  • Quality balsa and ply construction

Flying with twin motor power is unique and exciting, and the Great Planes TwinStar EP ARF is the ideal choice for making it happen. Setting up the brushless motors (sold separately) is easy, and the nacelles are positioned near the centerline for more stable flight. And because it’s Almost-Ready-to-Fly, you can have this quality-constructed, professionally pre-covered model in the air in just a few hours!

  • Two motors add an extra level of excitement to flying, and you don’t have to tune them together perfectly like glow engines.
  • A large, magnetically-attached hatch makes for quick access to the flight battery.
  • The tricycle landing gear is a breeze to install, and offers better ground handling than a taildragger.
  • The ailerons are operated by individual mini-size servos. They’re easy to install, and allow for fine-tuning of the ailerons and flaperon mix.
