Extras Required

Nothing at all! Having said that you will need the usual building stuff like glue and sandpaper and of course a glow or electric power system. A reliable radio with 4 servos should complete things.

Covering material is required and a finishing procedure. I prefer the iron on coverings and will be using Oratex from Balsa USA.

RC Fairey Swordfish -1/10 scale. Hardware list.

This is a very comprehensive hardware package. It consists of the best quality Dubro parts and you should not have to buy a single extra item!

I started to add up the cost from Dubro  and was amazed when the total came to well over $150.00USD!

Videos & Photos

This is a very short video, but I think it is worth showing, because it does show the second flight of the RC Fairey Swordfish and shows that it does indeed take-of and fly well!
