Gee Bee Transmitter-Ready EP Sport/Scale Plane

Unmistakable looks — outstanding performance.

The Gee Bee's unusual fuselage design acts as an airfoil, allowing the plane to make smooth "knife edge" turns without losing altitude. With foam construction and a brushless electric power system and 4 micro servos already in place, this Transmitter-Ready replica of the famous pylon racer can be turning heads and drawing attention at the field within minutes after installing your radio of choice and battery!

  • Smooth and predictable sport performance
  • Simple, fast, no-glue assembl
  • Brushless motor, ESC, 4 micro servos and 2.4GHz receiver with SLT installed

The Gee Bee: an unlikely-looking champion racer.

Designed by the Granville Brothers in the 1930s, the Gee Bee's shape was intended to accommodate the Pratt & Whitney R-1340, the largest and most powerful engine of its day. With Jimmy Doolittle in the cockpit, the Gee Bee won the prestigious 1932 Thompson Trophy race and set a world landplane speed record of 476 km/h (296 mph) in the Shell Speed Dash.

interior
The roomy interior makes battery pack changes easier, and is accessible through a hatch that attaches with magnets.
wheel pants
The wheel pants attach magnetically, and can "break away" without damage in the event of a hard landing.
one-piece wing
The one-piece wing attaches with one screw under the hatch, for easy transport.
foam fuselage with detail
The AeroCell foam fuselage has details such as panel lines and vents molded in; easy-to-install "flying wire" elastic cord is included for added scale realism.

Tough enough to take abuse —
light enough for exciting electric flight!

Fly the Gee Bee — and all other Tx-R aircraft — with your favorite transmitter!

Already own a transmitter that’s set up just the way you like? Then use it to fly your favorite Tx-R aircraft!

That’s the simplicity and value of Tx-R. As long as your transmitter is compatible with AnyLink — nearly all brands, bands and modulations are* — it will fly this model and any other Tx-R airplane you fly in the future. In most cases, you’ll just plug the tiny AnyLink (available separately) into your transmitter’s trainer port. Then you’re ready to send secure 2.4GHz signals to the SLT receiver included with every Tx-R model. See tx-ready.com for full details.

Another Tx-R advantage: the included components are installed and expertly matched to the model for optimum performance — no guessing what motor, battery or servos will work best!

*To see if your transmitter is compatible with the AnyLink, see the AnyLink Compatibility Chart on tx-ready.com.
