Pilatus Porter PC-6 from HobbyKing

Details

The H-King Pilatus Porter PC-6 has a large wingspan of 2150mm (84.6”) and is made of lightweight balsa and ply. It is superbly finished with a detailed cover to give an extremely realistic look. The plane provides a huge presence in the air, especially when doing STOL maneuverers and realistic takeoffs and landings. It can be configured for either electric motors or gas/nitro engines. The Porter will make for a great addition to everyone’s RC hanger.

The Porter has become a STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) workhorse around the world. It was born in Switzerland and first flown in 1959. It is expected the last one will be made in 2019. It is capable of taking off within a distance of 195m and landing within a distance of 130m while carrying a payload of 1200kg in almost any terrain. It holds the world record for the highest landing by a fixed-wing aircraft, at 5,750 m (18,865 feet), on the Dhaulagiri glacier in Nepal. It can be found flying in a large number of countries around the world. Did you see the YouTube clip of the Red Bull base jumpers who jumped off a mountain and landed in the Pilatus Porter.

As an ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) model, you will need to do assembly work and decide on your power plant (gas or electric). The wing control surfaces come pre-hinged to make the building easier but you will need to assemble the rest. There is a large battery hatch upfront if you are going electric and a realistically painted fiberglass cowl makes the front end look just right. The wings come off to make it easier to transport the plane to the flying field. 

Flying the PC-6 is easy 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.

  • All Balsa and lite-ply construction

  • Fiberglass cowling
  • Control surfaces pre-hinged and installed
