    This is the 500 class conversion kit of the A-109 Coast Guard helicopter, a lightweight, twin-engine, eight-seat multi-purpose helicopter. The A-109 had the distinction of being the first all-Italian helicopter to be mass-produced. Designed to take your Chaos 500 or Trex torque tube versions and transform it into a very scale RC version of the twin engine Italian-manufactured workhorse.

    When you open the box, the fuselage is completely painted in standard automotive base coat and clear coat for a super gloss finish. Included are retractable scale metal landing gear which require two servos to operate. The servos are not included. Aluminum wheels, rubber tires, and scale struts give this kit a very scale look.

    Working sliding doors allow easy access to the mechanics as well as the entire top dog house being removable with factory installed magnets and locating pins. Designed for easy battery removal. This fuselage can be completed in as little as 4-6 hrs and is intended for the intermediate to advanced builder. No modifications needed when using stock mechanics and stock rotor head.

    • Fully painted fiberglass scale fuselage
    • Scale retractable metal landing gear (requires 2 additional servos)
    • Use of 500 standard equipment (6S Battery, 1400-1600Kv motor), fly with your existing parts
    • Roban A-109 Coast Guard 500 body kit
    • Scale retractable metal landing gear (requires 2 additional servos)

    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.
