  • Official Nexa 1800mm Douglas C-47 - ARF Thread

    Douglas C-47 1800mm (70.8") Wingspan - ARF from Nexa - NXA1012-001

    The Douglas C-47 Skytrain or Dakota (RAF, RAAF, RCAF, RNZAF, and SAAF designation) is a military transport aircraft developed from the civilian Douglas DC-3 airliner. It was used extensively by the Allies during World War II and remained in front-line service with various military operators for many years.

    The Nexa Douglas C-47 is a 70" wingspan electric scale series warbird, 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 painted pilot, antenna and other scale details. The large battery hatch affords ample room for either electric or gas setups. To complete the scale appeal of this C-47, the model includes electric retracts and scale struts. Impress at your flying field with this iconic stunner!
