Gee Bee  'Z'

(Tuscon) Jim Lynch's Z settles in for a perfect 3-point landing.

Jack Devine's Giant-Scale GeeBee Z  R/C model kit  Price: $375.00 

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!  

The wings have pre-cut control surfaces, servo pockets, and wire channels. Included is all of the balsa you will need for sheeting, a generous hardware package consisting of hardware, landing gear, and a fiberglass cowling, and of course BIG fiberglass wheel pants and a Lexan canopy are included as well!  Click on the small kit button below to see a really large photo!   For photos of an actual customer's model, click on the small photo below to see the photo page.  We've been told by customers that this is a SUPERB kit, and that the model draws a real crowd at any field!

Building Time:   This kit can be built in as little as 25 hours with minimal building experience.

Flying skills required:  Average Flyer to advanced.
