DC-3 For Sale

Sturla's Design (rcsturla.com) has plans of his DC-3 for sale. They build to a 119 in. wingspan and 97 in. length. Power can come from 25 cc engines and weight should be around 36 lbs.

We received the following email from Sturla Design:
"I have finished designing DC-3 plans for sale. I, of course, built the DC-3 along with the design and have already flown it 15 times this summer. The reason I wanted to design the DC-3 for sale is that I could not find true scale plans anywhere. There is a real DC-3 here in Iceland that I had access to during the design process. I have flown in it as well, and I just love flying my scale DC-3 because it flies just like the real thing. I have the landing gear, cowls with oil cooling as well as the nose all for sale."
Thank you for bringing us the latest news on your DC-3 for sale Sturla.
