    Pilot-1 PA-12 1/8 Scale ARF



    ACW812 Pilot-1 PA-12 1/8 Scale ARF

    A great flying Piper that isn't a J-3
    53-1/4" wingspan, 39-1/2" long, 360 sq. in. wing area, 34 oz. flying weight. The baby brother to our 1/4 scale PA-12, one half the size but retains the fun and great scale looks. All laser cut balsa and plywood construction, pre-built and pre-decorated, can be assembled and ready-to-fly in a matter of hours. Covered in genuine Oracover for great looks now and in the future. Step-by-step photo illustrated instructions will guide even the relative novice through the build process to a successful conclusion. While not suitable for the complete novice, the little PA-12 is a very easy to fly airplane. It does not exhibit any bad tendencies and is totally predictable in flight performance. Flight times of 15 minutes plus are the norm. While not an aerobatic airplane, the PA-12 is capable of loops and rolls and inverted flight (not something you would try in a full scale one). Includes pre-bent and assembled landing gear, fiberglass cowl, steerable tail wheel, windshield and side glass, wing struts, wheels and hardware pack. For 4-channels: Ailerons (2 channels), Elevator, Rudder and Throttle. A radio with end point, exponential, and rudder mixing is recommended.

    What a sweet plane. Looks, style and airborne characteristics make this a winner in so many ways. One of the things I like most about the PA-12 is the way it handles on the the ground. The take-offs and landings are as scale like as you can get. Also the little plane is big.

    Can the PA-12 be safely hand launched?

    I've never tried it, but it probably can be hand launched. It will fly off regular cut grass just fine too.

    It's an easy handlaunch with a good grip area just behind the landing gear on the belly.

    I found the weak spot on this plane it is the plywood motor mount box. One prop strike at half throttle or more, with the recommended AXi and the torque tears it up bad. I just hope Hobby-Lobby stocks extra fuselages.

    We'll have spare parts for everything soon. We can probably get you fixed up. Call one of our sales guys up.
