RC Aerodyne (scaleflying.com) Beechcraft Baron G58 Composite ARF
has been developed to make the fuselage as light as possible.
Pressurized tooling allow for an extremely light weight epoxy fuselage
with carbon fiber re-enforcement's. The model also has working doors
produced from the lightest fiberglass and epoxy available. This not
only adds to the realism of the model but allows for a very attractive
display model showing an accurate replication of the real aircraft's
wing design. Allows for easy wing removal and maintenance. Lightweight
fully sheeted balsa wing. Printed panel lines and rivet detail
accurately positioned just like the real aircraft. All control surfaces
are hidden in the wing including flaps and ailerons. The 75" wingspan
allows for very predictable and gentle flight characteristics.
Landing Gear ( sold separately )
landing gear has been developed for the Baron 58. The design allows for
a very scale like landing but also prevents the aircraft from bouncing
back into the air. When on the ground, the 1" of travel is 90%
compressed, and when on approach it is fully uncompressed, ready to
absorb unfavorable surface conditions and also help the pilot in
situations that are unexpected before touch down.
CNC machined aluminum scale landing gear system. 5mm hole for mounting to most retracts.
attention has been given to the actual aircraft panel lines details.
With all the scale features molded directly into the fuselage, it saves
hours of time for the scale enthusiast. The information from hawker
beechcraft plans and photos, the positioning of these items and details
are extremely accurate to the real aircraft.
LED lighting system ( sold separately )
A scale lighting system is also available . Included are the correct
lights, motherboard, and 2 switches for system control. NAV lights (
red , green, flashing red, white strobes, and 2 landing lights ).
Electric or Gas
The firewall has been specially designed to allow for both use of Gas or
Electric motors. Appropriate angled thrust lines have been developed
to ensure safe and coordinated flight characteristics.
Power recommendations: .32 - .46 glow or electric equivalent.
Our flight tests with electric show a very short takeoff distance. Using
Eflite 32's gave the baron plenty of power for take off and sport
For electric users, the removable nose cone and easy slide
in / out battery tray provides quick access for battery install or
changes. The design allows for 1 large battery or 2 smaller batteries.
Scale Cockpit / Interior ( sold separately )
The scale cockpit and interior displays all 6 seats including the control panel with gauges.

Some pictures from box one contents up close.
I have kit 001 based on the stamp on the wing root and have completed the wing section. I am using E-flite 32's with 3 blade props and tru turn spinners. I have installed the MPI strobes and LED nav lights into the wing tips and attached the clear covers with tiny screws. I had to create my own motor mount extensions using thick aluminum tube stock which was a bit of work. This kit is a very true to scale kit with a few deviations. The ailerons, flaps and horizontal stabilizer to be more scale like should have dimples, versus the plastic stock attached to the top of the controls. But, all in all this is a magnificent scale kit and can't wait to complete it. For those who want additional scale details, there were a few publications that recently featured the 50th anniversary B58 baron. Flying Magazine October 2010 issue and Aopa Pilot December 2010.
