Seagull Fly Baby 10cc-15cc ARF
"I really love my Fly Baby - it went together really well, looked awesome, and flew great. If you’re looking for a good looking model of the Bowers Fly Baby, and you don’t want one made of foam (and don’t have the time to build a kit), look no further than Seagull Models!" -Geoff Barber, RCUniverse.com
The Bowers Fly Baby is an easy-to-assemble, high quality scale ARF from Seagull Models. It's a perfect RC scale aircraft for the hobbyist that is looking to progress to a low-wing design. It is designed for a 10cc-15cc gas engine or comparable electric motor system.
The original Bowers Fly Baby was a single seat, home-built aircraft that first flew in 1962. Its designer, Peter Bowers probably had no idea at the time that his aircraft would still be being built in 2016! With a relatively low cost to assemble, the Fly Baby still remains popular to this day. Just a few years ago, this aircraft could be assembled in a garage for approximately $10,000 - for just a fraction of that cost, you can have your very own RC scale model of this classic homebuilt aircraft!
