Description




Fuselage

Special tooling has been developed to make the fuselage as light as possible. Pressurized tooling allow for an extremely light weight epoxy fuselage with carbon fiber re-enforcement's. The model also has working doors produced from the lightest fiberglass and epoxy available. This not only adds to the realism of the model but allows for a very attractive display model showing an accurate replication of the real aircraft's interiors. 


Wing

3 piece wing design allows for easy wing removal and maintenance. Lightweight
fully sheeted balsa wing. Printed panel lines and rivet detail accurately positioned just like the real aircraft. All control surfaces are hidden in the wing including flaps and ailerons. The 75" wingspan allows for very predictable and gentle flight characteristics.


Landing Gear (Available Separately)  

Special landing gear has been developed for the Baron 58. The design allows for
a very scale like landing but also prevents the aircraft from bouncing back into the air. When on the ground, the 1" of travel is 90% compressed, and when on approach it is fully uncompressed, ready to absorb unfavorable surface conditions and also help the pilot in situations that are unexpected before touch down.

CNC machined aluminum scale landing gear system.  5mm hole for mounting to most retracts.


Scale Detail

Special attention has been given to the actual aircraft panel lines details. With all the scale features molded directly into the fuselage, it saves hours of time for the scale enthusiast. The information from Hawker Beechcraft plans and photos, the positioning of these items and details are extremely accurate to the real aircraft.


Scale LED Lighting System (Available Separately)

A scale lighting system is also available . Included are the correct lights, motherboard, and 2 switches for system control. NAV lights (red , green, flashing red, white strobes, and 2 landing lights).


Electric or Gas

The firewall has been specially designed to allow for both use of Gas or Electric motors.  Appropriate angled thrust lines have been developed to ensure safe and coordinated flight characteristics.

Power Recommendations: .32 - .46 glow or electric equivalent.

Our flight tests with electric show a very short takeoff distance. Using Eflite 32's gave the baron plenty of power for take off and sport flying.

For electric users, the removable nose cone and easy slide in / out battery tray provides quick access for battery install or changes. The design allows for 1 large battery or 2 smaller batteries.


Scale Cockpit / Interior  (Available Separately)

The scale cockpit and interior displays all 6 seats including the control panel with gauges.


SPECIFICATIONS

Rudder (1 servo) or can be combined with steering servo with flexible push rod
Flaps (1 servo) or traditional 2 servo per control surface


Technical Notes:

This is a very fast and clean airplane.  Using E-flite 32's provide very
good power.  E-flite 46's will power this airplane like a rocket.

On our test model, 3 bladed props were used but are not ideal for optimal
performance.  2 blade props will allow for more speed and longer flight
times.

2 battery configurations were tested with the Baron.

1 single 5S 25C 5000mah

With a 3 bladed prop, I was able to get around 7-8 minutes of good flight time without pushing it too hard. I did this using half or less on the throttle.

2 batteries -  5 cell 3300 = 7-8 minutes.

If I were to use 2 blade I could increase my flight times even further.

The Baron 58 is a very stable airplane.  A lot of emphasis was put into the design of the wing allowing for slow but stable approaches.  With all twins on approach, always keep power on.  The plane has been tested in 20 knot gusts and still holds wings level fairly well considering the conditions.

Flare and ground effect is amazing.  The Baron will glide in ground effect for quite some time before it settles into its specially designed spring loaded landing gear.  It's very soft and with the 1 " of travel you get from the strut, I sometimes almost feel as if I was landing a off road RC car or truck.  The gear is not necessarily designed to take extreme hard landings but to absorb landings on dirt or grass runways and keep the plane from bouncing back up into the air.

Not much is needed to get the Baron off the ground.  It basically lifts off on its own.  And does it in a very short distance.

For glow engines, quite a bit of weight will be needed up front to get correct CG.

Electric motors will need very little as the battery compensates for the needed weight in the front.

Customers will need to supply their own nose weights to balance the airplane.

Landing Gear Combo Package (Available Separately):

Complete landing gear system with retracts and working oleo struts. Includes CNC aluminum wheels.

Additional Information

History
The progenitor of the Baron was the Beechcraft 95 Travel Air, which incorporated the fuselage of the Bonanza and the tail control surfaces of the T-34 Mentor military trainer. To create the new airplane, Beech replaced the Travel Air's tail with that of the Beechcraft Debonair, streamlined the engine nacelles and rechristened the aircraft as the Baron.

Introduced in 1970, the Baron 58 has club seating, double aft doors, and a gross weight of 5400?5500 lb (2450?2500 kg), and is fitted with either the Continental IO520 or IO550 300 hp (224 kW) engine. The Baron 58 can cruise at 200 knots (370 km/h) at 7000 ft (2100 m), and is equipped with either 166 or 190 US gallon (628 or 719 L) fuel tanks.

In 1976, the turbocharged Baron 58TC and pressurized Baron 58P were introduced. These variants were powered by turbocharged Continental TIO520s of 310?325 hp (230?240 kW), had an increased 6100?6200 lb (about 2800 kg) gross weight, and were certified under FAR23 with a new type certificate. The Baron 58P/58TC models were capable of cruising at 200 knots (370 km/h) at 8000 ft (2400 m) and 220 knots (410 km/h) at 20000 ft (6100 m), and were typically equipped with 190 US gallon (719 L) fuel tanks.

A big change in panel/system layout on 58/58TC/58P occurred in 1984, including relocating throttle, gear, flap, propeller and mixture controls to industry-standard positions.

Although the turbocharged 58TC/58P variants were discontinued in 1985, the normally aspirated Baron 58 was still in production as of 2008.

The current production version is the G58, featuring a glass cockpit, improved passenger cabin and changes to selected airframe details.

In 2008, a new Baron costs roughly $1,000,000. Since its inception, the Baron has always been near the top of the light airplane hierarchy. As expensive to operate as it is to buy, the 'next step up' from a Baron is a very big one. Faster aircraft, with greater range and more load-carrying capability are generally turbine-powered and far more expensive.
