De Havilland company, known for its time by the progressive aa quick light bombers DH-4 and DH-9 from the end of the First World War, in the late 20s and 30s of the last century little overslept. For years, he concocted and built an elegant two- or even four-engined "modern" cabin biplanes on short routes. The best known of these is probably the model DH.89 Dragon Rapide, which was also produced for the RAF as a transport and training with the martial name "Dominie". Dragon Rapida flying today - if you visit the UK, thanks to the Wings Classic (2 machines) or other operators you can go back in time and experience the convenience of an airliner from the 30s. Sightseeing flight over Duxford needed is life experience. Caution, the maximum allowable passenger weight is 20 stone!

Designers of American companies DUMAS Aircraft is the ideal machine for advanced modellers / builder who already has more experience in building small models powered by rubber or piloting gliders and RC model operated around all three axes. Really thoroughly enjoy "žbrdličkovou" skeleton of the fuselage and wings, paper coating and painting - work "as a church", but it goes through high preprocessed laser-carved works like clockwork.

RC kit semiscales British transport biplane designed to drive two electric motors. The model is a classic balsa structure in Rozsyp with laser carved wooden parts, scale accessories made of vacuum-molded plastic parts drawn by plastic injection molding and metal. The hull is constructed of conventional technologies minimaketářskou sides of balsa wood glued beams that connect polopřepážkami and bars in the lattice frame. The resulting shapes get after fixing any additional stringers. The wing is a classic design from the spars and ribs, tail out of balsa wood strips and laser-carved parts. Minor "tweaks" is making the peripheral parts of the tail of balsa wood strips laminated wet. You get so easily surprisingly strong and lightweight parts - without the use of carbon! Drawings necessary templates again refer to the instructions. The whole model can drag the paper supplied in the kit or a suitable lightweight iron sheets with little shrinkage, such as Airspan or Litespan.

Dragon Rapide is designed to drive two small DC motors with gearbox - eg. Power unit GWS, which are drawn on the plan. Nowadays probably choose small AC motor - in this case you will have to redesign the motor mount (insert new motor mount from 1.5-2 mm birch plywood). Total easy it should go using the "outrunners" with a diameter of 22 mm, as HiMax C2212-1180 used in models Merlin by Multiplex. The common outrunners 28 mm in diameter is due to the small width of the engine nacelles bigger challenge - the engine (normal position with collet grippers propeller) can be fastened behind the forehead using the "L" bracket of 1 mm duralumin sheet and attached to překližkovému "language" or stronger spruce beams underneath the engine. "Language" or the beam is anchored into the motor bulkhead and stiffens struts, just as it is plotted on a plan for GWS drive unit. For relaxed flying just class motors AXI 2208, and Li-poly two- or tříčlánek 1100 to 1300 mAh. "Namotorování" We recommend overdoing it - it's a park-flyer, not a rocket. For takeoff from the asphalt path, you can use a propeller with a diameter of up to 7 inches, flying from the neatly clipped turf is safer to select only six inch propeller (see table).

Kit includes: laser carved balsa parts, balsa wood beams, vacuum-molded parts (engine covers, canopy ...), steel strings on chassis and other small parts, lightweight foam wheels, colored lining paper sheet of stickers, construction plan. < / P>
