Curtiss Pusher EP 50" ARF

Curtiss Pusher EP 50" ARF

The 1911 Curtiss Pusher (or frequently called "Curtiss Model D") was an early United States pusher aircraft with the engine and propeller behind the pilot's seat. It was among the very first aircraft in the world to be built in any quantity.


It was also the aircraft type which made the first takeoff from the deck of a ship (flown by Eugene B. Ely off the deck of the USS Birmingham on November 14th, 1910 near Hampton Roads, Virginia) and made the first landing aboard a ship (the USS Pennsylvania) on January 18, 1911 near San Francisco, California.


Early examples were built in a canard configuration, with elevators mounted on struts at the front of the aircraft in addition to a horizontal stabilizer at the rear. Later, the elevators were incorporated into the tail unit, and the canard surface arrangement dispensed with, resulting in what became called the Curtiss "Headless" Pushers. Our RC Curtiss Pusher is the "Headed" version about 1/9 scale and is about 1/9 scale, all made of wood and composite parts.
