Your Dad raved about it. So did your Uncle, your Grandpa, and most of the members in your club.

Now you can experience one for yourself.

Since the early 1970’s, more of these have been built and flown than almost any other R/C design. It’s an all-time favorite R/C trainer and sport design. It’s fondly remembered because it’s so easy to build and too gentle to fly.

OSMW version of the Fifty Six keeps all the iconic look and great flying characteristics, and introduces new, simplified building features, as well as laser-cut precision – making this all-time favorite even better.
