Unique Models PT-17 Stearman PNP **DETAILED PHOTOS ADDED**

Just signed a contract with a company in China to distribute their planes and the first plane up for grabs this week are the PT-17 Stearman. I need to sell about 10 of them in order for the order to be complete.

• Material:EPO foam
• Wingspan: 47.24in
• Length: 37in
• Height: 15.35in
• Flying Weight: Around 1650g
• Propeller: 2-paddle 12 X 6
• ESC:40 amp Brushless ESC
• Power Setup: 850KV Brushless Ф 36X48XФ4
• Servo's: 4X 9g servos

All you need to get this plane flying is

• Battery: 14.8V/25C/2200-2600mAH Lipo
• Control System: 4CH 2.4G Radio system

You can have one 215 shipped to your door anywhere in the US (excluding Alaska and Hawaii). Bargain price

If your interested let me know and you don't have to pay until I get 10 people to order.

Thanks,
Douglas Young

I AM NOT SCAMMING YOU SO PLEASE DO NOT REPORT. IF THE THREAD NEEDS TO BE MOVED SOMEWHERE ELSE LET ME KNOW.

Way to go Douglas.
I had been hoping to find another source for some of these very models.Good luck and remember,there are tons of people here that would love to buy from a US source,provided the follow up support is there.Please keep that in mind.I'd love to know when you have the t-6II texan(Unique Models) available.Stearman is also on my list,but just not right at this moment.Oh,and if that is the Corsair I am thinking it is,that seems to be the best out there so far,in it's size range.

Hey Douglas.If you don't mind,I have a request.I was highly anticipating the release of the FMS Stearman.However,when I saw that they had swept back the top wing,I was turned off.To me that is a design flaw.It totally turned me off.While I understand why they did it,there are some things that you just should not alter on a scale airplane.If you can't make it fly right,then there is some other problem.So my request is,when you get your hands on this Stearman,can you verify that the wing sweep has not been changed.It doesn't look like it from the pic's.

Where can we get additional info on this andbother models from the chinese company? Im all for helping someone start a USA based distributions but, I have to be honest I've never heard of these.

I for one need additional information, especially RCG reviews, about this companies stuff before I'd consider buying one. Not trying to be rude or offensive but, it would help your cause a lot if there was a lot more info.

Thank.

I will be uploading more pictures then you can see if the l wing is swept back. I will also contact the manufacture for you.

Also I understand you wanting more info on this company. If you search unique Rc models there are quit a few rcgroups threads/posts about them.

And sorry no sailplanes just warbirds.

Hey Douglas, I have een your post here for a while, good luck with this. I am curious about what happened to the USAF deal. I don't blame you for the change though. Will be great to have a supplier like you to deal with in the US. I know you will do well. Congrats....D/ZZ

Well this bits, why does everyone have to exclude Alaska. We are already getting screwed on gas, smokes and everthing else. I me hell McDonalds doesn't even have a $1, its the value menu (a Chesseburger is freaking 2 bucks) Well, guess I will have to pay the over priced shipping from Nitro or horizon.

Anyway, looks like a great plane, wish I could get it. Let me know how she flies guys.
