Boeing 737

 

The 737 is the world’s best selling airliner with more than 7000 aircraft having been built up to now. First generation 737-100 and -200 had long engine nacelles but for the second generation (series 300, 400, 500) advanced CFM56 engines with wider nacelles were used. Today only New Generation 737s (series 600 – 900) are in production.

Due to its small size the modelplane is not as easy to fly as a larger one. A lot of experience is therefore required for piloting this plane. It is recommended to use gyros on ailerons as well as on rudder.
