I recently assembled such a model for our local school. It was purchased from the local hobby shop. Actually intended to be an electric powered radio controlled model. It came with aileron, elevator and rudder, I did some mods to create flaps. I also fitted a small electric motor to spin the prop slowly.


It is a PC-9 in Roulettes colours, but there are lots of options available. It is a little larger than most class room models, but does that really matter?


Cost was around $100.00

Hi Guy. Congrats on your new Senior Instructor title.


This model you’re after if you don’t need it RIGHT now ask your local LAME/L2 to get their apprentice to knock up a sheet metal version or alternately the local welder’s apprentice to use steel tubing/flat steel to produce a model with hinged controls.


Ballarat aero club have one of each - I’ll get photos tonight and pm them.
