This is the perfect ready to fly RC plane and is built with a great attention to the detail of its appearance and performance.Even the pilots are sitting in an open cockpit on top of the passenger cabin like in the real F-121 Farman airplane.
Built using traditional balsa and plywood construction, the B-36 uses custom made retractable landing gear built by Robart’s Bob Walker. After years of operation, the B-36 has flown hundreds of flights at dozens of RC events.The airplane contains lots of detailed solutions for an easy build up.
