Description Extended Information

This is the perfect remote control aircraft for AV (aerial video photography), parachute or bomb drops. The airframe has 4 large built in hatches, one on each side of the fuselage just below the wing and two on the bottom of the fuselage. The two on the sides measure 10 inches in length and 4 inches tall, the front hatch on the bottom is located just ahead of the main landing gear and measures 6 inches in length and 3 1/2 inches wide, the second bottom hatch is the same width but 10 inches long and is located just behind the main gear. The fuselage has plywood doublers for added strength around the hatch areas. If you think that this plane is too large to pack around for aerial video photography think again! The Two piece main wing uses a carbon fiber joining tube and can be removed or installed in just a few minutes, the two piece fuselage joins just behind the main wing with four Socket Head Cap Screws and can be assembled or disassembled in a very short time as well, you can actually transport this large plane in the trunk of your car! The 26cc AV R/C aircraft comes with all of the necessary hardware for completion including aluminum landing gear!

4 of 5 Nice big floater June 17, 2014
Reviewer: Bryan Wood from Boise, ID United States  
Everything arrived in great shape. There are no instructions at all, and really, none are needed. I did swap out the control rods and horns for 4-40 all thread and single bolt horns from Dubro. My only gripe is the tail wheel assembly. The hardware to hook it up really was not intuitive at all, so I opted to use a nose wheel horn to operate, and just ran a wire down from the rudder pushrod which made quick work of it. I installed a RCG 26cc which is rear intake and side exhaust, so it didn't line up with existing holes for the CRRC. First flight required about 6 clicks of down, no aileron or rudder. With a couple washers under the top motor stand offs, for down thrust, I think I can make the trim totally zero! I flies really nice, is as aerobatic as you can get with a big trainer, rudder acts like aileron, which isn't my favorite. I need to swap out the tires and put on Dubro 6" inflatables, the stock ones are too tiny.  Fun plane, Grab one when they are $149 and you won't go wrong!!

1 of 5 abell aerial vidio plane September 6, 2012
Reviewer: bill from indiana,usa  
glad i did not buy a second plane as they don't have any parts for this plane, not even the small parts, so if you need any parts, i mean any parts you have to buy a whole kit so don't waste your money on this one buy a plane that you can get parts for such as a tower arf or a great planes arf there are plenty of good planes out there that are just as good that you can buy parts for, and another thing it comes with abosutly no instructions what so ever

5 of 5 Good Trainer Plane July 8, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Saint Charles, MO United States  
This plane is as easy to fly as any 40 size trainer plane.
I put it together with a CRRC 26R and has all the power you would ever want or need. The plane takes off, flys and lands very easy.
