Description
Technical Specs
 
This is the Great Planes Viper 500 .25-.46 RTC (Ready-to-Cover) Sport/Racing Airplane. This version requires fiberglassing the wing and fuselage for safety. If you’re not experienced with fiberglassing, seek help from an experienced modeler. This airplane is recommended for intermediate flyers who have mastered a trainer and some sport models.

Features:
  • Made of balsa and plywood
  • One-piece wing with carbon fiber reinforced wood and foam construction
  • One aileron control servo is needed with at least 35 oz-in torque
  • 6.1oz (180cc) Fuel tank
  • Radio compartment is easily accessible under the wing
  • Pre-bent aluminum landing gear
  • Two low-drag nylon wheels, 2.5" (61mm) diameter
  • Bolt-on V-tail design for accurate alignment that can be removed easily for transportation
  • Multi-fit backplate style engine mount, aluminum construction, accepts any engine in the Viper 500s recommended range
  • Assembly Time: 6-8 hours
  • Warranty (through the manufacturer): Great Planes Model Manufacturing Company guarantees this kit to be free from defects in both materials and workmanship at date of purchase

With a 2-stroke .25 and separated elevator/rudder control, the Great Planes Viper 500 is a fun, everyday sport model. Use the V-tail mixing and a larger engine, and it becomes a fiery, ultra-competitive "club racer"...and it's AMA-legal for Quickie 500 in 424 and 428 classes!

World-famous airfoil designer Dr. Michael Selig created the airfoil specifically for Quickie 500 racing. Great Planes adds such performance-boosting "extras" as a perfectly formed engine mounting plate and—to minimize drag—specially engineered wheels and mounting hardware and recessed wing holddown bolts.
