Hobbyking (Art Tech) 1700MM PC6 Pilatus Porter Thread!
I haven't seen a thread for this model, so I figured I would start one.
You can purchase the model HERE
I think it is a fantastic size, and the scale lines are maintained well. I swapped the motor on mine, from the 700kv mushroom type, to a 760kv FMS Edge 540 motor and prop. I trimmed the cowl to line up, and took about 3/4 of an inch of foam off behind the original firewall position. I will take some pics of how I did mine if there is interest, but here is a pic of my completed power swap. I also installed Dubro Low bounce 3.5 inch rubber tires, and I am running an 80 amp Hobbywing ESC, with an HK 5A/6V SBEC. The wingtip lights flash, so I did not leave them hooked up. I will upgrade the lighting package, and add floats. The floats from the E-flite Apprentice S are what I have chosen to retrofit. DImensions are just about perfect for this plane.

Just came across your you tube flight video. Looks like a perfect plane for my needs.
Hope to see this thread take off.

With its high aspect ratio wing, and effective flaps, it performs beautifully. The stock power set is acceptable, but I wanted to correct the cartoonish spinner gap, and go to a 3 blade prop mostly for looks, but also sound. The FMS Edge 540 setup was a perfect match. I used to have a Fly zone Beaver, and I was mildly happy with it. This airplane out-performs that Beaver, even in stock configuration.

There is a thread already started on this plane under the "Scale ARF/RTF" Section. It would be nice to keep this model on one thread & personally, the HK Pilatus is definitely a "scale" model. Maybe get one of the Mods to move it for you. Here's the link.....
