The Bayraktar TB2 combat drone is part of Ugears’ Armed Forces of Ukraine model line, created to inspire people in difficult times. This can-do UAV is a medium level model, meant for those with a bit of modeling experience or anyone up for a moderate challenge. The model has movable rudders on the inverted V-tail structure, moveable wing ailerons, a moving surveillance camera under the body, and detachable missiles under the wings. The Bayraktar TB2 combat drone makes a buzzing sound when in operation, adding to the realism of this DIY wooden drone model.
After russia's February 2022 full-scale invasion of its neighbor, Ukraine, a new word entered the hearts and minds of both Ukrainians and the invaders: Bayraktar. For Ukrainians, the Bayraktar unmanned aerial vehicle, or drone, means protection, retribution, inspiration. For russian commanders and troops, death and destruction.
The Bayraktar TB2 is a medium-altitude long-endurance unmanned combat aerial vehicle capable of remotely controlled or autonomous flight operations. It is manufactured by the Turkish company Baykar Makina Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. The largest operator of TB2 drones is the Turkish military, but an export model has been sold to the militaries of a number of other countries.
With their near-invisibility to conventional air defense systems, their surveillance capabilities, glide bombs and laser-guided missiles, Bayraktar drones have stopped the advance of armored columns, taken out command posts, and destroyed fuel trains, helicopters and radar stations. They even served to distract the anti-aircraft defenses of the moskva, flagship battle cruiser of russia's Black Sea fleet, before it was sunk by Neptune missiles. Manufactured in Turkey, the Bayraktar TB2 is a simple, relatively inexpensive drone (one-sixth the cost of a U.S.-built Reaper drone), but it has had outsized impact on the conflict and even the culture of Ukraine.
The Bayraktar TB2 combat drone model has movable rudders on the inverted V-tail structure, moveable wing ailerons, a moving surveillance camera under the body, and detachable missiles under the wings. The Bayraktar TB2 combat drone makes a buzzing sound when in operation, adding to the realism of this DIY wooden drone model. The model has a built-in ratchet key to wind the spring motor, which transmits power and rotation to the wheels and spinning push propeller. A start/stop lever on the side of the drone allows you to control the drone's movement. To operate, just give the winding key about 6 complete turns, place the model on the floor or other flat surface, flip the start lever to the upper position, and watch as your wooden UAV model taxis down the runway, ready to take off on its next secret mission.
The Bayraktar TB2 combat drone model kit has 125 parts and promises 3 hours of entertaining assembly. This can-do UAV is a medium level model, meant for those with a bit of modeling experience or anyone up for a moderate challenge. As you begin your assembly, make sure to place the elements on the correct side of the main body. Lightly sand and lubricate all moving pieces for optimal function, paying special attention to the gears that intersect at a 90 degree angle, in order to avoid wedging. As always, if you break a piece during assembly, contact our outstanding customer service team and we'll send you replacement parts free of charge.
