About the AvTim's - Gee Bee Z

You will love this easy to make curved fuselage design!  We made this after the R1, I was challenged to make a Gee Bee looking model thats easy to fly. 


This model uses a similar wing to our cub and has some great slow flight trainer characteristics.  


Just as the full scale Gee Bee made pilots heats beat, yours will pound as you turn final to take your victory landing!

Flight Video Gee Bee RZ

This project grew out of a discussion about how trainers are not fun looking.  We all have that friend that wants to get started and buys a $400 plane and it flys for 30 seconds. 


Our Gee Bee Z is a great way to get started and look cool at the same time.

I had just as much fun building this as flying it. I ended up build three of them love them all. 


Heat up your glue guns and build along with me and soon your F16 will be taking the sky like it owns it.
