The PC-6 Turbo Porter is noted for its Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any type of terrain, capable of taking off within a distance of 640 feet and landing within a distance of 427 feet while carrying a payload of 2,646 lbs. Thanks to its STOL performance, the PC-6 holds the world record for highest landing by a fixed-wing aircraft, at 18,865 feet (5,750 m), on the Dhaulagiri glacier in Nepal.

Due to these characteristics, they are frequently used to access short grass mountaintop airstrips in the highlands of Papua Province (Indonesia) and Papua New Guinea. The Porter was also manufactured under license in the United States during the early 1970s for operations during the Vietnam War. It received the designation AU-23A Peacemaker for service with the U.S. Air Force and UV-20 Chiricahua for service with the U.S. Army.

Our PC-6 a fully molded airframe made of rugged EPO foam. Arriving as a plug and fly model, the PC-6 can be prepared for flight in about an hour of work. It requires no glue to construct as it is all bolt or screw together design. The pre-installed 4212 700kv motor provides ample power for scale short take-offs and glider towing duty all on the very common 4S 14.8V 3000mAh lipo. Accessing that lipo is very easy through a hatch on the bottom of the airplane. No need to pull the wing off just to change packs. Though a sport scale model, the PC-6 features scale wing struts and its very recognizable wide set landing gear.

Flying the PC-6 is great; with its large wing it will float around nicely at slower speeds, but apply full throttle and jam the sticks in the corners and she comes alive. Takeoffs and landings are a breeze thanks to the steerable tail wheel and wide set main gear. Lower the flaps to really slow down for smooth, precise landings. Other great features are working LED lights, a glider release mechanism, and even a dropper door in the fuselage bottom for releasing candy, parachute men, or whatever!

This classic scale STOL model is available now. A small amount of work is all that is needed to make this classic ready to go!

Features:
• Plug and Fly - Just add radio sytem, battery and fly!
• Molded from rugged EPO foam
• All bolt together construction, no glue required

Looking for a  multi-rotor model that breaks all the rules?

The Reaper 500 is a fully 3D capable, collective pitch quadcopter that has set the new standard for aerobatic mutli-rotor aircraft. This is a high performance model capable of many 3D maneuvers such as loops, rolls, inverted flight, funnels and more!

The Reaper features a revolutionary frame design incorporating the use of a single motor power system to drive all four rotors. Power is transferred via a central shaft to internal drive belts in each boom. This makes for a very sleek and efficient drive system while minimizing the use of external moving parts.

The variable pitch rotor design of the Reaper 500 gives the pilot full control of both positive and negative pitch, very similar to 3D helicopter models. This opens up a whole new world of maneuvers which are simply not possible with traditional fixed pitch multi-rotor aircraft.

The Assault Reaper flight controller has been designed form the ground up specifically for use in this model, providing exceptional flight performance in a super simple and easy to use package. There are easy to access dials on the top of the control unit to allow for fine tuning of the flight characteristics of the model (no PC connection required for adjusting) such as increasing or decreasing the flip/roll rate and gyro gain.

This is the "Kit" version of the Reaper including the flight controller. You will need to assemble the model and add your own motor, ESC, servos and radio system. Please see required items below.

Features:
• Pre-tuned high performance flight controller
• Fully 3D capable - loops, rolls, inverted flight and more!
• Unique frame and drive system designed from the ground up
