Proteus 2 Composite Bi-plane

From AJ

I wanted to share a new project that’s been in the works for a while now. Back in 2018 I designed The Proteus bipe 110 with this 2 meter version in mind. We started with the great foundation of the 110 size and then put what we learned from the 110 size in to this model. What we’ve come up with is a very good bipe in all weather conditions. The model rolls, tracks, and snaps just how I want with no compromise anywhere in flight characteristics. Not just designed for finals schedule where the prelims schedule can become more difficult. This model has really made me excited to go out and practice even in our uncertain times.

AJ aircraft and Marcelo Columbo worked together for many hours to create what I was looking for in my new biplane. AJ Aircraft will be selling these models, they are custom built so, when you order your model starts life. We will also be offering a building service that will be completed by myself. I will go from build the plane all the way through delivering a model and radio program for your specific model and be ready to go compete.

Pick your components, or supply the equipment and it will be installed just like I would in my personal aircraft.

Got knife edge?




The look of these F3A biplanes is not really for me.. but I LOVE seeing that AJ is designing something unique and catering to segments other than XA.

I just started flying the 2m Acuity a few weeks ago. It is a amazing aircraft so I would think that the new Proteus will be at an entirely new level..
Perhaps this will be this winters build!
