The Swiss company Pilatus produced 322 B4 from June 1972 up until the rights to manufacture were sold to a Japanese company (Nippi). This was the sole glider manufactured by Pilatus. The B-4 all metal sailplane was considered to be the ideal sailplane for flying clubs and private owners. It offers quality, robustness, safety, performance, superb handling and a full aerobatic capability (version PC11-AF) with minimum maintenance costs.

With a span of 4.5 meters this 1:3.3 scale Pilatus B4 is one of our finest Super Scale gliders.  The cockpit comes completely finished with control columns, upholstered seats, seat belts, and many other scale details such as instrument mushrooms complete with instruments.  The true to scale canopy is hinged sidewise and includes preinstalled working sliding windows that allow access to the canopy locking mechanism. All that remains for the builder to do is add a scale pilot for complete realism. Lot of details have been added to the molded surface, fuselage and wings to reproduce as accurately as possible, the metal paneling and rivets of it's full size counterpart.

The wings and all control surfaces are of very accurate hollow-molded construction.  It features a modified Naca airfoil which gives this fine model its smooth and versatile flying characteristics. This model is really  comfortable on a slope and can bring hours of great flight when aero-towed. Its thermalling performance is excellent and the wings are very strong to withstand heavy aerobatics.

With the level of completion of this glider, only a few hours of work are required before it will be ready to take to the air. The wings and control surfaces are hollow molded and completely finished. Servo wires preinstalled. Airbrakes are installed and ready to be connected to your servos. The wings feature the full size interlocking wing joiner system, all carbon reinforced. The high gloss, gel coated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner system and the rudder control tube installed. As well, the functional retract, tail and nose wheels, and a fully functional aero tow release are installed. Decals are applied. A small package of hardware and building instructions complete the kit.

Radio requirements are two high torque mini servos for the ailerons, two mini servos for the airbrakes and four regular servos for the elevator, rudder, retract, and tow release.
