* Optional Flaps installation via single servo
* 480 BL motor-Lots of power and performance

Overview

Built in 1938, the Stinson Reliant is as much a work of art as a work of engineering. The combination of its gracefull lines and unique wing shape give you the sense it's reaching for the sky even when it's parked on the ramp.

It comes out of the box loaded with scale details like an authentic paint scheme and markings, simulated ribbing in the wings, a simulated radial engine, accurately modeled landing gear and much more. A robust Parkzone 480 brushless motor power system provides plenty of power for everything from half throttle cruising to full throttle sport aerobatics. And it will do it all with the same smooth sport flying manners you've come to expect from a Parkzone plane.

Specs list for PKZ5280
Wingspan 49.6 inch (1260 mm)
Length 33.5 inch (850 mm)
Weight 37.1 oz (1050g)
Motor 480 Brushless
ESC E-Flite 30 AMP
Battery 11.1v 1800mAh Li-Po
Radio 5 Channel required




















this looks like a very nice plane and one i think i will be adding to my collection

cheers chuck

Hummm.

Do I want the instant gratification that comes from buying a foamy that several other guys will also have - or do I want to enjoy the satisfaction of building my very own Reliant from a Tritle short kit and ending up with a model that is uniquely my own?

It's not a difficult question - I'll do both.

I have a Super Cub right in front of me and it still didn't register. LOL! When I think Hobbyzone I think Firebird Phantom.

The Stinson flies more like the T-28 than anything else. It flies unbelievably well. I hope y'all like it.

First thing I thought after seeing that is...wonder if a turnigy 35-42 will fit...
Still...will probably get the bf109. Lovely plane though. Love the wing shape.

The gull-winged Reliant is being modeled to death. It's about time. Wait until you see my Peps-Cola SR-7 executive aircraft version.
