4 of 5 Smoothie electric June 28, 2020
Reviewer: Dennis from Pennsylvania  
It hasn't changed since 1979 when I built  your new offering.The wood is just as heavy but no Redwood anymore thankfully. The wing tips are still truly overbuilt and planing and sanding those tips is ludicrous in today's fast paced world. I simplified them and lightened the structure  to 4 lbs 3 oz. Replacement of wood, Consider going to 1/16 sheeting and making the stab and rudder as built up structures and lighter wood  It precluded my having to add nose weight,  Consider changing some of the structure to get rid of the blocks of wood.Covering is Ultrakote and it is of course electric powered and only will require a Cobra 25 with 3 cell 2600mah for power to exceed the performance of a stock 40.
Canopy was missing and I called for another one but I'm still waiting for it to finish the model. Still, it will bring back a lot of fond memories with that first one from long ago.

4 of 5 Good First Aerobatic Plane June 30, 2013
Reviewer: Bill Goldthorpe from Palos Hills, IL United States  
I built a Smoothie many years ago when I was in high school. Back then , 3D flying had not even been invented yet. Still, the Smoothie has a light wing loading and is capable of performing all the basic aerobatic maneuvers very nicely, even with an inexpensive engine such as a OS 40 LA. Unfortunately, my Smoothie ended one day when I pulled instead of pushing. Oh well, all good things must come to an end. Like all Balsa USA planes, this is a builders kit. If you like to build and want a basic sport model, the Smoothie is a good value.
