DHC-2 Beaver 25e ARF

DHC-2 Beaver 25e ARF

E-flite EFL4525 Airplane (Discontinued) Electric ARF

This item is discontinued but parts are still available in the Parts List below.
  • DHC-2 Beaver 25e ARF

    The DHC-2 Beaver was designed by de Havilland of Canada for flight in remote wilderness areas of the world. The Beaver was designed to be exceptionally rugged and powerful. This single-engine monoplane could easily be retrofitted with wheels, skis or floats. The short takeoff and landing capabilities made it ideal to access areas that could normally only be reached by boat or foot. The Beaver entered into service in 1948 and quickly established itself by flying to the frozen, remote areas of Canada and Alaska. Despite the fact that production ceased in 1967, many of the DHC-2 Beavers are still flying today to access remote areas for fishermen or island-hopping tourists in the Caribbean.

    The DHC-2 Beaver 25e ARF is part of E-flite’s PLATINUM SERIES. The platinum series delivers superior, enhanced features and meticulous attention to detail. E-flite’s Platinum Series is just one more way that E-flite brings you the most advanced electric flight experience.

    The details of this PLATINUM SERIES scale model include corrugated flight surfaces, concealed tail linkages and a scale dummy motor. The construction of the lightweight, sturdy airframe is balsa and plywood. The scale enthusiast will admire the scale color scheme, prepainted fiberglass cowl, and genuine UltraCote® covering. In addition, the removable one-piece wing allows for easy transportation.

    The DHC-2 Beaver is another exciting opportunity for pilots to experience civilian scale electric flight. Just like the versatility of the full-size DHC-2 Beaver, the E-flite model comes with float mounts built into the fuselage. For added fun, the pilot can quickly change the landing gear to the optional float set (EFLA500) for on-water takeoffs and landings. The large flap areas aid the characteristic short landings performed by the DHC-2. The DHC-2 gives the modeler options; it is outfitted with the new E-flite adjustable motor mount system which allows either the Power 25 or Power 32 brushless outrunner motors to be bolted directly onto the firewall. The combination of the PLATINUM SERIES detail and the additional float kit place the DHC-2 Beaver in a class of its own.

    Features

    • The firewall setup for outrunner motors gives you the choice between E-flite® Power 25 and Power 32 motors
    • Factory-painted fiberglass cowling, dummy motor and landing gear covers offer quality and scale detail throughout
    • The optional floats (available separately) add another level of modeling enjoyment
    • The float mounts built into the fuselage allow the landing gear and floats to be changed quickly
    • The quality balsa and plywood airframe is sturdy and lightweight
    • Removable one-piece wing allows for easy transportation and storage
    • Genuine UltraCote® covering

    Had another fly it for the first time. His comment was, "The first airplane I've flown for initial flight that I did not have to make any adjustments", meaning to me someone did their homework. Had some problems with space in the rear control assembly but worked it out, evidently correctly. Fantastic looks. Have a friend that spent time in Alaska and he said it took him back a few years just looking at the model.

    First ARF - Loved It!

    Appearance

    This was my first ARF build, and I would say it had a few challenges, probably only because I was new at it. The biggest issue was getting the ESC to fit and still have enough room between the cowling and the prop. I had to shim the motor on the motor mounts with a couple of washers to make enough clearance and even then it was fairly tight. I had a bit of fun getting the servos set to the right spot for neutral on the ailerons and flaps.
    Overall though it wasn't too bad, probably due to a bit of experience. This is a great looking airplane, and I have yet to fly it. Can't wait. I have floats for it as well as skis. I will be trying out the ski's first and then floats this summer.

    Pluses:  Beautiful.  Lots of comments at field. Great value for price.
    Cons:  Needs some down elevator with flaps. Bouncy until you get your landings down.

    The best value in any of my planes. Neat steerable tail wheel hook up. Hidden flap servo. A big plane. Needs rudder on turns. Generally land with half flaps and no throttle. Three cell 3000 mAh battery with Rimfire 32. Is great on wheels. I use a four cell with floats. Have had the plane for ages and has held up well despite dumb thumb occasionally.
