  • StevensAero - Stinson 105 Laser Cut, Micro RC Kit

    Fall 2015 (October) Micro Builder Program Model

    Background:

    The Stinson Aircraft Company was founded in 1920 by famed aviator Edward “Eddie” Stinson. In 1925, Stinson moved aircraft production from Dayton, Ohio to Detroit, Michigan, at the site where Detroit’s Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is located. Always an aviator at heart, Stinson flew as a stunt pilot, earning a staggering, at the time, $100,000 a year. Sadly, he did not live to see the success of his company. He was killed in a plane crash on January 26,1932.

    One of the most popular aircraft that the Stinson Aircraft Company produced was the Model 105. The Model 105 was Stinson’s first light aircraft. Introduced in 1939, the Stinson Company was hard pressed to meet the demand for this popular aircraft. Costing $2,995, the three-seat Model 105 was a strut-braced, high-wing monoplane, powered by either a 75 hp Continental A-75 engine, or the 80 hp Continental A-80-6. The aircraft also featured such innovations as a slotted wing to improve slow speed handling, and a luxurious cabin. Many notable aviation-minded people owned one, including Hollywood stars such as Edward Bergen, James Stewart, and billionaire playboy Howard Hughes.

    At the outbreak of the Second World War some Stinson 105s were commandeered for use by the military. They proved so successful that the aircraft was redesigned to become the L-5 Sentinel, the last of which were retired from active service in the U.S. Air Force in 1955.

    The Stevens AeroModel Stinson 105 UM features a modern kit design that builds trouble-free and quickly, thanks to modern design processes pioneered by Stevens AeroModel.

  • StevensAero - 1919 Ricci Triplane UM

    Summer 2015 (July) Micro Builder Program model

    Background:

    There is not a lot of information available on this quirky little design. What attracted us to it as a potential model design was a wonderful line drawing that we had stashed away in our future projects file. A search of the internet yielded some additional information including a few photos.

    Lifelong Italian aviation enthusiasts, brothers Umberto and Ettore Ricci, started their aviation careers with rigid hot-air airship models and free flight gliders, designed and built in their youth. They went on to design huge flying boats, and a series of small aircraft, conceived as flying motorcycles. The Ricci Triplane is one of these designs.  The 10-foot, 7-inch wing span aircraft, was powered by a six-cylinder Anzani engine that could propel the plane through the sky at approximately 78 miles per hour. The lovely little triplane was built for a competition of small light aircraft, held in 1919, it came in behind a few other competitors, including the little Breda Pensuti Triplane. 

    Although The Ricci Triplane is largely forgotten today, it can still take to the skies – in model form at least. The Stevens AeroModel Ricci Triplane UM features a modern kit design that builds trouble-free and quickly, thanks to modern design processes, pioneered by Stevens AeroModel.  

    Kit Includes:

    • Precision laser cut parts 
    • Full size detail sheets with markings template
    • Photo illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions
    • Hardware package including push-rods, control horns, struts, receiver clip, profile pilot, wheels.

    Kit Requires:

    • 1/2 oz. Thin and Medium CA glues
    • Sanding Block with 220 grit paper
    • AeroLITE covering film (White and Red as shown- Two Patch Packs Suggested)
    • Pre-Cut "N" numbers and "Zot" marking available as an optional purchase.
    • Reciever, ParkZone PKZ3352 Receiver/ESC/Servo unit
    • Motor, PKZ3624 
    • Propeller, 130mm x 70mm EFL9051
    • Compatible Spektrum DSM2, ParkZone, or E-Flite Radio

    Optional Finish Packages:

    • Purchase our "Recruit Package" which includes the comprehensive airframe kit along with pre-cut color markings to complete this traditional Ricci scheme.  
    • Our "Flyboy Package" includes the comprehensive airframe kit, decal set (as above), and covering (two PatchPaks of AeroLITE - one each antique white and dark green).
