Product Description

The Piranha is a fast yet easy to fly small sports plane with retractable landing gear. The original model was available in the late 70s as a kit with a glass fibre fuselage and foam core wings. It was designed around the Webra Speedy 15 2-stroke engine (1.8 ccm) including resonance silencer. It did not have retractable landing gear as this was not feasible at the time for a model this small.

The 3d printable replica is designed for a brushless motor and a 3 cell lipo battery and sculpted after the original plan. The size fuselage cross sections and used Airfoils are identical to the original. For the original look, you can print a dummy of the engine (STL included) and glue it to the bottom of the fuselage. The silencer fairing can also be mounted if you care for the original look, but it has no other purpose on this replica.
