As electric flight has gained in popularity over the years the demand for exciting models has grown too. The Pinto fills that gap nicely with a design that is both attractive and functional.

With a passing resemblance to the famous P51 Mustang fighter of WWII, the Pinto is bound to appeal to a wide variety of tastes. As with all our R/C designs the Pinto uses fully CNC-cut components to add both accuracy and speed to the building process.

As this model has been designed from the start as a sports aerobatic machine, care should be taken to not add any unnecessary weight during construction. The selection of wood in this kit has been made to ensure the right combination of strength and low weight.

Power is provided by a basic 400/480-sized brushless or brushed motor, with the 480 option really showing the Pinto’s true aerobatic potential. The motor is not supplied in the kit .

The Pinto has been designed from the outset to use micro R/C gear. You will need three 9g or 16g servos, as the ailerons require one each side as well as one for the elevator - there is no rudder in this design but we do know of modellers who have fitted one. Radio should have three channels, but if you have four and mixing, fine tuning can be made by splitting the ailerons into two channels and adjusting the differential.

Choice of a suitable speed controller will very much depend on the motor and battery combination used. 

This is not a model for the novice as it’s speed and sensitivity demand the finesse of more experienced hands. If you’re familiar with low wing aerobatic sports models, the Pinto should hold no worries and will reward you with stunning aerobatic potential.

A great model to progress from the Toucan!
