The fastest growing segment of RC
aviation, slow flyers and park flyers have something for everyone.
From the new flyer to the advanced stunt master, there is a backyard
flyer to suit your needs. The planes can be like the Lite
Stick or J-3 Stick and be based on the rubber powered flyer of
yesteryear. These planes can be put together in about 2 hours
with no more than a modeling knife, glue and screwdriver. The
kits are made up of a balsa fuselage, foam wing and tail, an
electric motor and gear box and a plastic servo mount. These
planes are an great way to get started in Slow Flyers. Add a
transmitter, micro receiver, two sub-micro servos, speed controller,
battery and charger and you are ready to fly. Flight times with stock batteries are usually around 5-7 minutes.
These are probably the most heavily modified planes around and this
may account for a lot of their popularity.
