It has many animateable features including ailerons, flaps, elevators, rudder, retractable landing gear and nose gear doors. Propellers are animated. The engine, engine mount exhaust and intake systems are modeled. The cowling can be removed to show the engine and propeller at a moderate distance. This model is fairly detailed and includes the ELT antenna and pitot tube as well as some interior cabin features and controls. Included are the yokes, throttle and engine controls, new instrument panel and seating. It comes in 8 formats and was updated in February 2017.
