Description

Small and compact, the US Navy Scout Bombers went against the trend and did not use folding wings common in planes of the era. This saved weight and removed weak points to keep the aircraft stable while dive bombing. The SBD stands for Scout Bomber Douglas, named after Donald Douglas, the founder of Douglas Aircraft Company (DAC) who navigating engineering manufacture through the 1930s.


The SBD Dauntless used innovative dive brakes with a perforated split allowing them to also function as flaps during take off and landing. When fully extended, the split flaps allowed the plane to dive at an angle of up to 80° with a terminal velocity of around 250 knots. Used as a naval scout and dive bomber, the Dauntless could hit a moving ship or ground target easily.


Relive history with this radio-controlled plane that's almost ready to fly (ARF). The SBD Dauntless is ideal as your 2nd or 3rd hobby plane, allowing you to choose between a nitro or electric powered engine. The unique design uses split flaps and comes with pre-installed servoless retracts with Oleo legs.


Made of lightweight balsa and plywood, the Scout Bomber features a fibreglass cowling, printed PVC covering and detachable wings for easy transportation. The detailed model allows you to create a detailed cockpit interior and includes two pre-painted pilots with machine guns. Use the included decals to complete the SBD-5 Dauntless design and prepare for take off.

overall quite a nice kit, and it comes with electric retracts - but there are a couple of things that let it down...firstly be aware that while the wheels are on the retracts, they are not fixed on ( no circlips ) and they need a means to fix them on and that wasnt supplied. Minor , easy fix - BUT the main issue I had is that the dive brakes have a very poorly designed setup that uses only a lite ply horn to connect them to the servo - BAD idea - they can not take the strain and they fail - I had to redo them all with alloy horns...overall though a nice kit, flies on 4 cells
Had an issue with the wing connecting ply joiner too - it was too long and didnt allow the wings to seat to the centre section ....had to be cut down.

Needed a small warbird to fly at a club that has limited space. The general build quality is good. However some points to note.
1. The axle's have no flat ground on them. Also need loctite on them.
2. The split dive brakes have a small thin bit of soft lightply used to actuate them. Mine lasted about 4 cycles before they started to break. For now I have them fixed in the closed position ready for another attempt. Ball links and fibreglass board used to make new hinges and links.
