Not even the sky is the limit with the UGears Aviator. This meticulously detailed mechanical model is the way to put yourself in the pilot’s seat. Whatever your flight fantasy, the UGears Aviator is sure to bring you hours of entertainment in construction and operation.
This high flying kit includes a flight control tower, helicopter, and airplane. The flight control tower is your hub of operations and command center. It runs the motor controller that adjusts the revolutions per minute, setting the velocity of your selected aircraft. Two control bars, one resembling a joystick and the other a lever switch, are responsible for the roll and pitch of your connected craft.
The helicopter, which is generally easier to control, is where we recommend you start. You will appreciate the level of detail and precision of your chopper. It includes a three-bladed main rotor, tail rotor, and a cockpit door that opens and closes. This amazing model replicates every feature of this rotary-wing aircraft, right down to the masts and hubs for each rotor. The realistic, mechanical operation comes complete with an independent motion from each rotor. You’ll have no trouble imagining a covert rescue mission or delivering much-needed supplies to remote environs in your chopper.
The airplane is modeled after a biplane, with two main wings stacked on one another. It contains a rotating propeller on the nose. Reminiscent of the aircraft that began the pioneer era of aviation, the plane has a five-piston motor. This enables faster motion than that of the copter but also requires more hours of practice for successful launch up and away into the wild, blue yonder.
Once the assembly of all three units is complete, you’re ready to take flight. To launch your model aircraft, hold on to the flight control column while releasing the lock of the motor controller. Manipulate the controls to vary the revolution speed and the vertical and horizontal angles of rotation.
This set also comes with comprehensive instructions in a colorful, easy-to-read manual. Geared towards DIY enthusiasts and modeling fans alike, the UGears Aviator kit will bring not only hours of fun but also a deep appreciation for mechanical design.
