A beautiful R/C Golden Age
Racer sport-scale R/C model kit, our 85" wingspan Giant-Scale Gee Bee Z builds super-light to tip
the scales at just 16 to 18 pounds, giving it the best handling and landing
characteristics of any GeeBee Z model offered anywhere!
With the Jack Devine GeeBee Z model,
much of the work has already been done for you. Imagine opening the box and
finding a fully-formed foam frame waiting there for you! You won't have to
imagine what your model is going to look like framed up. The frame is
done, the shape is already complete! All that's left to do is follow the
easy video instructions for capping, sheeting, and installing some hard points
like a firewall and landing gear blocks, and your model is ready for gear and
finish! Once you look at it you'll realize with a GeeBee Z this size just
how quickly you can be in the air compared to a stick-built model. There's
just no comparison in building time, a Jack Devine model builds faster every time!
3-point landing or not, GeeBee Z's are known best for going fast!
The Gee Bee Z was
flown to a world speed record by Lowell Bayles in 1931. This was the first
of the short, chubby Gee Bees that America would fall in love with. The
Gee Bee 'Z' was on it's way to claim another world speed record when it crashed
in a ball of flame, utterly destroying the one and only 'Z' and killing Lowell
Bayles instantly. This crash brought Americans to the realization that the
burgeoning advances designed to achieve more and more speed could come at a
terrible price. Of the many air-speed record-seekers that the fans watched from the
stands of the air races, only a few lived to become old men (or women). The daring
and sacrifices of these pioneers gave us the technological advances that would,
just a few short years later, help America and the Allied forces to take control
of the skies in WWII.
The Jack Devine Gee Bee 'Z' is an excellent flying model,
with light wing loading and terrific strength. The large wheel pants take
you back to the 1930's, and this Golden Age racer is easily
built using our step-by-step instructional video, as with all Jack Devine models. The video guides you through the
capping and sheeting of all foam pieces, and the gearing up for hardware,
mounts, etc. Are you wondering about the processes involved? This
website also has building articles filled with a variety of tips and techniques
to help answer many of your construction questions, both now and after you start
building your Jack Devine model!
