This is the E-Flite Taylorcraft 450 ARF Airplane. E- Flite’s Taylorcraft 450 ARF is a lightweight, easy-to-assemble scale parkflyer that’s made of plywood and balsa. The Taylorcraft’s lightweight high wing placement and construction make this almost-ready-to-fly a docile, easy-to-fly aircraft that is gentle enough for most pilots, yet the replication of the clipped wing variant makes the modelerobatic-capable so more advanced modelers can experiment with rolls, loops, and inverted flight.
The Taylorcraft 450 comes highly prefabricated, so you can get in the air in as little as 3 to 4 hours. The tailwheel assembly comes installed and all of the control surfaces are factory-hinged, saving you a ton of time. The pre-molded side windows conveniently pop into the fuselage with very little effort. The durable aluminum landing gear gives the E-Flite Taylorcraft solid handling, even when landings and takeoffs occur in not-so-friendly locations, and its steerable tail wheel aids in runway taxiing.
Scale enthusiasts will marvel at the E-Flite Taylorcraft’s remarkably accurate appearance. The true-to-scale outline is accentuated by a red and cream scale UltraCote trim scheme, which classically replicates the civilian airplane's golden days. Internally mounted servos also help maintain the scale integrity. The Taylorcraft’s cockpit comes outfitted with fabric-covered, molded seats, and the overhead window is duplicated right down to the painted trim. The fiberglass cowl and wheel pants, and balsa wood strut covers also contribute to this nostalgic plane’s sophisticated look.
E-Flite Taylorcraft features a lightweight design that’s focused around a Park 450 BL Outrunner Motor, with a great power-to-weight ratio. Or, the Taylorcraft can be paired with the E-Flite 480 BL Outrunner Motor for maximum power. The Taylorcraft utilizes E-Flite’s new sliding motor mount system which allows modelers to mount multiple engines to the same airframe using the same, adjustable mount. And, swapping out batteries is a breeze thanks to the easy-access magnetic battery hatch.
