This smooth-flying highly aerobatic indoor model is a pilot pleaser. With nimble handling and a wide flight envelope, the LiddleRod is a convincing aerobat, yet features forgiving handling not common in similarly sized aerobatic models. Large round loops, rolls, snaps, stall turns, Immelman turns, split-s, and cuban eight maneuvers are well within the scope of this easy to fly three channel aerobat (Rudder Elevator Throttle).
Beginning builders will appreciate the simple assembly, innovative self jigging components, and low parts count of this high quality balsa kit. Durable construction makes unintended encounters with the ground a non-event and damage is easily fixed at the field in seconds with thin CA glue.
A relaxed one evening build and aerobatic antics that will be the hit of your next indoor flying session, position the Stevens AeroModel LiddleRod as the seasons hottest indoor kit built model.

These are a major upgrade for Eflite, ParkZone Ultra Micro and Kyosho Minium series micro RC models, and fit either without modification. With Hyperion's G3 technology inside, they deliver more mA per gram than the stock batteries, while sustaining higher voltage under high loads, for greatly improved power performance. Of course, like all Hyperion G3 Lipo they last for hundreds of cycles, with consistant performance, when properly charged and stored.
The fact that they can be safely charged at up to 5C rates - for charge times as low as 10 to 12 minutes - is just icing on a very tasty cake.
