This thread is old? Of course it is! Hell, my 'Bolt is a combination of two old airframes put together to make a whole new airframe! (Both old airframes were built in 1980!) It's a flying tank at 22 pounds but who cares? I know I promised a while back to put some pics of the newly refurbished airframe on here but I'm having problems with picture sizing. I'll see what I can do with the camera/computer this weekend and see if I can get 'em on here.

The plane looks Awesome!! Do you still have a set of plans for the Skybolt? Would you send me a digital copy of the plans if you do?

Here's a link to a thread that involves a Brisighella Skybolt. I built the plane with plans, cowl, and wheelpants I bought in the early 80's. I then bought a balsa bundle (just lumber). All this sat in my basement all this time, until I finally built it last fall and summer 2011. The plane is still going strong, despite its dubious and humble beginnings. I just bought a Spektrum DX8 with all the telemetry I can get, and am now installing it into the Skybolt. By the way, a lot of guys have noted the difficulty making the metal parts, especially the cabane. I used Solidworks 3D cad modeling software to make the cabane you see, and then the software flattened it into a pattern. It was very accurate.

Is anyone building the 26% Skybolt at this time? I had started mine back in the eighty's. Built the fuse, wings, stabs, rudder, elavator and have been hauling them around since then. I just got the etch to complete it. Dug out the yellowed plans and started back at it.
