Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane

Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane

Bob Stephens built this S.E.5a WWI British Biplane as an AMA Sport Scale Competition model. It was built from a Steven’s Aero Kit and is equipped with a Parkzone receiver (PKZ 3352 Rx/esc/servo brick) and Parkzone geared motor (PKZ 3624). Power is from a single cell 150 mah LiPo. The radio and motor are the same used in the popular Parkzone Ultra Micro RTF P-51 or SU 26 models. The model is 1/25th scale and weights 1.6 oz. Bob added many extra details to the model including the Lewis machine gun mounted on a Foster mount on the top wing. There is a Vikers gun on the fuselage. This kit , receiver, and motor were all purchased from Anchorage House of Hobbies. Check with AHH for other fine Stevens Aero models and all the bits and pieces to get them airborne. AHH has a wide selection of subjects for indoor scale and sport flying. Bob took home a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies for bringing in and sharing this beautiful model with the club!

JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
