Flight Test Seagull

Flight Test Seagull Glasair Sportsman 2+2 Have a ball with this quickbuilding, sporty plane! BY MIKE GANTT | PHOTOS BY JOHN REID & MIKE GANTT 26 MORE FROM THIS ISSUE AT MODELAIRPLANENEWS.COM

The full-size Glasair airplanes are touted as “Two Weeks to Taxi” projects starting with the company’s fast-building kits and accessories. Much like assembling a higher-end ARF model airplane, the homebuilder can end up with a complete airplane ready WATCH IT NOW! ModelAirplaneNews.com/ to be signed off for flight in only 14 days. With the new Seagull ARF, M0413 distributed by Horizon Hobby, you can enjoy the same quick-build assembly time with this sport-scale ARF. Top-quality balsa and light ply are used to make the structure, which is covered beautifully with Hangar 9 UltraCote in a winning color combo. Also included in the package (which was double boxed for shipping) are painted fiberglass wheel pants and cowl, nice foam wheels, painted landing gear mains, a pull-pull steerable tailwheel, color matching wing struts, an extensive hardware pack, precut decals, and an instruction manual. This manual is available online as well and is a bit better than the paper one included with my test model. If you have built a few ARFs before, the instructions will not be an issue. New builders/pilots should ask for an experienced second set of hands just in case there are any questions or issues encountered.
