The company was one of Glenn Curtiss at the turn of the 20s and 30s among the foremost promoters of dive-bombing that promised to bring the hit accuracy needed for attacks against point targets on land or quickly navigating and maneuvering warships. Climax options dvojplošných aircraft represents SBC3 Helldiver from 1935; "modern" cabin biplane with all metal skeleton covered cabin crew, variable-pitch propeller, retractable landing gear and arresting hook landing on an aircraft carrier. For dive bombing Curtiss developed the necessary gadgets, such as aerodynamic brakes reducing speed in a dive to a safe limit, and especially folding fork that plotted bomb slung under the fuselage outside the propeller, so that it can safely be overthrown in almost perpendicular descent. No wonder that at Curtiss in happier times, when there seemed no great wars never in the civilized world can not be replaced internships experts from around the world. Especially German and Japanese engineers have proved to be too good students ...
Designers of American companies DUMAS Aircraft is the ideal machine for modelers who already has at least basic experience in building small models powered by rubber (as a general model for the acquisition of basic experience with classical building is recommended to first build eg. One of the cabin wing aircraft from Guillow's or HERR) . You will improve in the building "žbrdličkové" skeleton of the fuselage and wings, paper coating and painting, preparation and curing the rubber volume zalétávání - just all those wonderful skills genuine classic modelařiny. Given the size and complexity of the master model is already quite a lot of construction, but due to high preprocessed laser-carved parts it goes like clockwork.
Designers freely flying semiscales a US Navy dive bomber intended to drive by rubber. The model is simple but classic balsa structure in Rozsyp with laser carved wooden parts, scale accessories made of vacuum-molded plastic parts and plastic drawn by injection molding. The hull is constructed normal minimaketářskou technology - the first of balsa wood strips assembling the sides, which connect polopřepážkami and bars in the lattice frame. The final round shapes get after sticking a large number of thin stringers. The wings are the classic design of the spars and ribs, tail out of balsa wood strips and laser-carved parts.
Helldiver is also suitable for conversion to RC model - is already large enough to support the fairly common for miniature RC servos 5-9 grams facilities. You can drive for an AC motor AXI class of 2208, and two- or tříčlánek Li-Po 400-800 mAh
Kit includes: laser carved balsa parts, balsa wood beams, vacuum-molded parts (engine cover, canopy ...), plastic propeller shaft and head, rubber volume (FAI competition rubber TAN II), bicycles, steel strings on the chassis, and more small parts, colored lining paper sheet of stickers, construction plan.
