One of the most “Elegant and Graceful” airplanes of the 1930s is now a new offering from ParkZone. The Stinson SR-10 has a look that is instantly recognizable in the air with triple tapers in the wing and a round engine cowling that means “big power.” This one has all the typical features of a ParkZone model starting with the Z-Foam construction, 480 motor, full 4 channels and more. There is a lot of scale detail in this airplane. The landing gear replicates the full-size airplane while the “ribbed” wing simulates the full-size construction. It is available as both a Bind-N-Fly model and a Plug-N-Play version. BNF includes all the items needed to fly the airplane including battery and charger—the pilot only has to supply a DSM2 transmitter. The PNP will require that the pilot provide his own receiver, battery, and charger. I think the first thing that caught my attention was the amount of scale detail in this airplane. The landing gear treatment is exceptional. Watch our video interview with Eric Johnson, product developer, and learn even more.
