When you've learned the ropes and you're ready to move up to a plane with more maneuverability; the Avistar Elite ARF is the bird for you. This plane has high-wing design to make it easier to handle. It also has a semi-symmetrical airfoil so you can perform more aerobatics than with many trainers!
The Avistar ARF is also customizable. Assembly is still easy and glue free, but with this plane you can choose between glow and electric power. You can also choose to install flaps on your craft for additional maneuvering options. In all, the planes modular construction speeds assembly and makes replacement or exchanging of parts a breeze.
