The Limited Edition Kingcraft Super Stearman is a beautifully finished and highly detailed scale model of this powerful aerobatic biplane. The Stearman is provided in an almost ready to fly format and with some specific assembly procedures to follow. Because of this, it is recommended for modelers with previous ARF assembly experience. Once built you will be rewarded with a stunning looking airplane that performs just like the full size when used with a 1200~1300W motor and 6S Lipoly battery. The detailing includes a realistic dummy engine, raised panels, authentic instrument panel, scale cockpit with pilot, detailed rigging, and dummy oleo struts, all this adds a touch of ultimate realism. Due to this being a "Limited Edition" there is only a certain number of kits available, so don't delay in acquiring one of these beautiful models to add to your collection.

Kingcraft has faithfully reproduced Susan Dacy's "Big Red" Super Stearman which is fitted with a fire-breathing supercharged 450hp Pratt and Whitney engine, this completely transformed its aerobatic capabilities over the original trainer version. The model is constructed mainly of balsa and plywood which is then finished in a high-quality covering leaving only the decals to be applied. Scale details such as the turtle deck, raised paneling, cowl, wheel pants, etc are made from either fiberglass sheet or fiberglass moldings. A very complete hardware pack is supplied which includes a polished aluminum spinner, main wheels, steerable tailwheel assembly, complete RC linkage set, nuts and bolts, and anything else necessary to complete the model. You will only require, glue, motor, ESC, battery, and RC equipment.

Due to the Stearman having a very short nose, a unique removable fiberglass battery tray has been designed to allow the battery to be installed as far forward as possible. This tray is held in place with a thumbscrew and removes the need for any extra ballast to obtain the correct C of G. To fit the aluminum spinner you will require a brushless motor with a reversed shaft, please see related products for the recommended Propdrive motor.

Not happy with this fligher

Mar 07, 2021

I’m wondering why people recommend this Stearman. Yes, there are some nice details but the whole build was such a shit. It’s easier to build a new plane from balsa than fix all the bugs at this ARF plane.

Feb 20, 2021

Overall I like the plane the aluminum struts one was too short the motor you recommended does not reach to the front of the cowl
Be prepared to put in a few hours into this build around 10 for me

A quality kit. Not for the average builder.

Feb 18, 2021

Disappointed that only one motor is available for this plane and not in stock. You may consider showing a purchase with all available components so someone may be able to purchase as a total package.

battery compartment too small

Feb 17, 2021

2 wing tubes-1 long and 1 short. Instructions say short tube to top wing and long to bottom wing. Don't work that way. You must trim some of the upper landing gear strut to make the upper fairing work. This airplane is a replica of the aerobatic pilot Susan Dacy. Then why is a male pilot included? Battery compartment a little small. Anything larger than a 4000 6s won't fit. You cannot use the provided battery strap because that adds too much to the size. Nice thing that the battery is mounted on a removable mount held in by a thumb screw. A beautiful airplane when fully assembled. Nice job on the covering. Not flown as yet due to winter time.

Hobby King 1400mm Stearman arrived on Surrey Hills!

Feb 16, 2021

An excellent model except for the over weight and clumsy flying wires. Now changed for more appropriate stainless stranded wire. See the RC Group Stearman forum to guage consensious of opinion. Hobby King..please make another classic model as good as the Stearman. A great model only slightly let down by small details.
