The Butterfly LLC Aurora Butterfly
The Aurora Butterfly is centerline thrust and has a huge horizontal stabilizer.
The airframe materials kit has pre drilled locator holes that will have to be re drilled to size and some of the tubes will have to be cut to length. The kit is intended for the experimental category where you as the builder fabricate at least 51% of the kit for recreation and education. The cheek plates and various other parts are cut to shape and have undersized locator holes.
The front landing gear, landing gear support, joystick, and rotor head washer are made from 4130 Chrome Molly steel and they are heat-treated. All the parts are either powder coated or anodized in this kit. The tail is made using Kevlar.
The G-Force Magnum All Terrain Landing Gear has 16" of stroke and has been tested to absorb up to 500'/minute vertical descent without failure.
