Fairchild Model 24 Argus 2357mm (92.79") Wingspan from Black Horse - Balsa Wood ARF - BHFA000

The Fairchild Model 24, also known as the Fairchild 24 Argus, is a four-seat, single-engine monoplane designed as a light transport aircraft in the 1930s. It was used by the United States Army Air Corps as and by the Royal Air Force. It was developed from previous Fairchild models and became a successful civil and military utility aircraft.

Designed for operations from relatively unimproved grass airfields, the sturdy undercarriage construction used a vertical oil dampened cylinder above the wheel with a pivoting strut attached to the lower fuselage. The result was a complex but robust undercarriage that could absorb the large loads imposed by rough field operations and could be adapted for the fitting of twin floats for water-based operations.

The model is scaled to approximately 1:4.7 and attention was paid to a true to original appearance and best flight characteristics. The model can be operated using an electric power system or with an internal combustion engine about 30-35cc displacement.
