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 or piloting gliders and RC model controlled rudder and elevator. You will improve in the building "žbrdličkové" skeleton of the fuselage and wings, paper coating and painting - it's due to highly preprocessed laser-carved works like clockwork.
RC kit semiscales American amateur high wing aircraft designed for electric propulsion. The model is simple but 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 balsa wood beams, bulkheads and partitions forming a lattice frame. Any local curves get after sticking a large number of thin stringers .. The wing is a classic design from the spars and ribs, tail out of balsa wood strips and laser-carved parts.

Air Camper is designed to drive a small DC motor with gear - e.g. GWS drive unit, which is drawn on the plan. Nowadays probably choose small AC motor - for a comfortable flying just class motor AXI 2203 and Li-poly two cells 400-500 mAh. In this case you will have to redesign the motor mount (insert new motor mount from 1 mm birch plywood), but it should not pose a serious problem.
Kit includes: laser carved balsa parts, balsa wood beams, vacuum-molded parts (mock-up of the engine ...), steel strings on chassis and other small parts, lightweight wheels, lining paper sheet of stickers, construction plan.
