The 902 Explorer is a modern eight-seat, twin-engine helicopter. It is often used as a rescue helicopter or for surveillance tasks. With its take-off power of 820 kW and a maximum take-off weight of 2948 kg, it reaches a cruising speed of 252 km/h. The prototype took off on its maiden flight in 1992. A special feature is the torque compensation by means of an air jet that emerges from longitudinal slots on the tail boom and laterally from a controllable nozzle. The air jet is generated by an adjustable axial fan in the fuselage, which is driven from the main gearbox. This system is silent and safer in the event of contact with foreign objects.

This model also reflects the geometrie of the original helicopter with high accuracy. Original documents and dimensions verified directly on the full-scale helicopter formed the basis of this construction. Thanks to the tail-rotorless concept, the mechanical installation effort is reduced to a minimum: There are no longer any gearboxes or drive shafts in the rear area. The entire drive system of the mechanics, including the motor, blower system and remote control, form a unit that is mounted on a platform above the cabin. At the end of the tailboom there is only a servo installed for nozzle adjustment.

Compared to the full-scale Explorer, the blower system has been implemented in a simplified design as part of the PLUS-Mechanik 902. It was developed with the help of calculations and test runs on the test bench. By evaluation of numerous series of measurements it was optimized for convincing performance.

The internal structure accommodates mechanics and landing gear and is already installed. Access to the interior is provided by a removable canopy.

Typical details, such as the profiled air intake for the blower system, the landing gear or the characteristic tailboom, are reproduced according to the original. In addition, scale cockpit equipment is available for this model.
