  1. Roc Hobby Stagger Wing

    Posted by Chris on 28th Nov 2014

    When I was looking for a smaller plane to take to the field the stagger wing caught my eye. After receiving the plane and opening the box it looked great until build time. The wing mounts in my opinion need to be stronger or at least reinforced-top and bottom I realize that it's just a foam plane but they could of done a better job in that area of design.
    Everything else went together very well the only thing that I would suggest is to check all pre-installed fasteners for tightness especially the landing gear screws…they were all loose.
    Other than that it's a great little plane.


  2. Great Plane.

    Posted by Peter on 26th Nov 2014

    I love bipes and was looking for a plane with flaps and retracts when I found the Staggerwing. Beautiful plane. Easy build and best of all a great flier.

    Here is a video of my maiden flight:

  3. great looking Stagerwing

    Posted by Avantiman on 8th Oct 2014

    received package quickly and intact.
    the plane went together easily and quickly, and all functions worked . I will be installing a 3 axis gyro before maiden flight. I also added the wing rigging but did use the supplied springs. all in all a great looking plane, and as usual great price and service from MOTION RC.
    since I have not flown it, I cannot comment on the flight characteristics.


  4. Great plane in amazing detail

    Posted by Stephen Roy on 3rd Oct 2014

    I got this plane as a transition airraft from gliders to electric power. Exceipt for a few small errors in translation on the directions it was easy to assemble.
    One bit of warning on first flight. The plane does tend to tourque roll on the take off. It's not a problem if you are expecting it but the first few times I couldn't fingure out what I was doing wrong. Once I over came that tendancy, It's been a great flyer.


  5. Lots of Potential

    Posted by Konrad on 28th Sep 2014

    Out of the box this Staggerwing gets 3 to 3.5 stars not because she in mundane rather because what else is out there is better, out of the box. But with a little rework she can become a 5 star master piece!

    Lets get the negatives out of the way. The foam hinges are delicate and are poorly designed (they bind if the surface is moved very far). I used Robart hinge points (sold by Motion RC) to correct the robustness and hinge geometry issues.

    The stab is too flexible. The molded in spars should meet at the fuselage center line. Add some 3mm carbon tube to join the two sides of the stab.

    Now what really hampers this model is the front end. There is way too much down thrust! I had to remove 3° of down thrust using Ernst thrust shims between the motor and the firewall. I found that there is 50 grams of dead weight added to the nose. I removed these slugs and replaced this mass with a larger battery (3300 mAh 276 grams). I had to add some air cooling passages to the battery compartment as the battery fit tight (no airflow).

    Thinking that the need of so much down thrust was as a result of some trim issue I sanded the rear of the stab mount 1.5mm for some down stab trim.

    The last setup change was moving the aileron servo arms one splin forward so that they pointed about 30° forward with the ailerons centered. This gives close to 1.5:1 aileron differential (more up than down movement).

    With the above mods and setting the Center of gravity aft another 5mm (65mm from the leading edge) makes for a very nice flying Staggerwing that shows little trim change as the speed changes.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how little elevator compensation was needed with flap down at 15° and 45° (possible with the Robart hinges). She lands best on her mains. I have yet to make a graceful 3 point landing

    I will say that Testors Acryl Model Master paint Guards Red #4632 is a very close match to the factory red. Great for touching up some of the lighter (pink) areas of the model.

    I hope ROC Hobbies makes most of these correction in their next production run of this fine stately aircraft.

    Add 2 hours of work to your Staggerwing and you will have a 5 star model both on the ground and in the air!


  6. She's a kepper

    Posted by Kevin Frazier on 20th Jun 2014

    Plane looks & fly's great. Very easy build with spare parts. Unfortunatly on maiden had crash do too a bad clevice on one side of elevator. stripped out during flight took a hard dive into pavement. On my examination to find problem noticed clevice on one side of elevator was just sliding on pushrod. That side was in down position other side was neutral. Was able too fix wings and ordered new cowl prop spinner windshield & motor shaft. Would recommend better clevices. Dubro's would be better but will have to change pushrods do too size differince in threads. Minor upgrade still makes her a keeper. fly's & looks amazing in the sky. Also I painted white stripes on bottom of wings for better orientation. Thanks MRC for still a great plane and fast delivery. Happy flying everyone.


  7. Wow, the Beech Staggerwing beautiful and flys out of the box.

    Posted by Mike Krapf on 2nd Jun 2014

    Hi,
    I took my new Beechcraft Stagger wing biplane to this years SEFF event.
    I happened to met Rich Baker of RC Informer putting together a couple planes for the event. I told Rich I had just purchased the RocHobby Staggerwing from Motion RC, but had flown it yet. Rich said he knew of the model but had not had a chance to fly one yet. I got brave and asked Rich if he would help me and be the pilot for the maiden flight. Rich was so nice and informative, he provide a complete pre-flight inspection of the biplane. We went to the flight line and Rich provided that first flight and the model flew beautifully. It provides great eye candy flying down the field with the wheels retracted. I had a club member yelling at me; the wheels fell off. LOL


  8. Had to get another one

    Posted by Unknown on 30th May 2014

    Loved it so much even after "dumb thumb" syndrome attacked. Decided just to get another one and have the other a parts plane...


  9. One Beautiful Bird

    Posted by Michael M. on 6th Feb 2014

    I got my Beech a few weeks ago and put her together. Instructions are very easy to follow and had no problems. The scale is unreal on this plane. She is a sexy looker for sure. I have yet to take her on the maiden flight as it is just to cold and snowy here in the Rockies of Colorado. Will give another review on her maiden flight.
    Motion RC got this plane to me in days. Super quick to ship and it arrived in one piece. Plane is double boxed. I found Motion RC by mistake and I am glad I did. They answered questions that I had and just the customer service is fantastic. Thank You Motion RC.....


  10. a Biplane with retacts

    Posted by Unknown on 21st Dec 2013

    This is not a slow plane by no means. Finally got some good weather and this plane flys like a jewel. Fast I wasn't expecting it to be fast after all it's a biplane right. Fast and cool looking especially with retracts. It was looked at and was wowed.


  11. Lover of stagger wings

    Posted by Lenny on 21st Dec 2013

    I just run across this plane and ordered it, it came when they said it would and when i opened the box everything was in good shape!!! the plane went together very well, had extra parts left witch was amazing!!! most of the time when i build something there is always something missing! not in this kit, the plane is well constructed, everything fit very well, the plane looks awesome, i hope it flys as good as it looks


  12. Beautiful detail

    Posted by Chuck Martin on 19th Dec 2013

    The plane arrived in perfect condition and right on time. Motion RC is a pleasure to deal with and I will definitely purchase from them again. It's too cold to fly, but if it flies as nice as the quality, it will be a real winner. Only wish it had a pilot figure.


  13. Classy Biplane!

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Nov 2013

    I was unsure about this plane at first but it really impressed me in lots of ways once I got it. It doesn't need the flaps but they are nice to have. The lights also look great I wasn't expecting those! I really like the retracts which are improved from an older version I heard. The one thing is that the all red paint makes me have to pay attention or I lose what side is facing up because when the gear is retracted it looks almost the same. But the airplane has no bad habits and is very smooth and powerful. It shocked me how easy it was to fly. It has cool details like the engine, but beware that tying the little black rigging wires takes some time. I hot glued the little knots I tied to help hold them together. Super cool plane overall and I would definitely buy it again if this one ever crashed.


  14. COOL PLANE

    Posted by JOHN NOVARA on 7th Oct 2013

    Plane looks great! Took about a week for delivery here in Southern Oregon. Packed very well for the trip,and no breakage issues that I can see. I love these stagger wing planes. The detail is outstanding. Thanks guys! Don't change a thing:)


  15. Fantastic plane!

    Posted by Phil Strona on 2nd Sep 2013

    This plane is truly beautiful and the color scheme is very scale. The build was very easy including the flying wires. The very best part is how it flies. I flew it for the first time today nd it needed just a click of up up trim. With abut 10% flaps she slows down to a very sedate rate and flies like she is on rails. Loops and rolls are very easy and true. For landings I put full flaps on the base leg, turned final and she flew straight and slow to a very easy landing. I really love this plane.
