In real life, the AAI RQ-7 Shadow is a battlefield UAV used by the armed forces of Australia, Italy, Sweden, the United States and others to provide a reconnaissance, surveillance and as a target acquisition platform.
Over 500 RQ-7 Shadows are in operational use throughout the world carrying electro-optic/infrared imaging sensors and having a range of over 100km and a 4-hour on-target loiter time. The specifications also required the UAV to be able to land in a sports field.
Our RQ-7 Shadow can't offer a 4 hour duration or a 100km range, but it is certainly a fantastic FPV platform with all of the highly practical features of the full size, including the aerodynamically proven inverted V-tail, twin boom layout, center-mounted pusher motor, fixed tricycle undercarriage and the huge central nacelle giving a clear view for your cameras and sensors.
For the scale enthusiasts among us the kit builds into quite an accurate representation of the full-size Shadow and, at 2000mm wingspan the large scale enthusiasts won't be disappointed either as this one is very nearly 1/2 scale!
The kit features a full set of components, laser cut from highest quality balsa and ply to make construction as fast, accurate and enjoyable as possible. A full accessory pack, leaving you with adhesives and covering material to provide in order to finish the model.
