The T-34 Mentor for sale by Beech was the primary trainer for the USAF, USMC, USCG, and USN since 1953. We detail over 15 T-34 Mentor scale model radio control airplanes here. The aircraft is still in use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps, plus a number of countries around the world.

The first T-34 Mentor for sale was equipped with a Continental piston engine. With only 225 h.p. pulling the aircraft through the air, it was generally underpowered. In 1973 the Mentor's engine was replaced with a P&W PT-6 550 s.h.p. turboprop. The result was an aircraft that was vastly improved.

Pilots of the aircraft are impressed with its all-around visibility. Stalls, both power on and power off, are easily controlled. Controls are light and the aircraft is extremely aerobatic. It seemingly can performs loops, rolls and stall turns at just the thought of a pilot. However, changes in power settings require corresponding changes in aircraft trim for straight and level flight.

We have read pilot reports saying that the non-turboprop T-34 Mentor exhibits very little warning through the control stick indicating that a stall is imminent. However the turboprop model is said to gives a multitude of warnings. Perhaps that is a function of the longer nose moment of the turboprop powered aircraft. We would appreciate hearing from pilots about their experiences with both aircraft.

Perhaps the most famous T-34 Mentor is the one flown by Julie Clark at air shows around the country.

Before production ended in 1990, over 2,300 T-34 Mentor aircraft were sold.
