The Sopwith Pup Story

Sopwith Pup RTFWith sensitive controls and the ability to remain fully aerobatic at up to 15,000 feet, the World War I-era Sopwith Pup was so light and maneuverable that it became the first aircraft to land on a moving ship in 1917. Nearly 1,800 Pups were built by Sopwith and its sub-contractors between the years 1916 and 1917 when it was at the peak of its operational development.

The Ares [air-eez] Sopwith Pup is a lightweight, three-channel ultra-micro semi-scale model of the original. It features durable foam construction and numerous scale touches such as molded wing rib detail, an authentic trim scheme, plus a wood texture and color propeller and interplane struts. Technically advanced the Sopwith Pup incorporates a Hitec Red 2.4GHz receiver that’s compatible with all current Hitec 2.4GHz aircraft transmitters. For convenience, two versions of this model are available both supplied with Hitec Red protocol: choose either Ready-To-Fly (including a Hitec Red-enabled transmitter and receiver) or Pair-To-Fly (supplied with a Hitec Red receiver that’s compatible with your existing Hitec air transmitter). Weighing less than an ounce, the Sopwith Pup is ideal for indoor flight or outdoor flight in calm conditions.
