VMAR DHC-6 Twin Otter EP ARF Kit (60.5" Wingspan)
Developed in 1965 via de Havilland Canada, this twin turbine DHC-6 was developed as the perfect STOL (Short Take Off and landing) aircraft to meet the demanding needs of commuter flight in the most hostile locales known to mankind. Rugged in design, the DHC-6 Twin Otter is a purpose built brute, capable of operating well beyond typical aircraft constraints and limitations. A testament to its superior capability, the DHC-6 holds the title of the only known aircraft to perform a South Pole rescue operation in brutal -60 degree freezing temperatures, setting apart this astonishing aircraft that is still in service to this very day.
Brought to life in epic form, VMAR brings scale detail to the fore, offering the DHC-6 Twin Otter in its native Canadian livery via vivid Polycote ECS covering that is pre-applied and ready to be built. Utilizing a bolt together, no glue assembly process, the DHC-6 Twin Otter can be assembled in hours, with an incredibly easy build process due to its simplified and time saving ARF design.
Utilizing a two piece wing design for ease of transport and storage, the DHC-6 utilizes full span ailerons driven by (1) servo per aileron for maximum levels of precision and control. Spanning 60.5" in length with a stable high wing design, the DHC-6 offers benign flying characteristics, with scale flight maneuverability and performance bolstered by twin brushless power.
Incorporating a durable balsa and ply construction, the DHC-6 Twin Otter utilizes a rugged scale tricycle landing gear that is ready for unimproved airstrips, with a twin motor system that offers incredible levels of power & performance. Designed for twin brushless motors as the power system of choice, the Twin Otter draws from its full scale twin turbine counterpart, providing epic levels of thrust for true STOL capability.
