The whirlwind first flew in 1938 and was used primarily for low-level combat and ground attack.
The model has a 48″ (124cm) wing span the prototypes weighing in at around 49ozs all up.
It requires 2 x 400 electric motors with 1 x 7 cell 2000 battery pack. This provides ample power but the airframe will accept equivalent motor and battery combinations. Also, requires a 3 channel radio with mini servos + speed controller.
The kit includes 3 part foam venereed wings and ailerons. 3 part vac formed nacelles, top deck, nose cone, fin, servo tubs and clear canopy dummy exhausts.
Most parts are CNC cut or pre-shaped. Also horns, quick links etc. are included.
