Born in a time before twin-engine airplanes were fully accepted, WWII's P-38 brought many "firsts"...including a nonstop range of over 3,000 miles. It could outrun, outclimb, AND outdive the Japanese Zero. Great Planes captures the great fighter's strength and style in this compact profile kit — a snap for sport pilots to build and fly.
- Performance excels with economical .15-size engines — fast, maneuverable, and easy to control even with one engine out.
- CAD designed wood parts interlock perfectly — ABS pieces are ready to cut, paint and install.
- Features tricycle landing gear like the full-size fighter, with a steerable nose wheel controlled by a standard servo in the center pod.
- Efficient throttle and rudder linkages require just one standard servo each, minimizing radio system costs.
"It's thrilling enough to fly a twin, let alone one that looks like the legendary P-38. This kit makes it easy and affordable — while packing in so much detail and dimension, you may just forget that you're piloting a profile!"
