    This is the Roban AH-1W Super Cobra Scale 700 ARF. A premium scale kit that offers unparalleled detail. From tip-to-tail the AH-1W body kit displays an accuracy of detail to the real aircraft not normally seen in the RC helicopter hobby.

    This almost ready to fly kit comes with a full scale detail cockpit with dashboard, joysticks, rudder pedals, aerials, windshield wipers and more. Full rear cabin interiors are included (not installed). Floor and ceiling details can be crafted so once the interiors are installed you have an impressively scaled cockpit/interior.

    These scale kits house the cockpit in precisely the right location and the mechanics are built into the engine compartment just like in the full scale version. The AH-1W really impresses with the highly detailed and accurately scaled down profile.

    • 2 Blade rotorhead and scale carbon fiber rotor blades
    • 2 Tail blade head and scale carbon fiber tail blades
    • Extremely detailed surface with molded panel lines and rivets
    • Complete 2 seat scale cockpit
    • Complete built In / partially pre-installed position lighting system (Controlled via AUX channel)
    • Special CCPM mechanics built in the top section like the full scale
    • Take off weight of 8kg (approximately double of a 700 3D helicopter)
    • 1750mm long, 1/8 scale
    • Roban AH-1W Super Cobra 700 scale body
    • Full 700 size helicopter mechanics
    • 2 Carbon fiber rotor blades

    • Complete 2 seat scale cockpit
    • Complete built In / partially pre-installed position lighting system
    Requires:Important Information - Please Read
    Roban Scale Helicopters are intended for modelers who have advanced level building skills. Both ARF and KIT product formats require you to install your own electronics (ESC, servos, motor, etc). KIT product formats also require you to install your own helicopter mechanics. Because helicopter mechanics can vary greatly in size and shape, you may be required to modify the fuselage slightly (including cutting, drilling, etc.) to achieve a perfect fit. Roban fuselages are all handmade from fiberglass and therefore may have slight variation in tolerances between body panels, doors, or windows. These variations do not affect flight performance and can be easily adjusted by an experienced builder with proper tools. These precautions are intended for novice builders; an experienced modeler should have no issue achieving perfect results with these premiere scale helicopters kits.
