This is the Vintage Top Flite ORION kit RC-1,....NIB and more than rare.
Also a collectible kit. There is no zip code on the box so kit is pre-1963. One end of box has split corners and both sides have a split at half length but top is very good with original price in crayon.....27.95!!
Kit contents are as new.
It is the Ed Kazmirski designed winner of the 1960 R/C World Championship and the first R/C plane kitted by Top Flite, after which came the Taurus.
The Orion is the precursor to the famous Top Flite Taurus model and very similar. The Orion has frise type barn door ailerons which are more efficient than the Taurus's strip type and the wing shape is almost identical.
It flew with a .45 back then and today would fly beautifully with a present day.45 but a .56 or .60 is also appealing.
Please read the dimensions and contents from the posted photos
