  • Painted fiberglass fuselage.

  • Prehinged control surfaces.

  • Ready to accept optional retracts.

optional mechanical retracts
Wells are built-in for optional pneumatic or mechanical retracts — but covered to preserve the model's looks if you choose to install the included fixed landing gear.

removabel painted fiberglass cowl
For easier engine installation and set-up, the painted fiberglass cowl is removable — not molded as part of the fuselage.
standard muffler or tuned pipe
The Dirty Birdy easily accommodates a standard muffler or tuned pipe. A wooden hardpoint is built into the wing for secure tuned pipe attachment.

control surfaces
All of the model's control surfaces have been hinged at the factory for fast final assembly.
balsa-sheeted horizontal stabilizer
The halves of the balsa-sheeted horizontal stabilizer slide onto carbon fiber tubes, aligning perfectly, securely and automatically.

on-board radio equipment
Removing the Dirty Birdy's wing provides quick, easy access to your on-board radio equipment.
