First 162 from Direct Airscale


The first 162 is the specific airplane for beginner. Rectangular wing with lift wing edge. Moderate dihedral. Good ratio length / size (0.78) for a good pitch tolerance and easy balancing. Tricycle landing gear to protect the propeller in case of scabrous land return. Large diameter wheels for tracks average on bumpy land. High wing for a natural tendency to return to horizontal. Logo DA (direct airscale) very visible to the underside (below) for tracking even from a distance knowing that beginners tend to leave “escape” their planes .

At the request of many experienced instructors despite that “tradition” requires a flat profile to the underside for beginner aircraft, we assigned an asymmetric biconvex profile our firsts for a lesser influence of wind or changes in engine speed. Obviously a 3 axes concept (with ailerons) was necessary so that the behavior is educationally significant under your thumbs.

Kit contains :

  • Light and rigid balsa and plywood construction
  • Hull and wings constructed and covered
  • Rigid aluminium landing gear
  • Large wheels diameter
  • Controlled front wheel
  • Spinner
  • Gas engine accessories (tank, engine mount,...)
