Same passion, different size!

 Not every project is born from the idea of furthering business prospects. Sometimes something is created simply because of the passion and pleasure to do so. This is basically what happened with the Bobber RC, born exclusively to realize a dream: the creation of a true miniature airplane. The concepts of the scale radio-controlled models and the methods used in their construction are well-recognized and tend to respect traditional parameters. Most often, starting from an existing aircraft, maintaining the original shape but using non-original materials, a scale radio-controlled model is produced that, though it looks similar or even identical to the plane from which it draws inspiration, does not literally reflect the materials and construction methods of the original. With the Savage Bobber RC we have tried to apply the same constructive techniques used in the original plane produced by us (our Savage Bobber), and we have used the same 4130 steel, 6061T6 aluminum, same covering and painting materials and processes, and same leather upholstery!
In so doing we have produced something that can satisfy the aficionado in a unique way.

The world of scale radio-controlled models certainly does not lack products; we’re well aware that in the vast world of model airplanes everything and more has already been produced and offered. However, a model of the Savage Bobber, constructed like the original, by the original producer and with the same aeronautical approach, is unique on the market.

A wide range of paint schemes are available upon request to further customize the airplane. The same concepts of bush flying have been also applied in this plane as in its older brother boosting an extended and reinforced landing gear with customer produced big size foam bushwheels bush wheels, making it not dependent on traditional well-prepared model airplane airfields.

The Bobber RC is offered at scale 1:3 and 1:2,5: this last one, still in the 25kg category, and boosting almost 4 meters wingspan, is really the model to have! It looks impressive, and flight qualities are even better than the smaller version thanks to a lower wing loading.
Wings can be detached easily, and even elevators fold for an easy transport.

Both models can be fitted with a wide range of motors but we deliver an engine mount for the Valach Motors VM 120 B2-4T, which has by the way a very distinctive old style look and is definitely a good match to the aircraft.

As we love to say, the Bobber RC is not a big rc model, but a small real airplane! If you have been in the look for something unique as your next project, then you have found it!
