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 looking plane, nose gear weak

Jun 27, 2022

I love the plane, it flies very well, excellent power. The front retractable system is weak and breaks quickly, the pin that it has on the hook towards the servo is the weakest point of the plane. My suggestion is to change it for a more robust one from the beginning. For the rest, I assure you that you will enjoy flying it.

Agony and Exstacy

Jun 22, 2022

Agony: The problem started as early as the ordering process. It took me several times to navigate and complete the order and then shipping took forever. When the plane finally arrived, it was packaged well. That's when it really got bad. There were a number of parts that did not fit properly. I had to carve and sand to get them to fit; and then there is the wing tips. They were a great idea however they didn't fit.
I had to spend several hours carving and shaping to get them to work.
Now for the Exstacy: Once I got all through those problems, the plane is one of the nicest looking and best flying planes I've ever had. HobbyKing please get your act together!
I am not a stranger to Hobbyking, I have an albatrosse V1, not so good, the big B17, very nice, and a Grand Tundra, one of my best planes.
I belong to Moonport Modelers club of Titusville, Fl. and we are all aware of each others airplanes. Keep this in mind when you come out with new models.

Low quality servos

May 15, 2022

Airplane looks great, but the servos are a weakness, you must check them several times before the maiden. On my model, the right flap servo was damaged. It moves to take off position, but it didnt return to neutral, the left servo worked fine. This problem caused a collision, total damaged. Hobby King didnt accept/cover the warranty. Please we aware to check al servos.

This is a beautiful model. good quality foam and excellent finish. Wing tips needed a little fettling, but apart from that it was very easy to assemble. Love it

Wing ends may need some attention in order to snap them into the main wing

What a beautiful airplane, I can't wait to get it into the air when spring arrives. The wing connecters were 1.5mm out and would never have fitted, but I didn't want to start cutting the wings about so I filed a millimetre off the plastic tab. When I tried the ailerons however, they would not work as the male and female connectors were not making good contact. I removed the fixing screws and inserted a small washer between the connector and the fuselage wing end. Result, good connection, this area does need looking at as apparently a lot of people have had this problem.

Nice model but could be better.

Jan 20, 2022

Model went together well, however fell down with the wing joiners. These joiners don’t lock into place without considerable force and even then can pop out/unlock, I had one unlock mid flight resulting in only having one aileron working which made it tricky to land during fairly windy conditions.
A good model let down by a simple poorly designed device.

Bel avion mais quelques défauts

Jan 13, 2022

Servos de volets non fixés
Hélices très fragiles ,3 cassées en 15 jours au décollage.
Capots moteurs très fragiles, abîmés par les hélices qui cassent, j'ai renforcé par un couche de fibres de verre à l'intérieur, c'est mieux.
Moteurs tenus avec des vis non serrées, acheteurs vérifiez avant de voler!
