DC-3/C-47 plans?


Is the DC-3 a kit or scratch build?

Your plane looks great! I imagine it's fairly durable as well with garbage can construction.

ITS A KIT! And ya it is very durable. Its like heavy duty plastic fuse with built up detachable wings.The kit was one my buddies and he gave me it and he said he had it for like 20 years and it just sat. it came with brushed inrunner motors.

they're not really different actually
the C-47 most common military version of the civilian DC-3 indeed
there's many variations, but they all share the same airframe
different motors, different interior, electrics, gun mounts, etc, some even without motors (its a glider airframe so it flies well without any motor)

yours is a DC-3 since no military paint scheme :P
