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.

Overall a nice model. The placement of the Rud/Elev servos had to be modified. After you assemble the stops on the servo arms they are too high to sit in the designed place. I had to mount them lower than designed so the pushrods would align with the stops. The tail wheel mount required a modification also. Both modifications were easy fixes.

Plane arrived with no damage, plane is well made and looking forward to flying when the weather is not 20 below zero. Can't beat the price even with the shipping cost.

Great flyer!

Beautiful model, easy to build but it does take a few evenings. A+ for the complete hardware package. Great scale flyer, would recommend to any modeler who is considering it.

Beautiful model, easy to assembly, however I would recommend using Freewing servos as they slide into the wing and fuselage without trimming. Haven't flown it yet because of weather.

Construction materials

Very poor elevator design and materials. Wood very thin and frail. Not sure will control flight.

This was my first ARF. It went together pretty quickly. I had some foamie crashes so I already had the parts. Well worth $100 to have another plane. I put a piece of wire between the two main wheels to stiffen them up on landing. Two broken propellers later I realized this was a quick easy fix for soft landing gear. Also had a missing part that was replaced immediately by helidirect. All in all glad I bought it. Large top hatch gives access two cockpit where I put a camera. Large bottom hatch gives access to work a battery will go. I used 2200 4s But a 3S power system is all that is needed. It’s a lightweight plane.
