Microaces Curtiss P-6E Hawk Biplane

Hi All,

Just to let you know the new Microaces P-6E kit is now available to pre-order from the Microaces website with stock ready to ship from the second week in October.
For the first 20 kits we will be including a new acrylic deskstand we've designed plus a 'collectors edition' full colour assembly manual too.

This is a 16" wingspan profile scale biplane from the 1930's and it was you guys (at least some of you) who voted it top in a poll held at the end of last year on RCGroups.

It has been a real pleasure to design and build and I am now officially a biplane convert after experiencing the sheer elegance of flying with two wings - even at this small scale.

The kit comprises of all the regular Microaces stuff plus laser cut aviation plywood parts (struts, fixed U/C etc) and over 100 sticker components that make it a really enjoyable and absorbing kitchen/dining/coffee table project.

Flight wise it's good for medium and large indoor venues as well as outdoors. You can check out it's performance on Youtube as well as the Microaces website.

I'll shut up now. If anyone has any questions please fire away. I've attached some images and the PDF spec sheet. There's also a good deal of historic info on the Microaces website too about the aircraft and the man who flew it.

We managed to show off all our kits just before Christmas at the Model Engineering Exhibition. Made up a fully working P-6E skeleton kit. Haven't had a chance yet but I was going put a prop on and see if it would fly without the covering Any bets?
