The kit is now available for order. please visit jingmodels.com

Here's a latest video
Ultra micro RC Avro 504K afternoon Jingmodels (2 min 24 sec)

__________________________________________________ ______________

Folks,

Here is another WWI kit that I designed for Parkzone micro components.
For anyone who have been waiting for my new kit, I hope the wait was worthwhile.

Avro 504 was the most-produced aircraft of WWI and served as trainer, bombers and fighters. Some Avro 504s were equipped with floats and skis which I am planning to release as an accessory parts in the future.

18" wingspan (1/24 scale, same as Sopwith triplane kit)
AUW 35 gram with 160mah battery and no paint
3ch - rudder / elevator / throttle

Following is the list of new features.

1.Vacuum-formed cowls and Thin Styrene detail parts.
2. Inclusion of airbrushing stencils for ribs and stringers
3. The new method of building struts using folded depron with CF rod or Magnet wire reinforcements.
4. easy access hatch for maintenance and repair.

Here is an old video of a prototype that I uploaded last February.

Thank you for your kind comment. I couldn't decide what paint scheme to put on my Avro.
As the Avro 504 was produced in so many numbers, there are many interesting paint schemes from countries all over the world.

Looks great Jin. I saw a great looking Italian one in the Windsock book that I think I'll do.

Revolving rotary engine is a neat idea but short shaft and short distance between prop and spur gear of Champ gearbox makes it very difficult to implement that idea. I hope you guys can pull it out.

By the way, Mtflyr, Newbeflyer & Speedy01 are my beta testers.
Thank you guys. I feel really lucky to have you.

Always a pleasure to help out. It's very exciting to have a kit to build from The Jin Avro Aeronautical Company (US division) The Crazy Canuck(Flying Beaver) is always proud to help beta this kit. Thanks

That looks very cool. Seems to do well in a small gym too - one of my micro criteria.

How or where does one order your kits?

Beautiful, Jin!!

That's what I call a "soft" flyer - nice and slow - softly.

Question: Can it turn a bit tighter than the video? If so, I can see it flying in our single basketball court-sized gym!

Eager!!

I got to fly this bird indoors and yesterday had a blast flying it outside. This thing can really slow down and has a great glide for real smooth landings

Thank you for your comment.

Yes, Avro can turn in ridiculously tight circle.
In the video, I wanted to fly in scale manner and made turns in wide radius.
Flying in one basketball court is easy and enjoyable.

This might be the one I would do, it's a reproduction of the first Canadian military trainer plane, it was done in silver first then repainted to the Olive color later so they can SEE it better(could this been the earliest version of the CANADIAN STEALTH fighters)mmmmmm:
