Dynam Gee Bee Y 1270mm (50") Wingspan - PNP - DY8955PNP

The Gee Bee Model Y Senior Sportster was a sports aircraft built in the United States in the early 1930s by the Granville Brothers. Essentially an enlarged two-seat version of the single-seat Sportster, it was a low-wing strut-and-wire-braced monoplane of conventional—if short-coupled—design with open cockpits and fixed tailskid undercarriage. The first of the two examples constructed was built for the Granville Brothers company itself and served as a support aircraft for the R-1 and R-2 racers and also for competition in its own right.

Dynam's Gee Bee Y PNP is ready for the all the races and barnstorming you can imagine! All you need is a 4 channel radio, 4 channel receiver and 3S 11.1V 2200 mAh Li-Po battery and you're ready for a hair-raising, thrill-inducing ride!

Solid Plane

This is a nice looking plane and is quite sturdy. It looks great in the air too! But the control rods were stripped on arrival so the clevis connectors would not thread- had to contact motion to get a new set of rods- but they were cool about it and they arrived in 2 days. Getting the new rods in required a real feat of engineering with some MacGyver input. But I got it done. COG is very touchy on this plane with a very small margin so mark you battery location carefully once you figure it out. I also had a LOT of trimming to do once I got it to fly flat. After what felt like 6 maiden flights I finally got it dialed in and it’s a blast to fly. It’s a pylon plane so it likes to go fast and turn on a dime. I would recommend this plane for someone who knows what they are doing but it’s. It for the beginner or “straight out of the box” flier.

A new motor

I did it. I flew my GB last weekend and was unpleasantly surprised. It was SLOOOOOOW. It flew but resenbled a crawling baby more then a racer. I broke down and did it. I replaced the motor and ESC. I put a 46 motor and a 60amp ESC in it. It's now 5s capable. I tried it so I can say I did it. It literally took me out of my seT, and screamed to be let go. If she even halfway flies like it tested, I have a speed demon. She's still unflown beefed up though.

It flys

Flew my gee bee today. SLOW is an accurate description. It looked quick on the video review, but looks can be deceiving. I'm going to change out my motor, and put a BIGGER prop on it. Hopefully it'll be done soon. We shall see.

Awesome build.

I'll admit, I haven't flown it yet. I did get the build done though. It took aprox. 2 hours (I work slow). Now the question. Will this plane handle a 4s? My esc is burried in the fuselage so I couldn't remove it to verify it. It comes with an XT60 connector. It will run 3s batteries but I don't want to frie the ESC with a 4. Please emme know.

No issues

This plane went together very well. None of the issues people have had in the past. Maybe Dynam fixed them all. Everything aligned well. I did have to drill out the tail wheel bracket one size because it was binding the rudder a little but no big deal. I’m impressed. Beautiful plane. Excited to fly it!

Thought I was ready for this great looking racing plane I fly many EFITE planes including commander without issues. Installed a Admiral Gyro Receiver to play it safe with my new Gee Bee balance was nice with a 3200 3cell only flew plane two times control surfaces all worked correctly even panic button. Had two hard to control flights was not ready for this plane crashed hard forced landings to examine why plane flew so uncontrollably expert only plane

Last GeeBee Y Racer I

Last GeeBee Y Racer I owned was disappointing. The wing snapped after the spar on a start of a loop. I'm hoping it isn't repeated with this one. Other than that it's a good flying platform. It's very stable and easy to fly.
