Folkerts SK-4

100k Hedero  1.9 years ago

Inspired to build after seeing BogdanX's Payen racer and accidentally finding a blueprint for this lol.





Brief History

[Sorry for the lack of information on this aircraft. It's very rare. And that little sentence of info was for the SK-3, not the SK-4 like the one I built. But both aircraft share almost identical features and are extremely similar.]

The Folkerts SK-3 a.k.a. "Jupiter, Pride of Lemont was the third in a series of air racers developed by Clayton Folkerts.

    @Hedero Nah, it’s no big deal. I’m always scrolling through the airplanes, so if someone tags me on something, I’ll find it eventually.

    Yeah, I think I know what you mean. Like when you go too slow or something then the airplane throws itself upward a little?@ACEPILOT109
