HobbyKing - Avios C-130 Hercules 1600mm Military Grey Blue Angels "Fat Albert"

Avios C-130 1600mm PNF - HobbyKing Product Video (2 min 34 sec)

Balancing 8 quad props is gonna be a B*TCH but "no pain = no gain" ....................apparently . Fill this Big Baby with batteries and cameras and get flying.

Pilot your very own C-130 with this exquisite scale aircraft. Completed with the highest level of scale detail, this AVIOS aircraft is the best replica on the market. With a 1600mm wingspan and measuring over a metre in length, the AVIOS C-130 features fully sequenced landing gear, working cargo door, navigation lights, and scale props.

Beloved worldwide, the American four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft is capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings. The C-130 was assigned as a troop, medevac and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, and aerial firefighting. It is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide.

The historic aircraft features pre-installed electronics, removable wings, and bolt-together pieces. Coming in two color schemes, the C-130 is available in the Blue Angels US Navy aerobatics scheme (Fat Albert) or Military Gray. The Blue Angels use a United States Marine Corps Lockheed C-130T Hercules, nicknamed "Fat Albert", for their logistics, carrying spare parts, equipment, and to carry support personnel between shows. "Fat Albert Airlines" flies with an all-Marine crew of three officers and five enlisted personnel.

The AVIOS C-130 has a cargo door which can be operated by an aux channel on your computer radio. Fantastic for any candy drop events at the flying field. A cabin light has also been added and it can be switched on/off automatically when the door is opened or closed.

AVIOS presents the only true scale representation of the mighty C-130.
