The Beechcraft Duke has got to be one of the most beautiful and fastest twin engine piston aircraft ever made. It even looks fast! We have modelled our Aviatix Duke to be a special model just like its full size brother. Awesome surface detail complimented with all the scale functions you could dream about. The Duke has lights an impressive interior and the RTF version has powerful 46 size electric motors to ensure effortless and powerful flight.

The electric gear and electric motors make the Duke fun to fly and also very reliable. The lovely hum of the resonating props in the air, makes for the most amazing scale detail and flight experience.

Petrolheads can choose the Radio combo solution where you still get the completed plane, and can install the gas or glo motors of your preference.

The wing is in 3 pieces and with removable stabs the Duke is easy to get to the field and will fit into most Hatchback/Compact cars or midsize vehicles.

Beechcraft Duke - Radio System & Batteries Setup

When you purchase the radio combo or RTF versions of our planes, you will be getting all the servos and radio gear already factory installed professionally! The added cost is comparable or often less than what you would pay purchasing those items seperately. We get a much better deal directly from the manufacturers of Servos for some of the main servo brands and well known brands like Align Helicopters. We also select the perfect servo and weight combination for the application saving you the school fees losing a plane because of a servo failure. On the major flight surfaces we use only Metal or Titanium gear digital coreless servos of and on other functions metal gear and sometimes analog servos for some functions requiring it.

Plug your Receiver in and match the channels as per this table, set the correct control throws, charge the batteries, and you are ready to fly!

Included is the Channel requirements and setup specifications. Note: DL500 in the Receiver channels needed are functions handled by the DL500 Gear Controller sequencer and no radio channels are needed for such operation. The DL500 comes with the correct Learjet software and profile already installed.

Aviatix planes are made of the finest materials using the best equipment and processes. The result is a flyable quality plane that will need little maintenance as long as they are properly flown and treated. Our planes can withstand the average bad landings we all have sometime or in rough weather conditions!  Please keep in mind that although we do engineer a fair amount of redundancy into parts, in order to deliver a plane that flies well, it needs to be light. To do that, its built and engineered to be flown hard into air, but not into something harder than the air! In the event of an accident, we do have the parts to repair it.

All our planes have many options adding the perfect scale reality, all the way from the wheels below to the beacon light on the tail. Our Radio combo and Ready to Fly versions come standard with all you need to enjoy your plane to the maximum. If any parts are damaged and you would like to replace it or buy the same parts for another older plane, we will have it available.
