With it's distinctive wing shape and classic good looks, it's no wonder the Stinson Reliant has been such a popular subject with aero modelers over the years, this nice sized model is will not only look fantastic in the air, it's sure to draw admiring glances on the flightline!
The nicely constructed airframe is both tough and practical and has been expertly pre-covered in an attractive colour scheme, which is not only good for orientation, it also gives the Stinson a classic era look, for the final touch, the glass fibre cowl and wheel pants are finished in a matching deep gloss paint. The Stinson is very practical and features heavy duty landing gear and plug in wings for ease of transport, for easy access to the interior, not only can you remove the front canopy section, the side doors are also hinged! This is perfect for field assembly and also for those who may want to fly this superb model using electric power.
With such a generous wing and light wing loading, the Stinson is a pleasure to fly, it has presence in spades yet won't cost a fortune to build, it is a solid, practical and stunning looking sport model that can be flown from most strips, a great model from the Golden Age of Aviation, a must for scale fans!

I just got the HK Stinson. I bought the plane from the U.S. warehouse in Oregon and had it shipped to Texas. Shipping cost was a little more than I had expected @ $80.
1. My canopy is cracked in three places and needs to be replaced. Will contact HK. Paint on the removable canopy DOES not match the film covering. Canopy was not glued to the ply frame in about 75pcnt of the structure.
2. Doors ARE NOT hinged but are bolted to the fuse after you assemble the plane. Can be hinged with some additional effort.
3. There is not one shred of paper in the box that provides basic info like CG, suggested cowl mounting details. VERY POOR attention to detail.
4. Doors DO NOT fit in the openings. They are about 1/16" too large. Can be sanded down to fit.
5. There is NO spare covering for an emergency. The removable canopy has no blue stripes on it to match the fuse and there is no covering to trim the canopy so that it will match the fuse.
6. Canopy CAN NOT be removed with the cowling on. Cowling MUST be removed before you can remove the canopy.
7. Covering is reasonably good but not done very well on top of the fuse and is not stuck to the fuse around the doors, windows and wing/stab tubes.
8. Coarseness of he balsa used on the construction is visible due to the lack of sanding prior to covering.BLOS NICHT KAUFEN!!!!!!
die qualitt der stinsin ist das letzte! ich habe ein Video hochgeladen, um euch den mist zu verdeutlichen. Ich habe schon die gesammte frontsection mit 24H epoxy beschichtet, in der Hoffnung dadurch etwas mehr stabilitt zu bekommen. Wenn das verwendete Holz anstndig verleimt gewesen wre, wre dem sicherlich auch so. Die schichten des Holzes haben sich getrennt, dadurch ist auch jede werksmige verklebung berflssig.
Bei meiner ersten landung (die wirklich sehr sanft, langsam und weich war) ist die gesammte front abgebrochen. Die bruchstelle ist rirekt hinter der Fahrwerksaufnahme. An der bruchstelle ist zu sehen, dass alles nur auf sto geleimt wurde. Die drei streben, die die front und das heck zusammenhalten sind einfach zu schwach bemessen! Meine Vereinskollegen und ich sind uns nun der meinung, dass mit dem flieger Leib und leben gefhrdet werden, da dieser bruch auch schon in der luft bei einem etwas strkeren manver htte zustande kommen knnen!
Seht euch das Video unter der "Videos" sektion an und macht eich selbst ein bild. Ich kann auch von dem Kauf nur abraten!Aereo molto bello appena ricevuto e anche la spedizione veloce con gls in italia 3 giorni lavorativi. Al primo impatto ricoperto molto bene e comprende tutto. L unica pecca forse il serbatoio troppo piccolo per chi monta un 26cc o un 30cc come me dunque consiglio almeno da 500cl o oltre per volare pi di 10 min...il manuake manca ma ho ovvuato scaricando quello del jamara 120 su google ed uguale aspettando magari hk che lo carica nei file....comunque ottimo prodotto per il prezzo tot con spedizione....far altri post appena lo porto in volo per le varie valutazioni. Grazie HK ottimo!!!Habe diesen Flieger gekauft bin soweit zufrieden, bis auf das keine Bauanleitung dabei war.
Wenn einer wei wo ich fr diesen Flieger eine Anleitung, nit Angaben von Schwerpunkt.....usw bekomme bitte Melden
Gru ErichIf u need a manual to build any plane u need to get out of the hobby sick of seeing people bitch about not having a manual really learn how to buildI finished assembly and have two flights as of today. Plane handles well and the DLE 30 pulls it nicely at 1/3 throttle. Landings are extremely stable and the plane can really slow down. Stalls are predictable and recovery is very easy. All in all a nice plane and easy to build even though there are no plans.No build instructions at all came with the plane but it looks fairly easy to figure out. What I need help with is how to install the tail gear, set the CG and the control surface throws. Anyone who has one built and is flying please post any info you have and I will do the same as I build mine. Going to use a DLE30, 18x6 Zoar prop, Heavy duty Sullivan control rods, dual 2500 5 cell Nimh packs, 3.5 low bounce Dubro Wheels, opto kill switch, standard high torque metal gear servos.Arrived intact although the box was beat up badly. No instructions in the box. Looks like its built pretty well, looking forward to getting my DLE-30 on it and fly.
