UGears Aviator: the very first flying machine model in UGears transportation vehicles collection.

Are you dreaming of the sky?  Fascinated by aircraft or simply a fan of aeronautics?  Then, the Aviator model is just what you need.  Become a flight navigator and a pilot and make your dreams come true with this exciting 3-in-1 set.

Consisting of 3 separate modules; the flight control tower, the helicopter and the airplane; this model is great for beginner pilots and for experienced old-timers.  The control tower is used to launch and navigate aircraft, set them into roll and pitch modes and control speed and motion.  Choose one of two aircraft, attach it onto the tower bar and you are good to go.  Start with the helicopter, if you are a beginner pilot. Easier to control and manipulate, the helicopter has all the basic elements of a real aircraft: three-blade main and tail rotors, a cockpit with opening doors and a landing gear.

The airplane module has a higher velocity and requires more skills to operate.  It’s designed is based on a prototype of wire-braced airplanes, with a 5-piston motor and may require a couple hours of flight training. Whichever wayward bird you choose to fly, the Control Tower is your cockpit and the main navigation device.  Its high-performance motor powers the swashplate, with the attached bar, that is used to connect the airplane on one side and has a balance weight on the other.  Get your flying helmet on…hold onto the wheel and get ready to become airborne! With UGears Aviator, the sky is your limit!

How UGears Aviator Works

The Aviator is a 3-in-1 wooden mechanical model, that is also a 3-D puzzle.  After the assembly is complete, it becomes a fully-functioning, hand-operating toy, suitable for both kids and adults.

The control tower is the model’s operating mechanism that has two control bars: the control column, that regulates the roll and pitch, and the motor controller, that adjust the speed of aircraft.

After all the modules are assembled and your aircraft is in place, it’s time to wind up the operating tower motor.  It takes no more than 25 turns for a full wind.  To lunch, either one of your flying machines, release the motor’s controller lock, while holding onto the control column and aim for the sky!

    My teenage son wants to go into mechanics when he goes to college. I bought him this gift for his birthday. I can’t wait to see the look of delight when he opens his gift.

    I’ve built various models of one kind or another for nearly 60 years. I bought the UGears Aviator on Kickstarter and was astonished at the level of engineering in this kit. This was my second kit (I built the Trimaran a couple of weeks ago). The Aviator took me roughly 30 hours to assemble it, but the instructions were clear, the pieces precise, and the overall assembly as imagined. The engineering is about the best I’ve seen in a wooden model. I can only imagine how this was developed, but the final product is astonishing. And it worked the first time! I did have to use super glue in a couple of places to reinforce or fix problems, but it was minimal. This is not a weekend project for a 10-year old; but if you like a challenge, have the patience, and want to see something amazing, UGears has a kit for you!

    My nephew loves airplanes. He has since he was a kid. I’m glad that I found the perfect birthday gift for him. I also love how the process of building the model captures people’s attention the same way it did with my nephew.
