An all-around classic that flies as great as it looks.

An all-around classic that flies as great as it looks.


Imagine an easy-to-build kit that has outstanding high-speed performance as well as dependable low speed stability. Now imagine it in a great looking design and you’ve just described our Javelin.

Bolt on a .25-sized engine and enjoy gentle flying and barnstorming. max it out with a .51-sized engine and tear up the skies with high-performance aerobatics.

All of this comes in a great looking design that is remarkably easy to build, thanks to our innovative design techniques and precision laser cut parts.


Because of the interlocking design and high quality laser cutting of the parts, the Javelin is a quick build. Not only does it build quick, but it also builds straight and true as all of the parts were designed to align properly with a minimum of fuss and alignment tools.

The Javelin utilizes a first for OSMW kits - a built-up main gear box. This is extremely strong, yet lightweight at the same time.

The wing is removable giving access to the extra large cabin area. From there you have easy access to install most any brand of radio and control linkages.

Up-front, we’ve designed in a large hatch that covers the spacious battery/tank compartment. This area will easily handle larger 4s packs and 12 ounce tanks.

Our Javelin was reviewed by Fitz Walker in Model Aviation magazine. Check out his video report below...


Whether you choose to power your Javelin with electric or glow power, we’ve got you covered. The firewall comes pre-etched with markings to aid in the mounting of the included motor mount. Glow engines can be mounted upright, side, or even inverted with little modification necessary.
