  • Official Nexa 1560mm T-34C Turbo Mentor - ARF Thread

    T-34C Turbo Mentor 1560mm (61.4") Wingspan - ARF from Nexa - NXA1020-001

    The Beechcraft T-34 Mentor is an American propeller-driven, single-engined, military trainer aircraft derived from the Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza. The earlier versions of the T-34, dating from around the late 1940s to the 1950s, were piston-engined. These were eventually succeeded by the upgraded T-34C Turbo-Mentor, powered by a turboprop engine. The T-34 remains in service more than six decades after it was first designed.

    The Nexa T-34C Turbo Mentor is a .50 size electric or gas option scale series warbird with a 1560mm wingspan, constructed primarily from balsa wood and covered with a fuel-resistant covering. This ARF requires assembly and installation of your choice of servos and power system, and includes flaps, painted pilot and other scale details. The large battery hatch affords ample room for either electric or gas setups. To complete the scale appeal of this T-34C, the model includes electric retracts and scale struts. Impress at your flying field with this iconic stunner!

    Any report on the landing gear, is it shock strut and sturdy enough?


    • #3
      landing gear appears ok as it has metal trunions the nose gear steering is a challenge at least it was for me.. its a nice looking ARF and easy assembly.. if u buy one get a 1/4 inch dowel for the wings as its not in the box btw yes it has compression shocks on all 3 gear
