The Focke-Wulf Ta 183 Huckebein was a design for a jet-powered fighter aircraft intended as the successor to the Messerschmitt Me 262 and other day fighters in Luftwaffe service during World War II. It was developed only to the extent of wind tunnel models when the war ended, but the basic design was further developed postwar in Argentina as the FMA IAe 33 Pulqui II. The name Huckebein is a reference to a trouble-making raven (Hans Huckebein der Unglücksrabe) from an illustrated story in 1867 by Wilhelm Busch.

This easy to build kit will create a buzz at the field with this unique edf jet that has great flying characteristics. The RBC kit features construction of balsa, plywood and abs plastic to make an easy to build/repair. The Huckebein can be a tame or advanced aerobatic edf jet for the seasoned jet flyer. The kit contains all parts cnc cut including all wood to finish the kit. A large clear cad drawing is also included and also the vacuum formed canopy and nose cone. Features a hatch for easy access to the battery and receiver area.

Fences have been added to the wings, these are necessary for good flying as without them the TA183 can spin out of the air With the fences installed it is a delight to fly.  The TA183 is capable of flying at very fast speeds with the HET 2W or 3W motors.  It will fly even faster with the HET 2W-20 on a 4s.
