One of the most recognisable planes have always been the Lockheed Constellation (“Connie” as many lovingly refer to them ) with their 3 vertical fins. The notorious billionaire, Howard Hughes and TWA both played a big part in it’s creation and in the late 1940’s the Constellation not only made long haul flights across the Atlantic possible, but luxurious and fast. As aviation fanatic’s we just could not let the opportunity go by to model the Constellation and the result is a RC airplane that will again be setting the standard.
Our Connie is a 1:9 Scale model with 170″ wingspan and 50Lbs weight that results in an awesome power to weight and wing loading making it real easy and relaxing to fly. With its look and size you will be turning a lot of heads at the field.
The scale landing gear package really makes the connie special
The Scale detail and quality of the kit is also very realistic and even has the trim tabs cut out.
The Electric version is powered by 4 x 30cc size electric Scorpion Brushless motor or there is a gas option for 4x 33cc Gas engines. We prefer the electric version because it sounds more scale and realistic in the air.
Even the engine nacelles have been painstakingly modelled to be perfectly scale and compliments the lovely rivet detail of the plane.
Transporting the Connie is also easy as it assembles in 5 minutes and with the wing breaking up in 4 parts and the fuselage in 2 the connie fits into a regular SUV.
When you select all the completion options of Gear, Servo and Power package, You will receive an airplane that is Ready to fly and all you need to do is install your receiver and motor Battery and do your TX setup, which should take no longer than 90 minutes.
The Aviatix Connie flies very easy and you do not need to be an expert pilot to be able to fly it. That massive wing and low wing loading ensures a very relaxing, slow, scale and easy flying experience.
