Airbus A300


Being the first plane of Airbus in 1974 a total of 567 A300s has been produced. Nowadays many planes are being converted from passenger to freighter configuration.

The modelplane has good flight characteristics. The older variants A300B2 and A300B4  -  usually called A300B  -  are conventionally controlled by inboard and outboard ailerons but the more advanced A300-600 is lacking the outboard ailerons using the wing spoilers instead.
