When the Champion Aircraft Corporation introduced the mildly aerobatic Citabria (airbatic – spelt backwards) in 1964 pilots fell in love with its handling and flight envelope but it wasn’t long before they craved an aeroplane with even more potential. Capable of sustaining stresses of +5 to -2g ‘outside’ manoeuvres were simply not possible so Champion set about designing something to satisfy.
Rolling off the production line in 1970 the 8KCAB Decathlon was capable of sustaining aerobatic stresses of between +6g and -5g and, accordingly, was an instant hit.
Modelled on Xtreme Decathlon N62FE, beautifully detailed and with an impressive 122” wingspan, Seagull has excelled itself with this large scale fully aerobatic 50cc aerobat. Fully stressed for advanced and 3D aerobatics this beautifully finished model comes built and covered to Seagull’s exacting standards, with some lovely scale touches to boot. Look forward to a hinged cockpit door, scale struttery, beautifully painted and finished glass fibre parts (including cowl and spats), acres of cockpit space, a fully sprung tail wheel, lights, flaps, bracing wires, fixtures, fittings and soft furnishings… Okay, scratch the soft furnishings. Anyway, you get the idea, Seagull’s 50cc Decathlon is a lovely, lovely thing.
