Maxford USA PT-17 Stearman EP 50" Wingspan ARTF
The PT-17 is a biplane that was used as a military trainer by the US Army Air Corpse during the 1930s and it served throughout WWII. The PT-17 is also widely known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman, Boeing Model 75, or the Kaydet. At least 9,783 were built and thousands of surplus PT-17s were sold on the civil market after the conflict.
This almost ready to fly radio control version of the PT-17 is based on the aircraft that is owned by John Mohr.
V1.1 improvements to Maxford USA's ARF PT-17 Stearman:
Landing gear fairings are a new 2-piece 'split' design; these fairings can now be replaced separately from the aluminum main landing gear strut; Wing wires have been upgraded to steel cables; windshields are now thicker and have a darker-color for the simulated frames; tail wheel strut is now simpler to install; wing tips have been strengthened; and wood has been added to the cockpit hatches to simplify installing optional pilot figures.
- The fuselage, wings and empennage are factory-built from laser-cut balsa and light plywood.
- The 'oversized' magnetic hatch is big enough for easy access to all fuselage-mounted components.
- A dummy radial engine and a pair of scale windshields are included.
- Plastic leggings cover the aluminum main landing gear for true-to-scale looks; wheels have
- treaded tires.
- The included steerable tail wheel also has a true-to-scale appearance.
