BH177-Fairchild 24W from Black Horse Model


Designed for operations from relatively unimproved grass airfields, the sturdy undercarriage construction used a vertical oil dampened cylinder above the wheel with a pivoting strut attached to the lower fuselage. The result was a complex but robust undercarriage that could absorb the large loads imposed by rough field operations and could be adapted for the fitting of twin floats for water-based operations.

The model is scaled to approximately 1:4.7 and attention was paid to a true to original appearance and best flight characteristics. The model can be operated using an electric power system or with an internal combustion engine about 30-35cc displacement.
