The long awaited Bluebottle Hornet is finally here. Twin engined, comparable with RC gear and built for the ultimate scale appearance - you might even think this was a plastic kit!
This balsa model aircraft kit is a pro-build. You’ll want to assemble this one over several weeks, or even months, to make the most of it. It’s the ultimate builders experience. That being said, it would make the ideal long-term project for anyone with some solid balsa building experience.
Although the Bluebottle De Havilland Hornet is designed as a free flight kit, it is the ideal basis for an RC conversion. With a wingspan of 34”, experienced builders will have no trouble wiring up dual brushes motors and micro 5g servos.
