Seagull Zlin

Mar 09, 2012 2 Comments by

Aerobatic planes are always a favorite with modelers and one of them that is sure to stand out from the crowd, the Zlin.  Now Seagull has this great looking 67-inch wingspan Zlin ARF kit that not only looks great but can also perform.   The instructions include both glow and electric setup.  For the glow setup, you will need:

- 6+ channel Transmitter and Receiver radio system
- 5 Servos
- 1500mAh+ Receiver Battery
- .75-.91 2-stroke, .91-1.15 4-stroke engine
- Propeller
- Glow plug
- Fuel

If you want to see the electric setup, be sure to check out the June Issue of Model Airplane News.

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    I have one of these Seagull Zlin’s with a DLE30 squeezed into it which is my regular flyer. It is one really exciting plane to fly and agree 100% with the review video on its flight characteristics. Its an awesome plane!

      Can you tell me how did you manage to put the DLE inside and not have the spinner far from cowl? In the manual it states for 140 mm from firewall to prop flange, the DLE has 162mm and RCG 26cc that I want to mount has 169mm. Some pictures of mounting and reinforcements or a link on some forum about this plane would be great.
