--This is a guide to 1/72 Edgley EA7 Optica, a completely new mold product from Ukraine's Avis.
It is a fixed-wing aircraft that can realize a special observation helicopter at low cost. The fuselage configuration is equipped with a Repsiro engine behind the cockpit with good visibility of three parallel seats, and a duct fan type propeller is inserted in the cylindrical central fuselage, and a boom is projected from the rectangular main wing to support the tail wing.
――Optica is a British aircraft designed with the concept of realizing an aircraft with the characteristics of an observation helicopter, such as being able to fly at low speeds and having a wide field of view, at low cost with fixed-wing aircraft.
――Since it was designed as an observation aircraft that requires a wide field of view, it has a cabin with a front glass that has the nickname of [Bug Eye] and a view below, and it is wide for the size of the aircraft. Therefore, it has a structure different from that of general fixed-wing aircraft, such as having three parallel seats.
--The main wing is a straight wing, and the tail wing is an arch type supported by a twin boom system.
--A ducted fan equipped with a Lycoming horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine is used behind the cabin.
――The price of the aircraft is at the level of a small helicopter, and the cruising range, flight time, and pilots can handle it without helicopter qualification.
--Some police have introduced it.
――This injection plastic kit will have a total length of about 113 mm and a total width of about 167 mm when completed.
