At under $40 delivered to your door, this is the lowest cost three channel airplane currently available. Find it here http://shrsl.com/?fm2a It’s also easy to fly, and can stay in the air for close to twenty minutes. Although it’s been around for a while, it’s still a great beginner’s aircraft.
– This is an inexpensive, yet great flying aircraft. Very good for new fliers.
– As a trainer, it is easy to fly. If you get into trouble, just let go of the sticks and it will quickly right itself.
– Long flying aircraft. I got close to twenty minutes of flight time with its 3.7V 500mah battery.
– Should also be able to use widely available/cheap 350 to 380mah 3.7V white Losi batteries. Although you will get less flight time, it should still be over 10 minutes with these smaller batteries.
– Not a windy day flier. You’ll need a low wind day to fly this (less than 5 MPH).
– Not acrobatic by any means. It’s not meant to be. It’s designed to be a stable learn-to-fly airplane. Thus it’s just very hard to do loops or rolls with this.
