Canberra 50 is a near scale model of the famous Canberra jet bomber for Electric Ducted Fan propulsion and 4-channel RC. Our model is of the Canberra B(I)8, a dedicated low level attack and nuclear strike variant that served in RAF Germany from 1956 to 1972.
The outline of the model is scale, the only real deviations from scale being the use of flat sheet tail sections to speed building and the engine pods, which have a slightly over scale diameter to allow a smaller model to be built around the 50mm fan units. This optimises thrust-to-weight ratio and ensures the model has plenty of power for a true jet-like performance.
Construction makes use of carbon rods which align the fuselage structure and provide great strength as well as guaranteeing an accurate assembly.
This is a Part Kit, which provides the major and time-consuming components needed to build a scale R/C EDF jet. It contains laser cut ply and balsa parts including:
To finish it you will need to provide materials including:
A0 plans (4 sheets) and comprehensive instructions are included to guide you at every stage of the build.
