The GeeBee R2 draws a crowd wherever it goes. Even more so in a 120 size fiberglass version! This model comes as an ARF and includes water decals pre applied under the clear gel coat as well as the lettering seen in the image. The landing gear is completed with beautiful wheel pants and 5mm spring steel struts. This is a very exciting model for pilots familiar with fast models. As this is a fiberglass kit, it is a builders model and takes around 4-5hrs to complete.

For everyone looking for a excellent instruction manual for the Gee Bee 1.20. Just go to Gerat Planes Models web site. And look up the Gee Bee 120 (discontinued model G/B 120 model). Then you can down load it. It's Great!
I live in Upstate New York so it had to travel across the entire country to get to me. The box was 48x20x20 and the shipping sticker said 22 pounds. Just for kicks I did a reverse shipping quote on UPS (I work for a car dealer and we ship via UPS every day) from my zip code back to the origin with that same package size and weight and it kicked back a $79.00 estimate. FedEx ground was only a few dollars less. It's "oversize" and not feather light so it's just not a cheapie to ship. I don't feel that I was ripped off at all with the shipping. I do wish it had been closer to home though...
ihave the great planes GEE BEE and this looks to be the same damn thing, maybe if you want to get the info from the GPwebsight of this just make sure its the same size , the CG is very inportant on the GPmodel i think its like 22%from LE. IT flys rock solid (the gp)
Hello everyone, I just received my HK Gee Bee 120 and it too has no instructions or manual of any kind. I found where you can download it on the Hobby King site. It's over on one of the other Gee Bee product pages. If you go to the Gee Bee 120 product page here: www.link and scroll down towards the bottom there are four tabs you can click on (Discussion, Reviews, Videos, and Files). That's the area where I found this discussion. If you click on the "Files" tab you will see Part 1 and Part 2 of the manual available to download in PDF format. It's a fairly useless manual but it does have a few fuzzy photos that answered a couple of my questions and it does indicate where the CG should be and shows a control throw or two. Better than nothing and I'm sure that's all we're gonna get... Peace, Peter
Just got mine yesterday* now if that darn RCG30 will just make it through the system. Materials and workmanship look nice* but I think I'll be going dual elevator servos using pushrods and CF tube for guides instead of that wood stick method shown in the manual.
THIS IS FUNNY the guy that started this thread was asking the wieght and everyone is talking about how ugly this is and the canopy. the wieght would be about 10lbs i beleve. i flew this and its great all the GEE BEE'S are and if its setup right it can be as fast as you want to go.
JIMMY DOOLITTLE use to fly this (THE TOPSON TROPHY WINNER) IN THE 30THIRYS ALONG WITH OTHER HITORICEL PLANES.
This GeeBee 120 kit is absolutely stunning. I closely inspected every part very carefully and the quality was impeccable. The fuselage, cowl and wheel pants are composed of the highest quality fiberglass & resin (they obviously use the vacuum molding process) and the wings, stabilzer/elevator & rudder are constructed with professionally covered balsa. The entire plane is professionally painted and the decals are incredibly to scale. Everything was finished with a show quality sprayed final clear coat.
Will I buy another one? Well, yes I already bought 2 more for spares, just in case the GeeBee proves to be as challenging to master, as some claim. For those that have, they say that it is their favorite plane to fly, over all others, and it never ceases to stop turning the heads of the most seasoned pilots when it shows up.
I only found one con to the kit and it was the instructions, which are mostly pictures. The work around is that there are pdf files out there on building 120 class GeeBees if you search. There are also very detailed threads on RCUniverse.com, with loads of information. This is not a kit for the faint of heart, as the flying wires and landing gear are an art that each pilot will add their own originality to in the final construction. As you will see from studying the many construction threads that are out there, many varying approaches have been

The quality of this product ranks as top of the line IMO. My only complaint is there's no manual or any docs whatsoever. I didn't even get the pictures. It seems to be the way now for the Chinese manufacturers to save a few bucks but at least put the thing online so we can download it. No dice. If you have a lot of ARF experience you can probably figure it out but if you don't you would be well advised to stay away from this offering.

I ordered the GeeBee R2 from the USA warehouse and accepted the $80 shipping costs as the price for shipping a large box from Oregon to Georgia. An order was also placed for the engine from China. This kit has a very nice glass fuse, cowling, wheel pants and well built wing and tail. The moveable rudder, hardware, landing gear and instructions are awful.
I used the recommended RCGF 30 cc engine, also from HobbyKing along with their 18X8 prop. The engine has been an absolute joy to run and fits the GeeBeeR2 very well.
The plane takes a lot of time, and thought to assemble correctly. It shouldn't be classified as an ARF but more as a kit. A complete build along with photographs can be found here: www.link was the first flight. The instructions do have a CG indicated at 80mm which is close to 25pcnt of the chord. All up mine weighs 12.5 lbs. it flies very well but requires considerable expertise on take off and landing. At low speeds it has a vicious snap and mine rolls right on a stall. The first landing was too slow. The landing stall caused minor cosmetic damage but it did convince me to land faster next time.
Overall it is a beautiful plane that requires skill and vigilance to fly well. Pretty much what Delmar Benjamin said about the real one.
