Ford Trimotor

Build Thread


            The Ford Trimotor features a 46.7" wingspan, is 31.5" long, tips the scales at 17.9 oz., and is powered by 3, E-Flite 250 Outrunners with a single 1300 mah 2S Lipoly Battery. The idea was to build a simple, lightweight  4 ch. model of the classic early Airliner without all the complexities and added weight of the corrugated skin, yet produce a legitimate looking light weight Park Flyer style model of this historic old bird.

    The Short Kit contains 3 highly detailed 36 X 48 plans sheets, 11 Laser Cut wood sheets (9 Balsa & 2 Ply Wood), plus 3 vac-formed scale radial engines.

     The Trimotor builds light and strong, and if these old piston powered airliners are your thing, will make a terrific addition to your fleet of "Small Field Airliners". 

     The Graphics shown for the "Scenic Airways" color scheme, as well as any other chosen custom scheme you might have in mind, are available from
