The Bright E-Flite PT-17

The primary trainer plane for the U.S. Army Air Corps, the original Stearman PT-17 was frequently used in the lead-up to WWII and is now one of the most recognisable biplanes. E-Flite have brilliantly recreated this famed aircraft in this easy-to-assemble 15-size RC plane. Just like the E-Flite Leader, the PT-17 is constructed from balsa and plywood. The PT-17 has a great biplane design, similar to the Fokker DVII, and is covered with an accurate early-WWII UltraCote trim scheme. It also offers scale details including a painted fibreglass cowl, landing gear fairings and a 9-cylinder dummy radial engine. Thanks to the planes plug-in wings and bolt-in interplane struts, assembling this model will be really straightforward. E-Flite have also included specially-designed jigs that let you keep the upper and lower halves connected for easier transportation and storage. With its flat airfoils and light wing loading, you will find that the E-Flite PT-17 is a joy to fly. Please note that this plane comes almost-ready-to-fly, so there are several items you will need to complete the model. Please refer to the What You Need section below for more details. If you are a fan of scale RC planes, you cannot go past the E-Flite PT-17. Order yours now.
