Quick Overview

Built by Douglas for American airlines, the DC-3 first flew in 1936.Our model is designed at 1:19 scale in the typical Dare "Stick & Tissue" style of construction and electric power making the models ideal for small fields, yet substantial enough for larger fields as well. Featured in the kit are the engine and cowl configurations for any of the many variants including the early and late model DC-3's and C-47's, Navy R4D or the RAF Dakota II.

Designed for twin electrics and 5 channel R/C, the DC-3 includes rudder, ailerons, elevator and throttle control plus functional flaps to keep the landing speeds comfortably low for those small field landings. Due to the lighweight construction of all Dare models, this one provides very scale-like flying qualities.
