More information about Great Planes Gee Bee R-1 EP Tx-R GPMA6022


This is the Great Planes Gee Bee R-1 EP Tx-R (Transmitter Ready) Sport Scale Airplane, with four micro servos, Silver Series 35A ESC, and a 1000kV brushless motor included. The Great Planes Gee Bee flies smoothly and predictably. It does not, however, possess the self-recovery characteristics of a primary R/C trainer and should be flown by pilots who have soloed and graduated beyond a basic trainer model. The Gee Bee is capable of radical maneuvers like inverted flat spins, tight knife-edge loops, hovering, and spot landing.
