The Douglas C-47 Skytrain transport aircraft flew from every continent in the world and took part in every major battle in the Second World War. Designated the "Dakota" by British Commonwealth forces but universally known as the "Gooney Bird", the C-47 was cited by General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe, as one of the most crucial pieces of military equipment used in winning World War II. C-47s remained in active military service in a variety of roles long after the war. They played a critical role in the 1948 Berlin Airlift and saw action in both the Korean and Vietnam wars. Its civilian counterpart, the DC-3, pioneered many modern air travel routes and is one of the first airliners that could profitably carry only passengers without relying on mail subsidies.

The Flite Test Master Series C-47 Skytrain provides a true scale RC flying experience in the style of a classic 1940s era cargo/passenger aircraft. Geared for the experienced pilot, the FT Master Series C-47 requires lots of runway for realistic, smooth, and gentle take-offs. Wide, scale turns are a must for this legendary aircraft. Use a 3S battery for scale flight performance, but for plenty of power, 4S batteries will enable you to power out of danger when needed. For pilots that want to experience a twin-engine transport with scale flight characteristics, the FT Master Series C-47 is the way to go!

    Excellent Master Series speed build kit with simple mapping ease. The fit of each piece went together flawlessly! The scale detailing is at the hands of the builder and your imagination. Excellent size and powered with a Power Pack C twin has lots of power for even added scale details and extra weight without sacrificing flight performance. So what are you waiting for? Many different paint schemes to create on your next C-47 Skytrain speed build kit.

    I've bought and built literally most of the Flite Test foam board planes. Some 3-4 times. I'm not upset there is no build video for this plane. However it seems there isn't any good information out there on a build order. No directions come with the plane so there is a lot of guess work on assembly. Hoping they provide more information on these builds in the future. Due to my time restraints this one will sit on the shelf as the time commitment to build is greater than expected due to the above mentioned reasons. I will update my review if I get a chance to build.
