The smaller brothers of the radiocontrolled trainer models. At first glance, and seen from far away theres no distinguishing, but they are made from Elapor, a lightweight material. Come out and fly with one of these gems and bring a small tube of glue, and you are prepared in case of a bad landing.
This type of planes are fabricated so the flying will be as smooth as possible, with great aptitude to plan beacuse of its longer, wider wings on top of the plane. Alos, they tend to have dihedral ("V"-shaped) wings, making them very stable in the air.
Generally there are monoplanes of biplanes, they are characterized of their quick response from the radiocontrol, and they are able to fly at higher speeds. They are accurate and able to make any type of maneuver. Inside this category there are also 3D models.
Scale models and replicas of mythical aircraft models, that are able to transmit the sensations of actually flying a plane with these characteristics.
These models are characterized by increased wing area.beacuse they rely exclusively on the wings for their support. Their elevation are acheived by rising thermal currents. Like the rest of these models, they can have a motor just for take-off, or they can be completely free-flying.
First person view flying has grown in popularity as has the technology which makes this form of flying safe and affordable. Our FPV models have been designed specifically to allow you to add any FPV and camera system, easily. Not sure where to start? Take a look at the Sky Surfer 1400mm.
Free flight (F/F): model aircrafts fly without external control from the ground. This type of model pre-dates manned flight.
