The incredible Avios C-130 is back with two new hi-viz, vibrant, and lighter in weight color schemes, plus a host of other improvements. The improvements on the V2 are mainly aimed at reducing weight to improve the slow-flight handling characteristics. Like the original version, the C-130 V2 is completed to the highest level of scale detail, has a 1600mm wingspan, and measures over a meter in length.

Beloved worldwide, this versatile American four-engine turboprop aircraft has been used in many guises over its long period in service. Originally it was designed as a troop, and cargo transport aircraft, but very quickly found uses in a variety of other roles.

The Avios C-130 V2 is available in two brand new color schemes, the classic US Coast Guard scheme of hi-viz orange and white with scale decals, or a typical civilian cargo plane scheme in red, white, and blue. Both stand out really well in all skies, and both schemes are lighter in weight than previous versions. Features include pre-installed motors, ESCs, servos, retract landing gear with door sequencer, working cargo door, cabin light, nav lights, etc. The V2 also includes an improved rudder pushrod system with a rear-mounted servo which is lighter, and more direct. The wings are removable for transport and they include a quick-connect/disconnect plug and socket for servos, lights, and power. Assembly is fast and straightforward, it simply screws together, no gluing is required.

AVIOS presents the only true scale representation of the mighty C-130 turboprop aircraft, and in its V2 form, they are even better to fly. As the full-size has been a familiar sight around the world for many years, these striking Avios scale models are also destined to become a familiar sight at model flying fields all over the world. Enjoy the look, the sound, and all the fantastic scale features of the Avios C-130 V2 4 engine turboprop.

Improvements of the Avios C-130 V2:
• Two brand new hi-viz, vibrant and lightweight color schemes
• Improved direct pushrod rudder linkage with rear-mounted rudder servo
• Flap geometry has been improved to achieve more movement
• Reduced wiring and no surplus deadweight in airframe
• A reduction in overall weight giving much improved slow-speed handling characteristics

Finally got it

Oct 05, 2022

Well after the item went to both Iraq warzone and Qatar for tourism it finally showed up here at the army base. Luckily after it arrived in Iraq warzone it was FINALLY scanned in as no one knew it was even in transit from America until it’s scanning for OUTBOUND mail from Iraq to go to Qatar. Love the details on the plane the packaging also protected it because there was a puncture of the double packed cardboard box. No contents were affected. All in all a quality purchase. Just please HobbyKing if we are going to pay upwards of $180-$200 USD for shipping please allow us to choose someone who for that price can effectively do the right job. FedEx, DHL, Passenger Pigeon etc, but USPS really isn’t the one anymore.

absolutely amazing model

Oct 01, 2022

i was always waiting to find a multi-engine that would be right up my alley and this was the one after seeing the petrincic bros fly theirs.
i have like 99% great things to say, this thing flies wonderful and i fly this scale, so i appreciate the dual flaps to help it REALLY slow down. i actually fly mine on 3s power rather than the recommended 4s because i have no desire to go vertical and have all that power.
when my model shipped, the props were damaged - they LOOK stunning but the molded in spinners were crumbling away. so i do not know if this was an open box or not, but hobbyking thankfully was quick to send me replacement propellers from the V1 hercules and these spinners appear to be made of a much better plastic. the v2 ones, at least that i had, were almost rubbery feeling. plus no screws were included, so thankfully when HK sent the v1 props, they also sent new prop bolts as well.
my only other complaint is i paid $400 for this, and just a few weeks later HK has dropped the price to $300... so yeah, that's a bummer, but as a model- i cannot recommend it enough. avios and HK really hit a home run with this!
flies for 6 mins on a 3s 2200mah, on my futaba FASST setup with 8 channel RX and stock xt60 connectors.

Very well done

Jul 21, 2022

I found this model to be a well done and worthwhile purchase. Had a few 'hick ups', but nothing major. Very pleased with the finished product. Fly's great, super to look at, and demands attention! Follow the directions to assemble and don't get 'ham fisted' with it, and you won't have any problems.

super plane and great price

Jun 05, 2022

Delivery was only a couple of days. Packing great with not even a nick. Graphics all done. Went together easily. The ramp set up was a challenge but I figured it out. Flies scale.

Great value

Jun 02, 2022

Pros: Easy to assemble at field thanks to automatic connections when wings are slid into place. Inexpenaive battery results in flight times over 5 minutes with 3.75 - 3.8 volts per cell after landing. Easy to land. Very realistic in air. Lots of fun to fly. Flies very well at low throttle settings. Can open cargo door in flight without much change in trim.
Cons: control board must be well secured in fuse, otherwise connections can pull lose. Happened to me with the gear:)

One of my beauties…

May 25, 2022

This plane is one of the nicest I‘ve got. It flies and lands smooth and easy (without gusts of course…). Assembly is suboptimal due to the servo linkages that need to be adjusted. The biggest point of criticism is the too soft front axle, which bends with every landing on grass. All in all I love this plane very much.

Avios HC130

May 22, 2022

Things I liked that prompted me to buy this:
Colour scheme, scale fidelity, attention to detail and, seemingly, a fair price.
Things I did not like:
The shipping cost to the UK.
Tracking the model from China to Japan to Cambodia, back to China and then on to France before, finally, arriving in the UK. Why not direct delivery?
The model is beautiful, very well made and I am blown away by it _ well done Avios and Hobby King!
Now Hobby King, please, sort out the insane shipping to the UK.

Love this aircraft, few issues to sort out with setup. Manuals could be better written with more information for novice enthusiasts.
