Model description - 301
The 737 airliner was supplied either as custom built Almost-Ready-to-Flymodel model or as a kit. The 737's design was a combination of traditional construction and unique EDFmodel assembly techniques. Some good modelling experience was required.
Wingspan: 1400mm (4.6 Ft), length 1195mm (4 Ft), Weight: AUW 1620g (3.5 lb).
Control surfaces: All moving tail plane, inboard fowler flaps, ailerons, rudder and steerable nose wheel.
Model finish: Airliner decals could be selected from existing graphic designs or a standard white configuration.
Retractable wheels: DSR-30 retractable undercarriage set with controller. Nose doors open and close.
Flaps: Inboard Fowler type flaps - as the flap continues to extend its angle progressively increases.
Lights: 2 x Red fuselage strobes lights, 2 x Wing landing lights, 2 x Wing tip Green/Red lights
Hardware: 2 x 301 EDFmodel EDF jet engines, 2 x 4900 kv brushless motors, 2 x 30 Amp controllers, 4 X Hitec HS-45HB servos, 1 x Hitec HS-56HB servos, 2 x Hitec HD-35 servos, 1 x DSR-30 retractable undercarriage set with controller, 1 x Castle 10 Amp BEC, 1 x lights & controller.
Power setup: The power setup of the 737 was excellent with a high thrust-to-weight ratio producing short take-offs.On a 3s battery the engine & fan combination will sink at full throttle 60 Amps, producing 620 watts. This translated into approximately 1100g (2.4 lbs) of static thrust. A 3300 mAH battery will provided a flight time upwards of 7 minutes if the model is flown in a slow airliner like fashion.
