The Pilatus PC-6 is probably the worlds most iconic STOL aircraft. Used in numerous countries across the globe it has established itself as a capable workhorse with the ability to get in and out of some of the smallest airfrields. SFM have captured the charm of the fullsize in a practical 1650mm wingpsan ARTF package.
The Pilatus is suited to either I/C or electric power and is designed from the start to accomodate both. The airframe is built from laser cut parts and assembled on jigs to ensure accuracy making the SFM Pilatus is both lightweight and strong. Using a semi-symmetrical airfoil the Pilatus is predictable in the air and suited to a wide range of flight speeds. The wings feature large flaps just like the full-size to help shorten the take off run and slow down when landing.
