Microaces Percee Privatair Twin Engine Kit
What is Percee?
Based on 1930s twin engine passenger aircraft (the Percival Q6 'Petrel' being a predominant influence), the Percee is the first twin engine kit designed by Microaces.
The classic 'Golden Age' look of the Percee, with wide fuselage and fixed, faired undercarriage is wildly nostalgic and lends itself to multiple livery options with very different and appealing results.
Many Percival Q6 aircraft were sold to private owners because of the aircraft's handling, passenger carrying capability and speed. Microaces Percee Privatair represents this important category in the Percival Q6 history and carries the registration G-AFFD allocated to a Q6 still in restoration, that is rumoured to complete in 2023.
Up the realism with LED Lights
The NEW Microaces LED Lighting Kit (B) is now available to order (shipping June 2022) in a package with the Privatair Kit, saving 20% over buying the LED Kit B separately. It includes wingtip navigation lights, anti-collision and landing lights PLUS the LED Control Unit. This easy to install enhancement adds another level of wonder to an already eyecatching model.
The Privatair + LED Lighting Kit is also supplied with clear vac formed lenses for all of the LED bulbs, providing a scale look for each light even close up. The kit also includes vac formed spinners for a pefect finish to the prop hubs.
The Privatair kit can be purchased as:
Kit Only - Everything required apart from motors & electronics.
Kit + Flight Pack - The Kit plus 2 x Long Motor/Gearboxes with GWS4530 & GWS4530R props & adapters, 1 x 5 Channel Micro Receiver with integrated twin 5A ESCs, 3 Axis Stabilization and 4 x 1.7g rotary servos.
Kit + Flight Pack + LED Lighting Pack B - The Kit plus Flight Pack (as described above) plus Microaces New LED Lighting Pack B, including wing tip navigation lights, anti-collision light and two landing lights, LED Y cable and LEC Control Unit.
The 5 Channel receiver can be programmed to provide differential thrust for additional yaw control and adjustment of the on-board stabilization.
As well as a comprehensive Assembly Guide included with the kit, there is a series of Youtube videos that guide you through the build. Created by the Percee kit designer and full of additional tips, tricks and guidance, this playlist will help immeasurably with your Microaces build.
If you are unsure of your ability to build this beautiful kit, you no longer need to be concerned. The support you get with a Microaces build is second to none!
