  • Flight-ready in 20 minutes!
  • State-of-the-art aerodynamics let you fly at unbelievably slow and comfortable speeds
  • The included RealFlight® NexSTAR EP Edition R/C Flight Simulator lets you practice flying even when you're not at the airfield

Active Flight Stabilization

NexSTAR is the only AFS-equipped R/C trainer! Sophisticated on-board sensors constantly monitor the model's attitude and adjust roll and pitch automatically to keep it flying level.

NexSTAR™ Precision Airfoil

Trainer airplane wings have flat-bottom airfoils. That's such standard practice that few manufacturers give it a second thought. Hobbico did—and designed a new wing whose unique, carefully researched shape actually features TWO different airfoils. The unique combination improves efficiency and lift for greater stability at all speeds, and especially at the slow speeds seen at takeoff and landing.

NexSTAR™ SpinControl™ Airfoil Extensions

If flying speeds slow so much that the main wing cannot produce lift, a plane 'stalls'—rolling to one side and possibly spinning out of control. These leading edge "wing droops" are another special NexSTAR safety net: They continue providing lift in a stall so that the wing remains level and you can stay in control.

SpeedBrakes™ Training Flaps

These unique flaps limit speed so you don't move faster than you can think and react. You might appreciate them most while approaching the runway for landing—they not only slow you down, but increase stability at the same time. Ready for a little extra 'zip'? Just remove the SpeedBrakes and go!

Out-Runner Motor Prop and Spinner

Reduce the AFS sensitivity

Using an ordinary screwdriver, you can dial down the sensitivity of the Active Flight Stabilization or turn it off completely. With the AFS no longer holding the NexSTAR on a stable flight path, you’re free to experiment with more challenging maneuvers, including mild aerobatics.

Installed, these components help your NexSTAR fly straight, level, and at comfortably slow speeds. Removed, you have new opportunities to advance your piloting skills by mastering faster flight speeds and exploring a wider range of maneuvers.

Install optional flaps or dual ailerons

Your photo-illustrated NexSTAR manual shows step-by-step how to upgrade your model into more than a basic, 4-channel airplane by adding operational flaps or dual ailerons. Mounts are already built into the wing, beneath the covering, for the additional servos needed to control them.
