Overview

This big, beautiful recreation of Piper’s famous ag workhorse may look imposing, but it’s really a pushover. Even with its 130+ inch wingspan, near-perfect scale outline and details like working oleo struts and functional flaps, it’s no more of a challenge to assemble than many smaller ARFs. And, like the full-scale Pawnee, it’s one of the tamest tail draggers you’ll ever have the joy of flying. The generous wing area, stable flat-bottom airfoil and fiberglass wingtips forgive much while providing smooth, solid control at most any speed. Short field takeoffs and landings with flaps are a whole lot of fun too. If you’ve always wanted a giant-scale plane but were daunted by the complexity or performance, this easy-going 80cc ARF is for you.

Product Features
