Grasshopper Short Kit


Category: Tags: ,


The Grasshopper kit from Ace RC has been discontinued for many years.  The plan that came with the kit was a miniature print intended to give the builder a general idea of what to do.  A full size plan was not necessary because the kit had a pre built foam wing, and the fuselage was a tab-and-slot box that was easy to build without a full size reference.

The original Grasshopper wing was composed of a tapered wing panel on each side with a constant chord wing segment in the middle.  To build the balsa kit, you can refer to this balsa wing plan:

Total wingspan is 52.5″
