Great Planes Gee Bee Sport Scale Brushless Tx-R

Gee Bee Sport Scale Brushless Tx-R

Unmistakable looks — outstanding performance!


Originally designed by the Granville Brothers in the 1930s, the Gee Bee's shape was intended to accommodate the Pratt & Whitney R-1340, the largest and most powerful engine of its day. The fuselage's unusual design acted as an airfoil, allowing the plane to make smooth "knife-edge" turns without losing altitude. With Jimmy Doolittle in the cockpit, the Gee Bee won the prestigious 1932 Thompson Trophy race and set a world landplane speed record of 296 mph (476 km/h) in the Shell Speed Dash. Now you can own this historic plane in a scale flying version. The model is powered by a brushless motor for speed and performance that would make the original Gee Bee blush. Transmitter-Ready means that you can fly your plane with any AnyLink compatible radio. Just, slip in a battery, pick up your favorite radio controller and you're ready to fly!
