Default TurboProp suggestions

Hello all,

I'm considering building my first Turbo Prop. Of course, I reviewed the Skymasters PC-21 with interest but what else would you all recommend? I'm looking for something that flies well and can do intermediate aerobatics with a reasonable flight time (like say 7 minutes). I just need something that comes as an ARF as my building time is somewhat limited...

Default T-27 Tucano from CARF Models

The SM PC-21 is indeed a very nice turbo prop model.

I have built, owned and flown my CARF Tucano with a JetCat SPT-5 Turbo prop since 2011. I have logged many flights on it and enjoyed every minute. The plane is very predictable and will perform beautiful airshow routines all day long.

Good luck with your turbo prop experience, it is most satisfying.

I've been flying TP planes for many years...now into a scratch build that is a 125% Top Flight Contender powered by a King Tech 30 with electric retracts. It will be named the KingTender!
