VMAR L-19 Bird Dog - Military Scale Nostalgia.

Dressed in scale military livery, VMAR introduces the nostalgic Cessna L-19 Bird Dog in two different military trims for exceptional scale definition that looks great on the ground and in the skies above. Constructed of a solid balsa and ply layup, the VMAR L-19 Bird Dog is an exact scale representation of the 19050's era L-19 Bird Dog, which provided the perfect observation / communication platform for the United States army.

Spanning 49" from tip to tip, the VMAR L-19 offers exceptional scale flight characteristics, with excellent low speed maneuverability & predictable stall performance. Amiable in character, the L-19 is rugged and tough, with its smaller size making it the perfect plane for limited area locales, such as fields, parks and smaller landing strips.

Incredibly easy to build with a bolt together, no glue assembly process, the L-19 Bird Dog requires minimal work, with a (3) to (5) hour assembly process. Fully covered in a Polycote ECS covering, the VMAR L-19 Bird Dog makes the entire build process a simplified affair, allowing you to spend less time assembling the aircraft and more time at the field and in the air.

Utilizing one servo per aileron for maximum precision and control, the L-19 Bird Dog was designed for electric power, making this plane incredibly easy to setup and maintain. Offering excellent bang for your buck value, the L-19 Bird Dog is ultra low in cost, and requiring minimal equipment to get in the air, equating to a full up build far less than comparable aircraft. Further this with a 2 piece wing that allows easy transport and storage, the L-19 provides is easier than ever to manage in the hangar or at the field.

Easy to fly with excellent levels of scale detail and quality, the VMAR L-19 Bird Dog is the perfect choice for beginner to advanced pilots, offering gentle flying qualities with scale realism that will be appreciated by all.

I am very happy with HeliDirect. My rc Vmar L19 Bird Dog was delivered on time and undamaged. I am very happy with the Bird Dog.

Great Little plane

Great performing little plane. Typical handling of similar Cessna type airfoils and wing loading. Powered mine with a 480 inrunner and 40 amp esc with 3s 1300 lipo from hobbywing. Flew today off the frozen lake with skis and couldn't be happier.

RTF vs ARF

Nice plane, but NOT for a beginner. I’m a novice, & there’s more to do here beyond attaching the wing & charging the batteries. Instruction sheet is pretty skimpy; not much info re installing radios and a motor. The plane is a 5- well made and packaged- but it isn’t for a beginner like me. Guess I need an RTF, this one is not “almost Ready-to-fly”...I think an EXPERIENCED builder/Flyer would like this plane- nice size and well made...at a good price. Beginner beware!

L19 Bird Dog

Great construction- tail was a little out of wack compared to wing. Battery compartment has no clear way to mount a battery. Have not flown yet.

Flying L19 Birddog

L19 Birddog is an excellent RC Airplane with a great look. I flew the full-size plane earlier in life, so this is a special plane for me.
