Great Planes R/C pilots have successfully learned to fly with a Perfect Trainer than any other kit. By applying recent engineering advances to these proven models, Great Planes has made them more durable, more stable, and even easier to build!
Kits include all assembly hardware plus heavy duty landing gear and materials for a bolt-on or rubber band-attached wing. Larger, extra-stable PT-40 MKII takes a .40 engine - a size the pilot could likely reuse in future models. Ideal for small flying sit's, PT-20 MKII also lowers startup costs by using an economical.20-size engine. Innovative interlocking I-beam engineering simplifies wing construction and maximizes strength. The ribs plug securely into spars and webbing to maintain proper alignment.
Proper amounts of wing dihedral and washout enable PTs to self-recover from control mishaps - new pilots worry less, and learn faster. Extensively photo-illustrated instruction manuals cover kit assembly PLUS building a workbench, choosing tools, preparing for flight...verything a new hobbyist needs to know.
PT wings are built with ailerons for full 4-channel control, but they can be locked in place for 3-channel operation. Leading and trailing edges come preshaped for easy assembly.
Includes: Adjustable engine mount (GPMG1061), 3/16landing gear, pushrods, full-size rolled plans, illustrated instructions, all balsa and plywood to build the trainer, and CA hinge strip.
