The Gloster Gladiator was a British-built biplane fighter, it was used by the Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm during the late 1930s. It was the RAF's last, and ultimate biplane fighter airplane to be manufactured, but it was also the first to feature an enclosed cockpit.

The Gloster Gladiator is an unusual and rarely modeled subject. The Durafly version of this iconic biplane is a replica of the Shuttleworth Collections Gloster Gladiator Mk1 "K9785", believed to be the only airworthy example flying in the world today. "K9785" depicts the markings of No. 73 Squadron that operated Gloster Gladiators at RAF Mildenhall in England from 1937 to 1938.

The model is manufactured in strong EPO foam, to the usual high standards you have come to expect from this range of RC airplanes. As with most other Durafly models, it comes "Plug N Fly". This means it is supplied with an easy-to-assemble airframe, powerful pre-installed 3719-770KV brushless motor, Aerostar 40A ESC, and 4 pre-installed 9g digital servos. A vinyl decal sheet is included, these will need to be applied during the building process, this gives you the choice of using the silver finish as a base for creating your own color scheme. Once the model is assembled, all you require is your choice of 4ch or more receiver and a 2200mAh 4S (14.8V) LiPo battery.

The attention to detail is superb from the blistered cowl, scale exhausts, and scale streamlined landing gear with large diameter scale wheels. The ribbed wings, tail, and stringered fuselage depict a fabric-covered airframe, and blistered machine gun housings make this a model you will be proud to own. Scale flying wires are also supplied, the model can be flown with or without them but they do add that realistic scale touch to the Gladiator.

The Gladiator has very benign handling characteristics with an almost non-existent stall, and at half power, it flies very scale-like. At full power it becomes a very agile and aerobatic sports model, big loops, axial rolls, and even knife-edge can be performed, it is great fun to fly. So it is not only for the scale buffs, it will also appeal to the sports pilots as well.

The 1930s was the golden age of aviation, capture these halcyon days with the beautiful Durafly Gloster Gladiator.

Lovely model

Dec 04, 2022

Really am enjoying this model. I did a full repaint into a 1940 camouflage scheme. The plane has good power and performance. I do recommend doing the rigging with elastic thread as mentioned by Tom Hunt in the RCG thread on this plane.

Great plane get it now!

I waited for 3or4months for the Gladiator to be available in the US, I was not disappointed. I saw Adam’s review on ModelAV8R and I was sold. If you like aerobatic scale biplanes youl love it on 4S 22or 2500mah batteries. Have fun, I am!!

Great plane, but shipping cost !!!!!

Oct 23, 2022

A great little plane. Easy to put together, flies well with a bit of rudder mixed in, and looks realistic in the air. The only problem was with the rigging wires as the holes in the brackets were all blocked or covered by the struts. Shipping costs to AU are very high, so be careful to check this.

Beautiful rendition of an iconic fighter. Flying mine on a 3300 4S after repositioning the ESC. Flies as good as it looks.

Très beau modéle

Oct 16, 2022

Le montage se fait facilement. Les cables dans les ailes ne sont pas évidente à mettre en place, mais donne un look très maquette à l'avion.
Attention, il faut un fer à repasser pour coller les décalcomanies, elles ne sont pas déja collé aux différentes parties.
Je n'ai pas encore eu l'occasion de le faire voler, donc je ne connais pas sa solidité sur le terrain.

Pleasantly surprised

Oct 02, 2022

I’m really impressed with the quality on this one. I haven’t flown this model yet but the kit looks fantastic and is a much more detailed model than I was anticipating. Much higher quality that I expected

Review so far, model waiting to be flow.

Sep 11, 2022

A long journey for this model and quite a surprise when it landed at the Leicester Hub and I had to pay another fee of £48.56 bringing the total price to £314 90.
The model arrived satisfactory all parts where complete and using the on line manual went together very well. 3 small holes in the poly molding on the top wing. the model, looks very good and 43 inch wing span is a very practical size. unfortunately it remains on my workbench as I wait delivery of two 14v 4 cell batteries from a local shop, these are very rare in the UK at present. I'm hoping they will arrive on the 12 September, then I hope it will not be to long before I take it to the flying field. and then will be able to complete this review.
