A New Zealand agricultural icon returns! It's been a long time since the Fletcher Fu-24 has been seen around NZ & Australian flying fields, so we have spent hundreds of hours on our brand new development of this iconic NZ aircraft.
Working from full-size drawings and consulting with Fletcher experts we are very proud to present our 84" 120 size Fletcher Fu-24. Designed in-house by a Master Aeromodeller, with modern building practices and techniques in mind, you will be rewarded with a very large and strong, great looking aircraft, ready to dust your field!
The airframe is built up from balsa and ply, and fully sheeted, ready for the finishing of your choice. The Laser Cut Short Kit includes a vacuum formed cowling, air intakes, tail cone and canopy pieces.
This Fletcher Fu-24 is not a beginners kit, you would need to have some previous kit building experience. Servo positioning is shown on the plan, but we have left up to the builder to decide on servo mounting and control rod installation, and the scale flaps and all-moving tailplane require some woodworking skills. Details of the hopper location are included on the plan, but a working hopper installation is left up to the builder as required.
Wingspan: 84" / 2133mm
Number of channels: 5
Recommended engine size: 120 four stroke or electric equivalent
Includes full sized rolled plan
Materials Required For Short Kit Airframe Completion: (These materials are included in the Complete Airframe Kit)
A Short Kit includes a full size printed plan and all of the laser cut parts that are required as part of the complete airframe build.
Items such as wing ribs, dihedral joiners, fuselage formers & fuselage parts, doublers, bulkheads and so on.
Every part which is a complex cut is precisely laser cut as per the plan and included in the short kit. Some kits may also include vacuum formed ABS parts like canopies or cowlings.
With a Short Kit, the only items you need to add to the laser cut parts to build a complete airframe are components which are simply cut to length. Parts such as wing spars, wing sheeting or fuselage sheeting for example.
A Complete Airframe Kit includes the Laser Cut Short Kit, plus the entire list of additional materials required to complete the airframe build.
