RGRA1109B: Beechcraft D17 Staggerwing

The Beechcraft Model D17 "Staggerwing" provides smooth, capable flight performance (either indoors or outdoors in light winds) that's ideal for experienced pilots due to extremely light wing-loading. This model faithfully captures the character of the original D17 with scale features that include a highly-detailed radial engine, a symmetrical airfoil wing design with rib details, flying wires, an authentic scale trim scheme, flaps, and a retractable undercarriage (landing gear). For sport pilots, the Beech now includesthe PASS (Pilot Assist Stability Software) system which allows the performance envelope of the airplane to expand with your flying skills. The PASS system is controlled by a convenient 3-position transmitter switch, allowing for in-flight selection between Full Assist, Partial Assist, and No Assist (system off). Full Assist limits the degree of banking during flight and provides maximum stability for smooth, coordinated turns. Partial Assist allows for more aggressive bank angles for tighter turns. In either switch location, should you become disoriented or lose control, simply releasing the control sticks will return the aircraft to straight and level flight. When your skills have progressed sufficiently to confidently fly in No Assist mode (system off), PASS remains ready to help should you ever lose orientation or feel out of control. All that's required is to move the switch to either Full or Partial Assist and you're back to straightand wings-level flight within seconds!The Beechcraft Model D17 comes fully assembled as an RTF (Ready-To-Fly). Everything needed to fly comes is included in the box. The electronics are pre-installed in the scale airframe, such as a 5-in-1 control board, individual servos to control the ailerons and retracts, 2.4GHz transmitter, and a 300mA USB charger for the included 250mAh 1S 250mAh Lipo Battery. Even the AA batteries needed to power the transmitter are included, so you'll be making the maiden flight of this amazingly detailed, historic airplane within minutes of opening the box!NOTE: This airplane is recommended for intermediate to experienced pilots capable of making coordinated turns using rudder and aileronKey Features:
