The Phoenix Models RC Stuka JU 87:1.20/20cc or Electric Power
This RC Stuka JU 87, by Phoenix Models, is a popular sized ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) model with a wing span of 75.2" (1910 mm). It is constructed of laser cut balsa and ply and covered with a printed material that include panel lines.
The first video is the official Phoenix model movie. It has a nice "walk-around" followed by a good taxi and take-off. The flying shots are professional and the landing deserves an 8 out of 10 in my scorebook!
The next one is by the AMA and shows good shots of the finished model. The author did not like the very non-scale gloss finish so he sprayed the model with a flat finish and added weathering. The landing gets a score of 9!
This last video shows how Phoenix models are constructed. The girls doing the majority of the building and covering are masters at ARF building!
The instructions are very well written, in good english. Very clear 2D and 3D drawings are easy to understand and will make the assembly of this Stuka JU 87 a pleasure. Please click here to see this manual.
An overspray of a matt clear coat is highly recommended. I have used a matt water based polyurethane, applied with a small roller and achieved excellent results.Minwax Polyurethane dries fast and looks good. It is easier if the matt coat is applied before assembly of the Stuka JU 87.
Fiberglass the inside of the wheel spats to make them more durable.
