here! The Shrike is back and
better than ever!
The Shrike was
by Harris Nelson and is an
outstanding pitcheron design. We
have made some improvements
while not abandoning the
original design features. One of
the biggest improvements is the
fuselage quality (on kits II and
III...see below). We have had a
new mold produced by one of
the best composite builder in
the USA with European-like
seamwork and painted in the mold
finishing. Everything is 2.4GHZ
friendly. You can feel patriotic
knowing that all parts to this
kit have been made in the USA.
Check out the options below.
The Shrike is one of the quickest pitcheron race rockets on the slope. It can out turn just about any of the current crop of molded racers and will beat many of them on the straight aways, yet it is a joy to just fun fly. If you like fast roll rates, this is the plane for you. It’s just
simply one of the most fun planes out there.
The Shrike makes a perfect “take along” airplane. It can easily fit into a small rifle case or even an arrow case, which could be placed in an airline overhead compartment.
The Shrike can fly in light lift but really comes alive when the wind is blowing.
A computer radio with elevon mixing is the perfect choice to fly the Shrike but you could use a simple two-channel single stick radio with an optional mixer. All it takes is two channels. The wing does all the work. The tail does not move.

If you are a Shrike owner and would like to send in photos, we will post them on our Shrike Owners page. This is a great resource for new kit owners as well. The variety of color schemes is great!
