Vans RV-8 Diamond from Seagull Models


Elegant, aerobatic, pretty, and with smooth racy lines one can only love the RV-8. Its model spirit, respect for overall proportions, wing, sturdy landing gear and combat bubble combine to make this beautiful aircraft a modeler's dream. Seagull certainly knows when he makes a good airplane and a modeler who sees this one can't ignore it. They will especially appreciate its wingspan, a practical size perfect for everyday use but still big enough to give real presence in the air. Absolutely ideal for a glow 91 four stroke engine, a 20-22 esselnce, the RV-8 uses 8 standard servos and a 6 channel mini radio.
