DHC-2 Turbo Beaver from Black Horse Model


The DHC Beaver was introduced in 1947 by DeHavilland as a single engine, high wing monoplane featuring stresses skin, monocoque construction. By the end of production in 1967, some 1600 aircraft had been produced. The late version presented here is a DHC 2T Turbo Beaver and is a development of the original piston-powered plane. The Beaver has gained a well-deserved reputation as the "workhorse of the north".

The model is scaled to approximately 1:6.7 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 20-35cc displacement.
