first look - 3/10/11
E-Scales Pilatus PC-21, first shown at Nuremburg is now finally here. It's a 36" (911mm) span machine, moulded using EPO foam and complete with retracts, seven servos and a power system that includes an impressive 5-blade prop. A 1650 mAh Li-Po is in the box too.
It's an unusual machine at first glance where all the angles seem wrong, incidences and thrust lines too. Distributor J.Perkins tell us she flies well though and early user reports confirm this although it remains to be seen how well the undercarriage stand up to the rigours of a grassy British flying field.
The listed RRP is £149.99 at all good model shops and there's more info at the distributor website.
