  • StevensAero - axis™ (XS480), laser-cut aerobatic model airplane kit

    The XS480 (AXIS)™ builds on the excitement and aerobatic prowess of the original SHAFT 480™ it replaces. Sporting our unique D-Truss™ wing construction the AXIS features a thick symmetric airfoil, low wing loading, and generous moments to dish out smooth and precise handling regardless of the airspeed, alpha, or aerobatic maneuver thrown at it. Updated aggressive styling, hard points for the addition of optional floats, and strategic reinforced of the wing and tail groups with carbon composite materials position the AXIS to become your next timeless classic.

    Product highlights:

    • 25% increase in size over competing ARF without an increase in weight!
    • Removable wing, tailgroup, and landing gear affords easy transport.
    • Simple two evening frame up thanks to revolutionary precision Laser Engineered™ components.
    • D-Truss™wing construction reduces warping and reliance on covering for wing's torsional rigidity.
    • Spar and tail group are strategically reinforced with carbon composite materials.
    • 480 class airframe is ideal size and weight for park-flying and small field flying even on windy days!
    • Produced from the finest hand selected and sorted balsa and hardwood components.
    • Innovative shock absorbing lading gear stays with the airframe on arrival.  No more running out onto the runway to retrieve your undercarriage due to a less than perfect arrival!
    • Comprehensive DuBro hardware package featuring wheels, landing gear, push-rods, ez-connectors, ez-links, and control horns.
    • Illustrated instruction manual and clear computer drawn plan set leaves nothing to the imagination.

  • StevensAero - SHAFT (400) Electric RC Airplane, Sport/Parkflyer [SAK-SHAFT400]

    The SHAFT (Super High Performance Aerobatic Flight Trainer)... fills the void between our basic 4 channel "stik" trainers which are designed for positive stability and our higher performance G series models which are designed for unlimited aerobatics.

    Light and efficient airframe... Designing at elevations well over a mile high forces us to create more efficient air vehicles that overcome the atmospheric density challenges of high altitude flight. Through intelligent use of materials and good old fashion engineering we are able to provide a better functioning product.

    Simple Construction... Even the novice can build the SHAFT! Featuring a low part count of 100% precision laser cut balsa and hardwood components. Warp resistant wing construction, Carbon fiber capped flying surfaces, Truss Loc(tm) and tab and notch assembly techniques assist you to build a straight and true airframe that stays true.

    Under-Carriage designed to stay with the plane upon arrival... Our beefy landing gear derived from the SQuiRT will absorb anything the novice pilot can dish out and won't tear out of the fuselage.

    Flies like a bird not a brick... We bet you'll overshoot the runway! the SHAFT's semi-symmetric airfoil and a flying wight over 1/2 pound less than competing models add up to one agile bird that insists on staying aloft.

    Minimize Collateral Damage... The SHAFT's wings easily slip from the fuselage and the landing gear flexes and shifts to avoid unnecessary bench time between those exciting arrivals.

    Take it on the road with you... The SHAFT packs flat and is itching to go with you on your next road trip.

    Kit Includes:  Full Size Rolled Plan Sheet Precision Laser cut AAA balsa and hardwood Pre-Bent Landing Gear Full hardware complement - real premium DuBro hardware. You'll need 1-2 rolls of your favorite colored AeroLITE or AeroFILM product. See "Specifications" tab for radio and power system requirements.
