Taylorcraft 450 ARF
available BNF

OVERVIEW

The Taylorcraft is a conventional high wing fabric covered two seat aircraft from the 1940s. It was known for its luxury, speed and efficiency with what was then a relatively limited horsepower engine.

E-flite have recreated this aviation icon with this almost ready to fly electric version of the clipped wing Taylorcraft. Scale enthusiasts will marvel at the incredible detail and accurate appearance which is enhanced with moulded fabric covered seats, painted trim on the overhead window, pre-painted fibreglass cowl and wheel spats and balsa wood strut covers that all contribute to the scale appearance.

Constructed from laser-cut lightweight balsa and plywood the Taylorcraft uses the newly designed sliding motor mount system that allows you the option to mount a variety of motors to the airframe, recommended motor is either the E-flite 450 or 480 brushless outrunner. It’s lightweight construction and high wing layout makes the model both docile and easy to fly, but thanks to the clipped wing the Taylorcraft is capable of mild aerobatics such as loops, rolls, and even inverted flight.

Changing the battery at the airfield is quick and easy thanks to the magnetic battery hatch, and the model is covered in UltraCote in an authentic scale colour scheme of cream with red trim which captures all the style and grace of what for many was the “golden era” of civilian aviation.

A comprehensive hardware pack and illustrated assembly guide along with the pre-fitted control surfaces and steerable tail wheel means this super model can be flight ready in no time at all.
