Realistic recreation of the 1920’s Schneider Cup racer! High quality ARF seaplane can be flown as EP or GP!
The dramatic era of seaplane racing at the dawn of the airplane age was symbolized in the chase for the Schneider Cup and is talked about even to this day. At that time seaplanes were faster than land-based aircraft and Italy’s Macchi was one of the top guns. Amongst these aircraft, the M33 flying boat competed on equal terms against more advanced seaplanes with suspended floats. The historically significant M33 captured the hearts of seaplane fans and has been faithfully recreated in 1/8.5 scale with high precision FRP fuselage and balsa main wing. With the tricolor of the M39 to represent its Italian heritage, this model has been revived as a 30-class model. However, the design is compatible with both electric (EP) and gas engine (GP) power sources. While faithful to the original, this model has also been optimized to deliver stable flight performance with the unique high position of the power source. Almost fully factory assembled, only a short time is required for completion so you can enjoy the nostalgia and majestic form of this realistic recreation of the Macchi seaplane as its graces the skies once more.
