Bogie 72


The Bogie 72™ is the second plane in our Nostalgia line. We took our Little Bogie™ and redesigned it with a full 6 foot wingspan! Designed to bring back that nostalgic feeling of yesteryear, in a small field electric package. Taking inspiration from many different free flight planes of the past, we developed the 72 inch Bogie 72™, which resulted in a super lightweight, nostalgic, and relaxingly smooth flying plane.

The Bogie 72™ was designed using a state of the art 3D CAD package, to allow for exceptional interlocking parts design and fit. 3D design also allows us to provide clearer assembly images, without having to use photos.

The Bogie 72™ is built from self-jigging interlocking laser cut balsa and plywood parts. It's like a 3D jigsaw puzzle with instructions. Although not needed for building, full size plans are included for reference. If the instructions are read before hand and followed during the build, the Bogie 72™ can be built up and ready to fly in relatively few evenings.

Slow and gentle are the two best words to describe the flight characteristics of the Bogie 72™. We think that anyone who enjoys the look and easy to fly charactaristics of the "old timer" style models will thoroughly enjoy the Bogie 72™. The Bogie 72™ thermals very well, with its light wing loading and size, so those looking to throttle back and float around the sky, riding the currents will have no trouble doing so.

Powered by the Scorpion 2215-18 brushless outrunner, the Bogie 72 will climb vertically for rapid climb outs.

The Bogie 72™ features removable wing tips to make transportation in small vehicles easy.
