  • Factory built and pre-covered all wood construction
  • One-piece pre-covered win with plywood wing joiner
  • Factory covered in genuine Top Flite MonoKote
  • Easily accessible plywood reinforced radio compartment
  • Painted fiberglass cowl
  • Pre-formed wire landing gear features 2.1" foam main wheels and 1" tail wheel
  • Single servo aileron control
  • Hardware package included
  • Engineered to keep weight to the minimum, this model excels with affordable sizes of LiPo batteries and brushless electronics. Install the RimFire™ .25 outrunner motor (GPMG4675) for exceptional performance.
  • To access the spacious battery compartment, just lift off the magnetically secured hatch cover. You'll find plenty of room for easy installation of the recommended LiPo batteries.
  • The fiberglass cowl and wheel pants reduce weight and simplify assembly — there's no cutting or painting to be done. The rest of the model uses high-quality, built-up wood construction, covered in MonoKote film.
  • Assembly can be completed in just a few evenings, thanks to such timesavers as factory-hinged ailerons. Even the Super Sportster starbust graphics are already applied using MonoKote film!
  • Despite its economical and easy-to-transport size, the brushless Super Sportster EP ARF isn't a delicate park flyer – it's always ready to perform beautifully without waiting for those rare "perfect" flying conditions.
  • Relaxing on low rates, the brushless Super Sportster EP is a great first low-wing model. More experienced sport pilots can firewall the throttle and watch it really move!
  • A 1982 advertisement described the original Super Sportster 40 kit as a "hot-looking aerobatic bombshell". That description also fits this brushless EP version – whose 21st century ARF engineering and construction produce the best-looking, best-flying electric Sportster to date!
