SportyRC Laser-cut Kit

(1 customer review)

From: $98.00

The SportyRC™ is simple 3-channel (RET) trainer that teaches basic building and assembly skills. The SportyRC is simple for the novice builder and utilizes both traditional and tab and notch construction techniques. This precision laser-cut kit features all of the laser-cut parts, strip wood stock, and hardware to complete our SportyRC.

Entry level pilots will delight in the SportyRC‘s stable and predictable handling. The SportyRC features a shock absorbing landing gear and wing mount – both designed to absorb the difficulties dished out while training the new pilot. This model will outlive those crumbly foam trainers that bring no satisfaction for builders and allow you to revel in your workmanship. Build It!

    Can’t say enough good things about this plane. It was a joy to build. There is enough instruction to get you where you need to be but not so much that it feels like your hand is being held. It came out well balanced with a perfect CG. I just did the maiden flight this morning and it flew really well. I did not have to trim it at all. It does great at various throttle speeds. It flies well at slow speeds which gives this novice pilot a lot of time to react. I think it will also be great at faster speeds when I get the nerve to throttle up a bit.

    I also want to commend Stevens Aeromodel for excellent customer service. There was a small error in kit I received and it was fixed in a very expedient manner. I will definitely be ordering more kits from this company.
