Gee Bee Transmitter-Ready EP Sport/Scale Plane

Unmistakable looks — outstanding performance.

Tech notice Tech notice

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
  • Fast, simple, no-glue assembly
  • All onboard gear factory-installed for your convenience

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.

The roomy interior makes battery pack changes easier, and is accessible through a magnetically attached hatch.
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 molded-in panel lines and vents. Easy-to-install "flying wire" elastic cord is included for added scale realism.

light enough for exciting electric flight!

Tx-R Transmitter-Ready

Tx-R

More ease. More choices. More fun.

Why go with a Tx-R? Glad you asked.

Start with speed and ease. Tx-R aircraft help you save time and get you to the flight line faster. They’re assembled and finished and all onboard electronics are installed …including an SLT receiver. Take a Tx-R out of the box, and you’re practically ready to fly. Now that’s fast and easy.

Add flexibility to the mix. With a Tx-R, you don’t have to buy a special radio to fly.

That’s because all Tx-R aircraft come with an SLT receiver. And since they do, you have two very attractive choices.

One, you can fly a Tx-R with a 2.4GHz SLT radio system from Tactic or other manufacturer. Just look for a radio with an “SLT” logo; that tells you they’re 100% compatible with the receivers in all Tx-R aircraft.

However, you may already have a favorite transmitter and don’t want to give up. That brings up choice #2: the Tactic AnyLink2. Attach it to your transmitter and it does something amazing: it broadcasts a true 2.4GHz signal that any SLT receiver can pick up. It works with virtually all transmitters, regardless of brand, band or modulation. And it not only costs less than a new radio; it costs less than many receivers.

For ease, economy, choices and more fun, there’s nothing like Tx-R.
