Avios KingTwin 1700

This great-looking and superb flying Avios KingTwin 1700 sports/scale model is based on a small twin-turboprop and is very reminiscent of the type used by the military or civilian charter airlines around the world. The simplistic, yet striking color scheme depicts the type of paint jobs commonly used on civilian propliners.

Avios (PNF) KingTwin 1700 Sports/Scale Executive Turboprop Airplane (1700mm) - Unboxing & Assembly (20 min 52 sec)

The KingTwin 1700 is packed full of cool features including LED lights, retracts, and split flaps. The powertrain of 2 x Aerostar 3748-820KV brushless outrunners with Aerostar 40A ESCs was chosen by the Avios team after careful testing. This combination of motors, ESCs, contra-rotating props, and a 4S LiPo battery proved to be the optimum setup for power and duration.

The KingTwin 1700 has the ability to operate happily off of smooth, short-grass fields, and of course hard runway surfaces. The split flaps enable scale take-offs and landings, and the daylight visible LED lights add that touch of realism.

For transportation, the outer wing panels feature a unique latching system that allows for quick and easy assembly and removal. This system also includes a quick connect/disconnect plug and socket for the servos and LED lights. Throughout, the KingTwin 1700 uses the very popular and reliable Turnigy HXT900 servos - this is a first for an Avios model. Due to the low parts count of the tough EPO airframe, and being PNF, the KingTwin 1700 is very quick and straightforward to put together, most of it has been pre-assembled at the factory.

The Avios KingTwin 1700 is fantastic to fly and looks brilliant in the air. It has excellent low-speed handling, and at speed, it really grooves and locks in. It's a real pleasure to fly. This impressive twin-engined model is a worthwhile addition to any modeler's hangar for its looks, ease of assembly, and excellent flight characteristics.
