Over 15,000 T-6 Texans (known as the Harvard outside the US) were built. They were used primarily for pilot training during WWII, but this rugged aircraft was also used in a wide variety of other roles during and after the war. Widely exported, some were still in military operation into the 1990s and hundreds of them are still flying today in private ownership.
This 1:5.33 scale, Brian Taylor designed, 2425 mm (94.25”) wingspan R/C model of the North American AT-6 Texan/Harvard is built using a detailed three sheet plan, which offers modellers the chance to build and fly any of the variants of this classic training aircraft. It is of all wood construction and a laser cut wood pack is available. The Texan was designed to be flown with a 1.20 to 1.50 cu. in. 4-stroke engine, but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
