Seagull JU-133 Bucker Jungmeister ARF - Bevo Howard Color Scheme

A sport scale model of aviation's first aerobatic thoroughbred - the legendary Bucker Jungmeister. Designed and built in Germany in the 1930s, the Jungmeister's aerobatic performance was far superior to any biplane up to that time.  It is still considered by many to be the sweetest flying biplane ever made.  Seagull's Jungmeister is conventionally built using balsa and plywood, with a superior laser-cut design that keeps the structure strong and light.  

• A sport scale model of a legendary airplane
• Outstanding aerobatic capability
• Four ailerons for rapid roll rate
• Light weight balsa and plywood construction
• CAD designed and CNC laser cut parts
• Covered in genuine UltraCote®

• Painted fiberglass cowl
• Scale dummy engine insert
• Ready-to-install main landing gear
• Unique scale main wheel fenders
• Shock absorbing tailwheel assembly

Mr.
The plane components are well built and the covering good and is very well applied. The instruction manual leaves a lot to be desired: Assembly steps are in some cases out of sequence and some are omitted entirely. Translation of instructions to english could be a lot better.

The plane itself is a real beauty, seems to be well built. the hardware package is a disgrace as are the instructions. Not what I expected from a sig product!

Plane is gorgeous, Hardware is atrocious. Assembly manual ,except for few out of sequence pics is almost useless. Missing hardware and glue spilled into blind nuts make assembly difficult. Only someone with some kit building experience should even consider this project. If you have the skills ( and a set of metric taps) the result is a beautiful\ addition to anyone's hanger.

I finally managed to get mine together and in the air. I missing some hardware, but had spares, so I just used those. I didn't use the plastic radial that came with the kit. There wasn't much left after I cut away to fit around my electric motor. I test flew with a power 110 on 9s, but it flew like it was tailheavy. I switched to a power 160 on 10S, but haven't had an opportunity to fly it yet. I used the 180 mm cg mark in the manual. I moved the cg forward about 10mm and will try again. The tires hit the mounting screws for the wheel covers, so I replaced them with robarts and ground down the screws until they were flush. It did get a lot of attention at the field though.

The wing transport frames do not fit the airfoil lower and upper surfaces. Also there in no way they can be installed. Without these frames, assembly time at the field would be really time consuming.
