So E-flite recently released a very nice looking, nice sized model of one of my all time favorite, top-ten airplanes, the Twin Otter !

Here's the product link: https://www.horizonhobby.com/twin-ot...ats-p-efl30050

I guess the plane is officially "a hit" as the preorders quickly sold out, and now the model is back-ordered until mid-January !

That said, I really fell in love with the early series 100 Twin Otters made by DeHavilland Canada back in the late 1970's in San Diego, where I got to see them fly out of Montgomery Field on regularly scheduled cargo runs. This model is based on the Viking Air (who bought all the type certificates from DeHavilland Canada) series 400, with a slightly longer nose and upgraded engines putting out substantially more SHP than the original engines.

That said, here's my unboxing video of the E-flite 1.2m Twin Otter :

Enjoy and all the best !
