Power; Suppo 2217 Outrunner, 20A ESC w/ BEC, APC 11-5.5E Prop and a Hyperion 2500 mah 2S Lipoly Battery.

The Pacer is a large Park Flyer, but is slow and docile, so can be flown in smaller venues. The model is of all wood construction with Vac-Formed plastic Cowl and Wheel Pants, and requires intermediate building skills, though some “stick framing” experience would be very helpful.
Flying the Pacer requires only intermediate flying skills as well, and would make a terrific first 5 ch. scale model. For those relaxing late day flying sessions, the Pacer looks great floating around the calm evening skies.
The short kit contains 3 highly detailed 36” X 48” plan sheets, parts I.D. sheet, and 11 laser cut (9 balsa 2 plywood) sheets and Vac-Formed plastic Cowl and Wheel Pants. Patterns are provided for the windshield, cabin windows and wingtip, rudder and elevator bowing patterns, as well as detailed list of additional materials required, plus assembly instructions to aid in building the model. Gauges are also provided for accurately setting up the proper flap deflection.
