OSMW Ghost Airplane Kit
When we designed the GHOST, we envisioned a trainer that could do more than the typical boring trainer. The GHOST needed to offer you the opportunity to train, advance, and even have fun - all with the same airframe.
An advanced trainer that's so much fun it's SPOOKY!
When we designed the GHOST, we envisioned a trainer that could do more than the typical boring trainer. The GHOST needed to offer you the opportunity to train, advance, and even have fun - all with the same airframe. And that's just what we've accomplished.
To start, the GHOST has been designed as an easy-to-build model with a wealth of laser-cut parts. Actually, most every part used in the GHOST's construction is already pre-cut for you out of hand-selected lite-ply and balsa woods.
The wing is a flat-bottomed airfoil which is a cinch to build using our exclusive laser-cut WEB-LOCK construction that not only gives you proper rib spacing, but also holds each rib at a true 90° to the building surface, without the need for additional tools.
The fuselage is also an easy build as we've engineered the fuselage sides with slots to lock in each former at the right spot - and angle. Also, we've integrated our Multi-Size Servo mounts into the fuselage sides which makes mounting the rudder, elevator, servos a breeze (and throttle - if using glow).
Power can come from either glow or electric powerplants and there's a large, magnetic, top hatch which gives you quick access to the batteries and/or fuel tank.
At first, the GHOST might appear to be just a Good Honest Old School Trainer. But as they say "Wait, there's more!".
Flaps are included - a first for an OSMW kit. These are quite effective and can slow the GHOST to a crawl in the air. Choose to install them during the initial build, or they can be added at any other time - even after you've flown the GHOST for a while!
The GHOST's tall and wide main gear makes taking off from paved or grass surfaces quite easy. Throttle up, and you'll find the GHOST takes to the air in a surprisingly short rollout.
At lower throttle settings, the GHOST is slow and stable in the air, making it easy for a new pilot to learn how to navigate the skies. Throttle up the GHOST a bit and you'll start to open up more capabilities, including some fun barnstorming. At even higher speeds, the GHOST can perform a surprising amount of aerobatics to wow the crowds.
And all of this with the same airframe that many would write off as "simply a trainer".
Even when the wind gets a bit gusty, the GHOST's smooth flying characteristics will give you the confidence you need. When it comes time to land, simply lower the throttle and gently glide down to the runway. Again, no surprises, which is just what you want in any design.
And after you've mastered flying the GHOST, add to it's capabilities by adding in one of our Fun Fly Bay kits (available separately). Once assembled, these kits will bolt up through the bottom of the GHOST's fuselage. Like the GHOSTS's flaps, these kits can be added (or swapped out) at any time - even after you've flown for a while.

Please Note: All of the Old School Model Works Kits on our website have a $5 Oversize Package surcharge included in the price shown. This will cover the additional shipping cost while still allowing you to choose our economical Flat Rate Shipping option. This makes the delivered cost of the kit the same as ordering it directly Old School Model Works.
We are sorry, but due to the size of the kits and high International shipping costs, we cannot ship them outside of the United States.
