Hughes H-1 V2 EP 50” ARF with Pre-installed Electric Retracts   

This is a scale model of the famous Howard Hughes H-1 from the Golden Age of Aviation, the 20-year period between the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II.  Though originally designed simply for speed, the H-1 had many new features that influenced the design of high-performance aircraft for years, including retractable landing gear, gently curving wing fillets, rivets and joints that were flush with the aircraft's skin, and ailerons that could be drooped when the flaps were fully extended, improving lift along the full length of the wing for takeoffs and landings. 

The original H-1 is now on display in the Golden Age of Flight gallery in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
The 1st version of Maxford USA H-1 was released after nearly 2 years in development and true to the original designe, it is stable at both low and high speeds, features concealed rudder and elevator controls, the new developed Max Cowling fiberglass cowl, magnetic battery hatch, spring loaded tail wheel and optional retractable landing gear.

Version 2 is the new improved version make this unique ARF even better than the 1st version.
