Available Package Options
A legend has returned, get ready for the revamped 1600mm A-1 Skyraider. This model has been reworked with features that have only been made available on the most recent releases. From up close, this legend hardly looks like it’s made from durable EPO foam because of the high-quality paint and a beautifully finished cowling that is built with rigid plastic. This model makes use of solid electronics by flying with digital metal geared servos, metal e-retracts, metal landing gear struts, a hefty 5060-270KV 22.2V brushless motor, and 80A ESC. Features such as an easy-lock canopy hatch, fully accessible servos, and screw-assembly for all the major parts make this model a breeze to put together and maintain. This plane uses AS-150 Anti-Spark 7mm plugs to safely handle the high-voltage power system.
