This is the E-Flite PA-20 Pacer 10e ARF Electric Airplane. The PA-20 Pacer was Piper’s answer to the four-seat family airplanes offered by Cessna and Stinson who were capitalizing on the post-war general aviation boom. Eager veterans used their G.I. bill to earn pilot certificates and needed a “family car of the air” for travel that the venerable J-3 Cub used in training simply could not accommodate. The E-flite PA-20 Pacer 10e ARF airplane replicates the full-scale Pacer for RC pilots who want an iconic scale experience great for hopping out of small fields. Not only does its outline and color scheme closely honor the original, you also get high-end interior appointments, scale looking landing gear, plus optional flaps for greater control at a wider range of speeds. Even more satisfying is the short amount of time you’ll need for this classy lady to be flight-ready.

From the authenticity of its traditional construction to the richness of its UltraCote finish and high-gloss fiberglass cowling, the E-flite PA-20 Pacer 10e ARF delivers a scale model with outstanding flight characteristics so that you can look like a class-act both in the air and on the ground. The recommended E-flite power system was designed around popular and economical 3S LiPo batteries to provide great performance for scale maneuvers as well as picture perfect touch-n-gos.

Well yes the flap you need to think a little about it I agree, But just a little common censes will do. But the front cowling only really lines on one side but over all is ok. What really needs to be mentioned on this plane's CG. This plane should of come with a removable battery tray, but it is not that hard to just make one:) I used a 35 size motor and a 3300 Battery and set the battery all the way up front under the motor and the CG was perfect. The other strange factor it the weight of this plane, man like a brick. So I recommend you change you wheels with dubro low bounce wheels ( the stock wheels are pretty bad). I would say this plane is very simple to fly and assemble and looks really good and performs like a champ:)

Still waiting to put it up but wanted to share the experience so far. Model is covered nicely with almost no loose areas. Upon further inspection I found a severe vertical stab warp. I am waiting for the replacement fuse. A Main was great at sending me a new one. Worked on the wings meanwhile. Be careful with installing flap and aileron servos. Used hitec micros and the openings needed modified. Also be aware that the flap servos mount opposite from each other. One faces outboard the other inboard, just match the control horn mounting on the flaps themselves. The instructions are very vague, simply saying repeat previous steps for the other wing. Also the wheel pants already had drilled holes and machined flats on the axle. NiCE!!! Eliminated a lot of tedious work. Seems like a nice model but somewhat lacking in the instruction set. Needs better pics, sometimes it is difficult to tell orientation.
