This is the 3rd improved version of this popular
series of Porter PC-6 tow planes. It basically shares the same airframe
as the predecessor and is also perfect as a tug, but also a joy
to fly and see!
Accurately reproduced with its typical shape, and has great handling.
The generous flaps will allow steep dive back, without acceleration, and
make a soft land at your feet, thanks the shock absorbed landing gear,
and get an other glider on tow quickly.
A pure pleasure to fly!

standard version and this super scale version:
*Slightly increased wingspan, thanks the new
fibreglass moulded wing tips
*Sheet metal reproduction on all control surfaces (elevator, rudder,
ailerons and flaps)

*New curved scale windshield
*New scheme in SkyDive PARA CENTER
