Pre-covered using high-quality iron-on polyester film
Fuselage includes motor mount and all internal wood structures already in place
R/C "Hotliners" originate in Europe and generally are electric aircraft with "T" tail configurations and flat wings. They fly much like powered gliders. But Hotliners can also climb straight up into the sky, plummet downward after cutting motor power, pull out of their dives just above the runway. High paced R/C you're going to want to try!

Using Lithium batteries will increase your flight times substantially while decreasing the final weight of the model slightly. The following are the recommended Lithium batteries for the Siren ARF. Brushed Sport Package This power system requires two 7.4V 1500 mAh batteries wired in parallel for a 2S-2P configuration. Required for this is: Two Great Planes Lithium-Polymer packs Two W.S. Deans 2-Pin Ultra Plugs WSDM3001 One W.S. Deans Wet Noodle Flex Wire WSDC1410 Brushless Option One This power system requires two 11.1V 1500mAh LiPo batteries wired in parallel for a 3S-2P configuration. This configuration will deliver slightly less performane than the 10-cell NiMH pack, but the run time will be increased to 5-6 minutes. Required is: Two Great Planes LiPo 1500mAh 11.1V 3-cell pack Two W.S. Deans 2-Pin Ultra Plugs WSDM3001 One W.S. Deans Wet Noodle Wire WSDC1410 Brushless option 2 Four 7.4V 1500mAh LiPo batteries wired in series and parallel for a 4S-2P configuration. This configuration will deliver the highest performance and 4-5 minutes of run time. Required is: Four Great Planes LiPo 1500mAh 7.4V 2-cell packs Four W.S. Deans 2-Pin Ultra Plugs WSDM3001 One W.S.
