VMAR L-19 Bird Dog - Military Scale Nostalgia.

Dressed in scale detail military livery, VMAR introduces the nostalgic Cessna L-19 Bird Dog in two different military trims for exceptional scale definition that looks great on the ground and in the skies above. Constructed of a solid balsa and ply layup, the VMAR L-19 Bird Dog is an exact scale representation of the 19050's era L-19 Bird Dog, which provided the perfect observation / communication platform for the United States army.

Spanning 49" from tip to tip, the VMAR L-19 offers exceptional scale flight characteristics, with excellent low speed maneuverability & stall performance. Amiable in character, the L-19 is rugged and tough, with its smaller size making it the perfect plane for limited area locales, such as fields, parks and smaller landing strips.

Incredibly easy to build with a no glue assembly process, the L-19 Bird Dog requires minimal work, with a 3 to 5 hour assembly process. Fully covered in a Polycote ECS covering, the VMAR L-19 Bird Dog makes the entire build process a breeze, allowing you to spend less time assembling the aircraft and far more time at the field and in the air.

Utilizing a dual servo aileron system with an ultra simplified 4 channel layout, the L-19 Bird Dog was designed for electric power, making this plane incredibly easy to setup and maintain. Offering excellent bang for your buck value, the L-19 Bird Dog is ultra low in cost, and requires low cost equipment to get in the air, equating to a full up build far less than comparable aircraft. Further this with a 2 piece wing that allows easy transport and storage, the L-19 is easier than ever to manage in the hangar or at the field.

Easy to fly with excellent levels of scale detail and quality, the VMAR L-19 Bird Dog is the perfect choice for beginner to advanced pilots, offering gentle flying qualities with scale realism that will be appreciated by all.
