The DH Beaver is of course famous for it's STOL capability, load capacity and general ruggedness and fans of the Beaver will be pleased to see this larger version of our popular 40" kit.
This nicely made ARF is a pleasure to build and features a removable wing, easy access magnetic battery hatch, large lightweight wheels, steerable tail wheel and so on. A choice of motor mounts come with the kit as does a very comprehnsive hardware kit. This model being a little bigger means of course it will cope with the wind just that little bit better but either size Beaver is perfect for those calm, relaxing days at the field.

Los mandos de profundidad y de cola son muy imprecisos y difciles de montar.
Para montar la rueda de cola hay que cortar el fuselaje y reforzar la zona para atornillar la base de plstico.
La madera es muy dbil.
Los servos que lleva no son los mini.
El oracover es aceptable y las ruedas son pequeas y de mala calidad.
No lo recomiendo.This is my second beaver, nice slow flyer, Stable. But the balsa ply construction is very light especially around the landing struts both planes broke in same spot. Needs a bit of strengthening in this area. Also the instructions where useless.For $66 this is a good buy. Mine was in good condition out of the box. I used a 3536, 900kv motor with a 35a ESC and 3 blade 11x9 prop. That is overpowered. After a lot of fooling around with the cg it flies well and is easy to land. Not for a beginner.This plane is really not for beginners. After a hard assembly, flying this plane is for professionals, i can say this after nine 5 minute flyes. Its dangerous and instable with wind, rudder needed all the time!!! Even so, its a bealtiful plane!The plane came in about two weeks all the parts was their
Easy to put together in about one day , the test flight was great , need a little up elevator but other than that it fly great . I use a 9 7prop, 40amp esc and 3s lipo and a GH2215-15 out runner from Grayson hobby , more than enough power for this plane.....Despus de varios vuelos les puedo comentar que es un buen avin de vuelo estable algo rpido y no creo sea para principiantes, le cambie las ruedas mas grandes, cambie el sistema original que viene de fabrica del elevador y timn por el sistema que todos conocemos, reforc con epoxy lo que considere reforzar, agregue dos taquitos mas aparte del que sujeta el ala, con la configuracin que le puse hago casi cualquier cosa. El manual viene con informacion suficiente.

Gracias HK.Once again Hobbyking has delivered my plane with a dammaged cowl. Whats up HK??????? the 2nd time now and no answers or replacements?I guy's! Just received this Beaver! All pieces in box and no dammages to these pieces. Construction manual included...............BUT......You will have to have some experiences for building this airplane. Manual not to good for new flyers. I do have 25 years in building airplanes but I do have to say that this one is special. Be aware of what You will do because You can be easily confuse. I'm almost at 50pcnt complete and I do have to use all my knownlege to complete the rear-end. I will let You known when completed. MDI built this using the recommended Motor/Batt/ESC and I used a 9x7 3-bladed prop. The balance poing of 60 mm behind the LE of the wing leaves the model tail heavy. I added weights to the nose get it to 60MM, but I'll try to add more to move it to 55MM and see what happens. The build is easy and everything in the kit is perfect.
My main problem with flying is the Adverse Yaw. When I try to use the ailerons only to turn it is sooo bad that on left aileron, the model corkscrews to the right! I almost crashed it before I realized what was happening and then used rudder to make my turns. I'll bet I can tie the rudder to the aileron to fix the problem. Maybe it is tied to the CG location that is making it worse, but I have NEVER had a plane do this before. Overall it is a beautiful plane that once it's set up properly should be a great addition to your collection.Arrived fast! 2 days to my door. Kit was in perfect condition, missing nothing.
Motor: Exceed Rocket-3015-1035kv (reversed shaft and used 3/4" standoffs from ace hardware to allow the prop to clear the cowl)
Esc: 40 amp 3 amp bec
Prop Master airscrew electric 8x6
Servos: I used 9g servos (had to make adaptors because the servo cutouts were to large for 9g servos). You will need 2 300mm servo extensions and a y adaptor.
Battery: 2200 3s zippy, gives 10 min of scale flying.
This plane flys great, take off require good ground speed before liftoff to avoid a wing dip untill you build airspeed, landings are easy, floats back to earth with minimal effort. Great ARF KIT!
