The Pilatus Turbo Porter PC-6 is famous in the aviation world for its Short Take-off and Landing (STOL) performance on almost any type of terrain. (click on the link for more details).

This airframe is the super scale version of our current 2.5m PC-6. It basically shares the same airframe 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!

Here the the major differences between the 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)
*Two new sliding cargo doors with improved mechanism
*Fiberglas moulded instrument panel, for a more realistic interior
*New curved scale windshield
*New scheme in white and red from the EAGLES PARA CENTER
*No wheels supplied

This is a very quick build kit, all major assembly work, to make sure that wing stab and rudder will be installed square, has been done at factory. Requires no less then 20 hours to complete.

Equipped with a 25 to 50cc engine it is pretty light, yet feature a strong construction, it is a very gentle flying tug. Even fitted with an 80cc engine, it has proven to be a reliable and long lasting plane, going through several heavy flight season without any trouble.
Electric tug is also possible with now the famous Plettenberg Terminator 30-8, it will tow 20-30lbs gliders to sky's limit.

This Pilatus has proven to be a great tug for gliders up to 30lbs.
