The ESM Douglas A-1 Skyraider, as with all of ESM's scale models, is loaded with features never before
found in such low priced ARF's, resulting in highly detailed, great looks, and great flying ARF's!
The detailed fuselage is poly resin fiberglass, with scale panel lines and rivets molded right in.
Wings are typical built up construction, include pre-designed cavity's and mounting blocks for optional scale retracts,
and have factory constructed flaps, all of which is then factory covered with an etched polyester film.
All parts are finally expertly painted right at ESM's factory, and once dry, all scale decals are pre-applied,
and are then covered with a factory clear coat for protection.
All ESM planes are painted with a very high quality enamel paint which is resistant to oil, grease, and fuels.
The high gloss paints are of course easier to clean than the low gloss.
These paints can be painted over for weathering and the like.
The ESM Skyraider comes from the factory with conventional gear and wheels, and one of the more complete hardware packages
anywhere...including screws, rods, fuel tanks...etc. ESM also offers a complete line of electric retracts for each individual plane,
adding to the level of scale realism that all scale pilots look for in an ARF.
