Seagull has captured the look and history of the legendary Douglas Skyraider in this exciting semi-scale ARF, suitable for Glow, Gas, or Electric power. The airframe is conventional built balsa and plywood construction, yet a modern laser-cut design allows the airplane to be kept light. You will find that most of the work has been done for you. The pushrods are pre-made to the correct lengths and the hinges are pre-installed. Includes extra scale features such as wing guns, drop tanks, antenna, and operating navigation lights. Includes fixed landing gear - using same mounting as optional electric rotating retracts.

sky raider
i havent finished this plane yet. there are ononav lites. the covering is not tight every where. the instructions are not in good order , for instance it shows mounting the fuel tank and then the ignition. it cant be done as shown becouse the tank retainer has already been installed.i didnt like the fact u need 2 channels to run flaps. Im not saying its a bad model. Im new to this, this is only my 2nd arf. ive built a phoenix corsair before this. being new, it is helpfull when the manufacture makes component recommendations. there are many other things that i don't care for. I do like the look of the model, I don't have it finished yet. I hope to have it done soon, and I will update this review. But i will say I might not build another arf. there are places where the wood is so thin that u can tell the wood is broken under the coating. i hope it fly's . But again I'm new so maybe all this stuff is normal. happy flying everyone I hope this review is helpful.
