Giant Aeromaster ARF

Big-time barnstorming – with ARF ease!

Lou Andrews unveiled the original kit almost 40 years ago — and the Aeromaster has been carrying modelers back to the age of barnstorming biplanes ever since. This easy-to-build, giant scale ARF may be the biggest news in Aeromaster history yet. Flight-ready in as little as 20-25 hours, it's the simple choice for taking your low-wing piloting skills into giant scale!

  • Solid, predictable performance with glow or gasoline power.

  • Beautifully hand-crafted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants, painted to match the MonoKote trim.

  • Performs loops, rolls, stall turns, inverted flight and more — with all the grace and allure of the Aeromasters that have gone before!

parts layout
Major components are already built and covered, using hand-selected balsa and ply having the best weight and density for each structure. High-quality Great Planes brand hardware is included, plus fuel tank, engine mount, wheels, and tailwheel assembly.
The wings are provided as four built-up balsa/ply panels covered in MonoKote film. The panels are permanently glued together to form two one-piece wings which remove easily for transport and reattach to the fuselage, cabanes, and interplane struts with little effort at the field.

The Giant Aeromaster ARF is best-suited for gasoline engines like the fuel-efficient Fuji-Imvac™ BT-43 EI pictured. Through extensive flight tests, Great Planes has found this to be the perfect combination of plane and power system.
