Despite its fairly large size, model aircraft Stinson Model O has a good control and high maneuverability, which essentially allows you to also use it as a sports vessel. Experts do not exclude that in case if the production of airplanes Stinson Model O was more prolonged, the project would find support and in the United States, where similar types of aircraft also had a high need.

On board the aircraft can accommodate two people - a pilot and gunner, if the aircraft were to be used as a military aircraft, the pilot and the passenger, if it was a civilian of the model aircraft, or else, the instructor and the student, when the aircraft was used as training aids.
