PT-17 from Maxford USA

Details

The PT-17 is a biplane that was used as a military trainer by the US Army Air Corps during the 1930s and it served throughout WWII. The PT-17 is also widely known as the Stearman, Boeing Stearman, Boeing Model 75, or the Kaydet. At least 9,783 were built and thousands of surplus PT-17s were sold on the civil market after the conflict.

This almost ready to fly radio control version of the PT-17 is based on the aircraft that is owned by John Mohr, who very kindly sent us many detailed pictures of his personal aircraft. We also acknowledge and thank Jay Smith, editor or Model Aviation, for his help and advice on this project.

V1.1 improvements to Maxford USA’s ARF PT-17 Stearman: Landing gear fairings are a new 2-piece ‘split’ design; these fairings can now be replaced separately from the aluminum main landing gear strut; Wing wires have been upgraded to steel cables; windshields are now thicker and have a darker-color for the simulated frames; tail wheel strut is now simpler to install; wing tips have been strengthened; and wood has been added to the cockpit hatches to simplify installing optional pilot figures. NOTE: The vertical stabilizer’s alignment to the aft turtledeck (the top of the convex surface of the fuselage behind the rear cockpit) was improved earlier, as a running-change to V1.

Features:

  • The fuselage, wings and empennage are factory-built from laser-cut balsa and light plywood.
  • The ‘oversized’ magnetic hatch is big enough for easy access to all fuselage-mounted components.
  • A dummy radial engine and a pair of scale windshields are included.
  • Plastic leggings cover the aluminum main landing gear for true-to-scale looks; wheels have treaded tires.
  • The included steerable tail wheel also has a true-to-scale appearance.
