The Taylorcraft 130 Story
The Ares™ Taylorcraft 130 is a scale model of Clarence Taylor’s classic 1936 design that offers stability perfect for first-time pilots and capable flight performance experienced pilots will enjoy. The lightweight, durable foam construction and ultra-micro size make it possible to fly in smaller outdoor spaces like a yard or park, plus the airframe arrives 100% factory-assembled and ready-to-fly right out of the box!
Features like the full-airfoil wing design, struts and wheel pants offer solid flight performance and a great scale look and the unique airframe design assembles with magnets and interlocking parts for easy maintenance and ‘no glue’ repairs. Plus, unlike other similar class models, the Taylorcraft 130 is designed so it’s ready to upgrade to brushless power and aileron control without challenging, time consuming modifications. The affordable Brushless Power System Upgrade Combo (sold separately) includes a brushless ESC, motor and mount that installs easily in just minutes and the optional ‘clipped’ aileron wing quickly ‘snaps’ in place of the standard wing to offer full 4-channel control and aerobatic capability.
The Taylorcraft 130 is available in RTF (Ready-To-Fly) and WOT (Without Transmitter) versions that include a factory installed receiver and onboard electronics as well as a class-leading 200mAh 1S 3.7V LiPo battery. The RTF version includes a 4-channel transmitter equipped with 2.4GHz technology and a convenient built-in LiPo battery charger while the WOT version includes a DC USB charger and is ready to bind/link to compatible Ares 2.4GHz transmitters like the transmitter included with the Trainer 100.
So whether you’re a first-time pilot looking for a stable airplane you can grow with or an experienced pilot looking for a capable and scale ultra-micro model that you can easily upgrade, there’s no better choice and no better value than the Taylorcraft 130!
