Aerodyne's rc King Air project measures 88 in. wing tip to wing tip, and has a fuselage that is 70 in. in length. Included are working flaps and retracts. Construction is a carbon fibre and fiberglass fuselage with epoxy molded wings. It needs 1600 to 1700 kV motors for power. Weight is around 13 1/2 lbs.


The King Air, produced by Beechcraft, has been flying since the mid 1960's. There are more King Air aircraft than all other twin turboprop aircraft of their type.

Flying the King Air is like piloting a roomy mid-size jet. Should you lose an engine during takeoff, an automated system will feather the prop of the powerless engine and provide proper rudder compensation for the engine with remaining power.

Pictured above is Carl Lynnerup and his terrific 144 in. wingspan scratched built rc King Air. It weighs about 55 lbs. The turboprop engines were built by Carl. They put out about 40 lbs. of thrust each.

The King Air features the latest all glass cockpit displays. Controls are logically laid out and easily accessed. Most systems have dual redundancy. There is an automated fuel distribution system.

TeeboxII from RCUniverse built the rc King Air shown above. It has a 90 in. wingspan, weighs around 23 lbs. and is powered by O.S. 70 two stroke engines.

While the heavier forces needed to control the King Air reflect the larger size of the aircraft, they are well coordinated, smooth, and responsive. Engine power is sufficient so that a fully loaded aircraft can easily climb at 2,000 fpm. Best economy cruising is at about 28,000 feet and 345 mph. The winglets become more effective at higher altitudes.

The rc King Air built by W747 aka Rodger of RC Universe has a 74 in. wingspan. We do not know its length, weight, or the type of power used. If you do, we would appreciate hearing from you.

The large passenger cabin of the King Air is jet like quiet due to the distance of the motors and propellers from it. A noise reduction system uses sound absorbing materials to prevent the fuselage structure from amplifying engine noise. A low 1,500 rpm propeller rotation at cruise speeds also keeps noise levels and vibrations down.

The 109 in. wingspan RC King Air project by Mike James appears to never have been completed.

An improved air conditioning system keeps the crew and passengers comfortable while on the tarmac on the warmest of days. Fourteen large tinted cabin windows give the King Air cabin an airy feel and provide a great outside view. Cabin seats are large and comfortable, with diffused lighting above, individual reading lights, and individual storage chests.

The rc King Air by the Heli Shop CH is a toy that uses two channel control. It comes ready to fly with a wingspan of 19 in. and a length of 15 in. It is electric motor powered and turns using differential motor thrust. Altitude is controlled by the throttle. It will climb when throttle is advanced and sink with less throttle. Included are radio, flight battery, and charger.

The U.S. Navy purchased a total of 64 King Air aircraft in 1979 and added a 4.3 foot x 4.3 foot cargo door, calling it the UC-12b. They fly cargo, passengers, and MEDEVAC missions over land bases.

A total of over 6,650 King Air aircraft of all types have been built to date.
