|The Westland Lysander was a British army co-operation
and liaison aircraft produced by Westland Aircraft and
was used immediately before and during the Second
World War. The first Lysanders entered service in June 1938,
equipping squadrons for army co-operation and were initially
used for message-dropping and artillery spotting. British
army co-operation aircraft were named after mythical or
historical military leaders; in this case the Spartan general
Lysander was chosen.
The New Seagull Westland Lysander 3000m has an accurate
scale outline with superb flying characteristics. It is made of
high quality balsa and plywood covered in genuine oracover
film, and has a detailed cockpit with a painted pilot figure
with an amazing matte finish. All necessary hardware are
included for either glow or electric power system.
As a suggestion, the engine size could be 33cc-55cc
gasoline 2 stroke or 40-60cc 4-stroke. It is also ideally suited
to the OS Saito 5 Cylinder Radial.
