27% Gee Bee Model Y ARF V2  
This item is elegible for Flat-Finished and Fabric Covered option.

The Gee Bee Model Y Senior Sportster was one of the 
famous “Golden Age” racers created by Granville Brothers Aircraft in the early 1930s.  It was a low-wing, strut-and-wire-braced monoplane with open cockpits. To a great extent, it was an enlarged, two-seat version of the single-seat Sportster. Only two were ever built; both were unfortunately destroyed in accidents.

This new improved radio-controlled almost-ready-to-fly (ARF) 27% sport-scale model is based on the full-scale Gee Bee Model Y Senior Sportster. It comes 99% pre-assembled, includes a prepainted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants, and includes a spring-loaded tail wheel to aid in ground handling.

Wing Area: 1577 sq in
ARF weight: 16.5 lbs
