of World War II, and the U.S. Navy counted an 11:1 kill ratio with the F4U Corsair. 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured by Vought, in 16 separate models, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history.
The Mini Drake is a micro seaplane based on the Drake designed by Ken Willard. This is a great little plane that will give you hours of enjoyment on or off the water - can be flown off grass if you don't have a lake.
