is famous in the aviation world for its Short Take-off and Landing
performance on almost any type of terrain. (click on the link for more
This airframe is the super scale version of our
current 3.2m 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
*Two cabin doors that open like full size
*Fiberglas moulded instrument panel, for a more realistic interior
*New curved scale windshield
*New scheme in white and orange from the EAGLES PARA CENTER
*No wheels supplied

with a 50 to 80cc engine it will fly like a trainer and very scale. For towing
the DA85 has proven to be the best choice. The kit features large flaps,
and a nice scale touch with the sliding door, that allows access to a
large storage, where you can install a camera for example.
The kit includes the two release mechanism for aerotowing.
Electric tug is also possible with now the famous
Plettenberg Preadator 30-8,
it will tow 25-40lbs gliders to sky's limit.
This Pilatus has proven to be
a great tug for gliders up to 55lbs.
