The very finest engineered trainer, sport and scale models—precision-crafted, assembled and covered at the factory. Seagull Models have flyability built-in and the work built-out!
Seagull Models have specialized in designing and manufacturing Almost-Ready-To-Fly (ARF) R/C model aircraft since 1998 (starting with the dream of Nguyen Huynh Phat, Founder of Seagull Models - it all began with a love of models). Today, Seagull models have become one of the largest and most experienced R/C model aircraft manufacturers in Vietnam and Asia.
Airframes and flying surfaces are all factory-built, covered and decorated. Just add your engine, your R/C, undertake the final assembly of components and you are ready to take to the skies!
Take a look at the fastidious attention to detail, the laser-cut components, the pinned and glued hinges, the finished and installed servo trays and pushrods and so much more. Every aspect of a Seagull crafted model is meticulously implemented with the last word in customer satisfaction in mind.
The science of lasers
Seagull have built up a large suite of advanced laser-cutting machines guaranteed to supply the most precise of components used for ALL AIRCRAFT from trainers to sport and right through to big scale aircraft. At Seagull Models, laser-cutting is not reserved just for the larger, more expensive models in the range.
The science of CAD and materials
In fact, state-of-the-art CAD software and materials science combined with the most fastidious engineering techniques are right at the core of the Seagull approach. CAD software with lasercutting allows Seagull engineers to produce components that improve the scale appearance and strength in ways that were not possible previously. The implementation of Materials Science can be clearly seen in Seagull’s use of custom 3-ply laminated balsa sheeting. This material is nearly as strong as plywood but is mainly balsa and it feels, looks and weighs like balsa! Indeed, so strong and light is it that many experienced modellers assume it is normal balsa sheet. It is, however, many times stronger than the traditional balsa sheet that is used in most other model aircraft.
Oracover—the science of Covering
Most people take for granted the amazing strength, the incredible puncture-resistance and the fantastic temperature-tolerant attributes of the amazing German Wunder-Materiel that is Oracover covering film. It is used to cover all Seagull models except trainers.
Fly as Glow or Electric
The latest Seagull models include an electric conversion kit for FREE allowing you to fit an electric motor of your choice instead of an IC motor! There is a comprehensive set of instructions in the manual on how to do this. Look for the IC/EP logo on the box!
Fittings kits included
Comprehensive hardware packs containing wheels, tank, clevises, etc., are included with Seagull models as are detailed, photo-illustrated step-by-step instruction manuals.
