This great-looking and superb flying AVIOS KingTwin 1700 sports/scale model is based on a small twin-turboprop and is very reminiscent of the type used by the military or civilian charter airlines around the world. The simplistic, yet striking color scheme depicts the type of paint jobs commonly used on civilian propliners.

The KingTwin 1700 is packed full of cool features including LED lights, retracts, and split flaps. The powertrain of 2 x Aerostar 3748-820KV brushless outrunners with Aerostar 40A ESCs was chosen by the AVIOS team after careful testing. This combination of motors, ESCs, contra-rotating props, and a 4S LiPo battery proved to be the optimum setup for power and duration.

The KingTwin 1700 has the ability to operate happily off of smooth, short-grass fields, and of course hard runway surfaces. The split flaps enable scale take-offs and landings, and the daylight visible LED lights add that touch of realism.

For transportation, the outer wing panels feature a unique latching system that allows for quick and easy assembly and removal. This system also includes a quick connect/disconnect plug and socket for the servos and LED lights. Throughout, the KingTwin 1700 uses the very popular and reliable Turnigy HXT900 servos - this is a first for an Avios model. Due to the low parts count of the tough EPO airframe, and being PNF, the KingTwin 1700 is very quick and straightforward to put together, most of it has been pre-assembled at the factory.

The AVIOS KingTwin 1700 is fantastic to fly and looks brilliant in the air. It has excellent low-speed handling, and at speed, it really grooves and locks in. It's a real pleasure to fly. This impressive twin-engined model is a worthwhile addition to any modeler's hangar for its looks, ease of assembly, and excellent flight characteristics.

Great Flyer and Great Looker - Props??

Mar 28, 2024

I bought one of these after seeing one fly at the field - I love twins! It performed well on a 4S3300 and 4S3700, it could use a slightly bigger battery too. After I broke a prop and found that replacements weren't available I 3D printed an adapter to accommodate Master Airscrew 11x7 3-blade props and it flies even better now.
You do need to shave the wing lock clip tabs until they will securely snap in place but that's the only setup issue I had.

wing tips have to be shaved or retainer tabs to lock the tips onto the main wing. Great deal on sale . Too bad replacement props are backordered.

Good but has qc issues

Jan 20, 2023

Went together easy. Props are flimsy and not I'm stock. .wheels are sketchy and not very strong. Wiring cover was not stuck on at the factory and blew off in mid air. On both the planes I bought. Had to rescue both. Other than that love it. Flys great...

Great flyer

Jan 14, 2023

The king twin arrived quickly from USA warehouse.
Setup extremely easy.when I made my maiden flight, the the aircraft tracked down the runway perfectly.
After lift off the lower light/ wire cover flew off. Aircraft landed safely.second flight, landed and went onto the grass resulting in the steering rod bending.
Subsequent flights great. Bright LEDs show up great I bright daylight as well as dusk. This model is a keeper, it loves to fly even when on of the horizontal stabilizers departed in flight due to my improper gluing. She was still controllable and landed safely. WOO!
The only thing I wish is for spare props be in stock. The B17 (4 pack) props are a great substitute.

KingTwin 1700, Super nice model

Dec 28, 2022

The Avios KingTwin arrived in perfect condition. Setup was not very difficult. Maiden flight required very little adjustment on trimming the aircraft. No Elevator to Flap mix needed. Very impressed with that. Plane looks and flys very well scale. I swapped out the stock wheels for Dave Brown lite wheels to help smooth out those occasional not so perfect landings. Nothing wrong with the stock wheels. This was just my personal preference for this model. This is not a speed demon by know means but has more than enough power to perform basic loops and rolls. I liked it so much I purchased a second one for backup. I highly recommend it. :)

Impressive and scale Kingtwin.

Dec 15, 2022

Purchased this model after seeing it fly live in person at Birmingham RC. Just amazed of how quiet it was in flight and smooth on landings. Love the quick disconnect wing tips for ease of transport. Huge plus for me. My model required no trim in flight and no elevator to flap mix either. The scale look of this model blows me away. This is not a speed demon but I like it that way. I highly recommend it.

Minor flaws, but overall a great model at a great price.

Dec 01, 2022

At the sale price this is the bargain of the year. Good quality and an excellent flyer. Needs 3/16" cut off the end of the motor shafts and 1/16" trimmed off the wing tip locks. If it had spring landing gear it would be even better.
