Gents – I’m taking the plunge on this puppy, check it out:
The real Piper Pawnee was manufactured between 1959 through 1982. Widely used in agriculture spraying and as a tow plane or tug for launching gliders or for towing banners. This Bill Hempel model is designed around the PA-25 version. This airplane has a huge wing span of 198" and a fuselage length of 130" . The Pawnee will accept motors ranging from 150cc through 275cc. One of the unique designs of this model is its (2) piece fuselage! The fuselage can be separated with the internal bolts that hold the front and rear half’s together. This airplane also has a provision for a tow release built into the rear turtle deck.
