With the Pluma, the only thing between you and a full day of aerobatics is a few minutes of easy assembly on the bench. And once you're in the air, you'll discover all of the advantages of exclusive Pro-Formance™ foam construction. Ultra-light and wafer-thin, its power-to-weight ratio puts the entire aerobatic envelope at your command, from stately loops and rolls to hair-raising waterfalls and knife-edge loops.

  • You can speed the Pluma from box to flight-ready in only an hour! The trim scheme is imprinted and the fuselage is already assembled. All other parts (including the servo pockets) are laser-cut, interlocking and self-aligning.
  • Ailerons and elevators are beveled and prehinged with ultra-light 3M® Blenderm® tape – just like aerobats built for 3D competition.
  • The box fuselage provides the strength for aerobatics and ample room for a wide range of batteries. An easy-access hatch lets you switch packs in a few seconds.
  • The Pluma can perform brilliantly with the smallest of RimFire™ outrunner motors. But with its generous wing area, you have the lift (and flexibility) to performance-tune with any number of motor-battery combinations.
  • Attractive graphics and impressive, "full-fuse" appearance make the Pluma a standout any way you look at it!
