Tech Notice Revolver 50cc
Step up in simplicity, style and size!

Can you imagine a giant-scale project that assembles as quickly and easily as a .40- or .60-size ARF? The folks at Great Planes did — and that's why the Revolver 50 cc is, hands-down, the best gas giant model around.

If there's an easy, effortless way to do it, Great Planes has included it in Revolver 50 cc design. Prehinged control surfaces, simpler ways to attach and remove the wings and horizontal stabs, painted fiberglass parts — the Revolver 50 cc has them all, along with big-plane presence, impressive performance and agile aerobatic handling.

  • Great first gas airplane
  • Simple 4-channel setup
  • Offers "bigger-is-better" performance and easier-than-average assembly

Wing panels
Wing panels with prehinged ailerons slide onto a carbon-fiber joiner tube and "lock" in place with a few turns of a nylon thumbscrew.
prehinged stabilizer
Like the wing panels, the prehinged stabilizer halves slide onto a joiner tube. Each half attaches with just two screws — a feature that streamlines setup and removal and simplifies storage.
hatch and pilot figure
The hatch arrives with a painted pilot figure and clear canopy already installed, providing time savings as well as easy access to radio gear and the fuel tank.
painted fiberglass cowl
A factory-installed ring offers an "invisible" way to secure the painted fiberglass cowl. An aluminum spinner is included, as part of a complete, high-quality hardware package.
aluminum landing gear
Revolver pluses also include sturdy aluminum gear and fiberglass wheel pants that mount with just two screws.
Revolver in flight
The Revolver 50 cc offers the same handling as the .40 and .60 versions: agile, predictable and ideal for aerobatics. Its weight and seven and a half foot wingspan make easier to handle in the wind and easier to track in the air.
GPM Phazer EDF ARF fiberglass fuse, MonoKote Covering
Built for strength, lightness and good looks! The Revolver 50 cc features a built-up fuselage and tail surfaces, balsa-sheeted foam-core wings and factory-applied MonoKote film.
