Gohbee first introduced the Stinger 30 helicopter kit in the US in June of 2004, then the Stinger 50 in December of 2004.
In February 2006, Gohbee introduced the Stinger 60 and Stinger 90 kits. In this issue, we'll look at the Stinger 50 and Stinger 90,
which are two of the best sellers for Gohbee. Stinger designer, David Ellison looked at what was the bestseller on the market
and recognized the Raptor has been the most successful. They used the Raptor design as a base and added new touches.
The end result is all Stingers have 80 percent parts compatibility with Raptor 30, 50, 60, and 90 kits. All parts below the rotor
head are directly interchangeable with Raptor parts. The Stinger rotor head is an all-new design.
The Stinger main rotor geometry, mixing arm location, and control ratios are different.
Stinger 50 (w/OS Hyper 50) This almost-ready-to-fly (ARF) .50 radio controlled helicopter.
Comes complete with all the standard Gohbee Stinger features and a fiberglass canopy.
Many of the parts below the rotor head are interchangeable with the 50-size Raptor chopper
and you will find flying the Stinger heli even more of a thrill with its easy control characteristics
and full 3-D capability.
Gohbee went out of business in 2009!
