As electric flight has gained in popularity over the years the demand for exciting models has grown too. The Pinto fills that gap nicely with a design that is both attractive and functional. With a passing resemblance to the famous P51 Mustang fighter of WWII, the Pinto is bound to appeal to a wide variety of tastes.
Wing Span : Span (Inches): 36 Ins / 915 mm .
Radio Required : 3 Channels, 2 servo's and ESC. A 7 or 8 cell nicad is recommended.
Power is provided by a basic 400 motor, or for those that really want performance,a hot 480 or even a Cobalt. With seven cells and a standard 400, performance is sufficient to learn the flight characteristics without excessive speed. A 480 and eight cells really starts to ‘push the envelope’ and experienced pilots can explore the Pinto’s true aerobatic potential. The motor and drive system is not supplied in the kit but for a economically priced motor with a high performance try the World Models 400 Series Motor available on this site. Because of the higher speed of this design, drive is direct rather than through a gearbox, and this in turn helps to save money by keeping it simple.
This is not a model for the novice as it’s speed and sensitivity demand the finesse of more experienced hands. If you’re familiar with low wing aerobatic sports models, the Pinto should hold no worries and will reward you with stunning aerobatic potential.
The model is designed for micro radio gear and most micro servos will suit the model.
