  • Models that are easier to travel with.

    The latest trend in GPS models is making them more easily transportable. Several are available now with 2 piece fuselages and/or removable fins. I will list all those that I am aware of below. If you know of any please add them to this thread. If you desire a model that is not listed, it would be worth contacting the dealer or manufacturer to see if they can make a version that breaks down into smaller parts. I know that Baudis will make 2 piece fuselages and multiple wing sections for any of his models if desired. For instance, the ASW 22 is available with a 2 piece fuselage and a 6 piece wing. I have the 6 piece wing and can attest that it flies and bends just like the 4 piece wing.

    Choco Fly ASW 17 has a removable fin and a 2 piece fuse is available.
    H Model Quintus is available with 2 piece fuse.
    AN 66 comes standard with 2 piece fuse and individually removable V-tails. Also available with a travel box that is sized to be used as checked luggage.
    Any Baudis model can be made with a 2 piece fuse.

    Choco Fly Apollo 46 Sports Class plane comes standard as multi-piece fuse and 3 piece wing that breaks down such that no part is more than 1.5 meters long.
