This aircraft operates as both a
motorized glider and a plane. The huge wingspan in combination with
lightweight construction and the powerful 380 Mabuchi type motor provide
terrific lift. Once airborne at high altitudes simply use the variable
speed control on the transmitter to adjust throttle speed or simply turn it
off completely glide and collapse the prop in flight for maximum airborne
- Full 3 Channel capability with a
variable speed throttle control
- Digital proportional standardized radio
- Motor controller has a sensitive reaction,
has a low voltage drop and strong anti-interference.
- Interchangeable crystals are available on
3 separate frequencies making for trouble free competition or flights with
pilots who have planes up concurrently.
- Newer high performance turbo 380 motor
that uses low electric current while maximizing power.
- Easy for a beginner to operate because it
is lightweight yet has a sturdy construction.
- Reversible rudder and elevator controls.
- Battery: New and improved Ni-Mh (8.4V) for
longer lasting flight time.
- Neck-strap holder pre-installed on all
- Tow holes included under nose.
- Excellent high altitude slow
gliding/soaring. Extraordinarily stable to use as a UAV (un-manned aerial
vehicle). The plane can naturally take on the added weight of a
micro-camera with just minor adjustments to it's center of gravity.
- Excellent gliding function. By adjusting
the speed of the motor to a lower level of throttle, the prop will
collapse in flight to reduce resistance and maximize aero-dynamics.
The main and tail wings attach
easily so you can just charge the Ni-Mh battery flight pack and you are
ready to fly within hours after you receive the package. The battery pack
will get you about 10-12 minutes of flight time (more if you adjust the
throttle down or off at high altitudes and start gliding). The fuselage and
tail boom is made of durable sturdy hard poly plastic and the wings are made
of light weight molded and coated reinforced foam. The control rods are
steel and are pre-attached to the servos so other than attaching the wings
and charging the battery you are ready to fly!
The plane operates on 3
channels: one channel operates the elevator, a second channel operates the
rudder and a third channel operates the throttle control with a variable
speed control knob.
Beginners shouldnÂt fly the
3-CH R/C Airplane in more than about 8 mph (13 kph) of wind. However
experienced pilots should be able to fly the plane with confidence in 12-15
mph (19-24 kph) winds.
This plane is recommended for 14 years or
older, as the thrust and power of the turbo 380 motor will easily pull out
of a weak grasp. Also, this plane needs the full radius of it's 1600 foot
(500 meter) distance of control. So the pilot definitely will need some
unobstructed, cleared land in which to fly.
This auction includes an extra
propeller for free too!
