About the Bucker

The Bücker Bü-133 Jungmeister was a production biplane built in Germany before World War II and in Spain during the war. Its modest size, plus a high power-to-weight ratio, with ailerons on both upper and lower wings, made it an excellent aerobatic aircraft. The aircraft dominated the aerobatic scene in Europe and the United States during the mid-1930s and 1940s and its aerobatic performance was far greater than any other aerobatic biplane at that time.

The Seagull Model BUNKER BU 133 was designed with the intermediate/advanced sport flyer in mind. It is a semi-scale airplane which is easy to fly and quick to assemble. The airframe is conventionally built using balsa, plywood to make it stronger than the average ARTF, yet the design allows the aeroplane to be kept light. You will find that most of the work has been done for you already. The motor mount has been fitted and the hinges are pre-installed. Flying the BUNKER BU 133 is simply a joy.

Hi Jim, does this model allow for electric installation as most of the other seagull ships do? I like the electric motor mount provided with all my other seagulls (adustable box frame).

Looks good
They should list the specifications in SAE
Us old guys that buy this stuff are not proficient in the metric system and many times just pass over such an ad since most arf,s in years past were small glow powered planes which were always listed in millimeters

I don't think so. No electric conversion kit pictured and no mention of electric in the manual. It could be done on your own, of course, but the kit would be so much easier.

I converted an earlier version to electric (Bevo Howard version). I used a Power 160 on 10s 5000 lipos. It was way overpowered, but balanced without any additional weight. It was a rudder required airplane. I mounted the motor with standoffs I found at Home Depot. It was a good flying airplane. I dumbthumbed it in one morning. I may have to pick up this one, though I prefer Bevo's version. I've also got a Dave Platt version (same size) with the wings framed up that I guess I could get back to, lol.

The Bucker has always been a good flying design but some versions tend to have the FG a bit far back for my taste. These are tall bipes and when flying from grass, if the gear is too far back they tend to tip up on their nose or end up on their backs on occasion. No problems flying from hard surfaces. I'm curious how this version does on grass.
