RC Aerodyne Beechcraft Baron 58
OK, I'll admit to it ..... I'm a sucker for anything general aviation related. Unfortunately there just isn't much selection out there in terms of scale general aviation birds. When I was crusing around the web, I ran across the scaleflying.com website and noticed they are currently developing a KingAir and had recently released a Beechcraft Baron G58. For those of you who don't know about it, the Baron G58 is a 5 seater twin engine prop plane. It's manufactured by the Beechcraft Corpration, and is considered by many to be at the top of its class in build quality and performance. I could go on and on about how cool of a plane it is, and how much I would love to own one, but I think you're getting that idea by now anyways.
I contacted RC Aerodyne in regards to the Baron, and in quick order had one headed my direction. The plane came in 3 large boxes, one with the fuselage, one with the canopy kit, and the other with the wings and nacelles. Cracking the boxes open it was clear the finish quality on this plane is very high. Each panel line, decal, and subtle curve of the real life plane is present, so it came as no surprise when I learned that the RC Aerodyne Baron is an officially licensed product from the Beechcraft Corporation. I'll be doing a full review on this plane here on RCG with much more detail on the plane and the other components required to get this bird in the air. More to come soon...

When I was in aviation I worked on a Baron that had been with Transport Canada from the factory until bought locally. Very well laid out and maintained. Glad to see someone produce a quality kit of it. What do you plan for power?
Also helped rebuild a B200 King Air that had spent 10 years total in Africa. A major undertaking that resulted in one of the best looking and performing King 200's up there. It had its quirks, but scooted along pretty well, (275+ knots).
