Product Description

Details

This Hacker EPP glider is supplied with a Sprint 400 (7.2V) pod-mounted brushed motor and push-fit prop so that it can be used as an electric powered 3-channel glider. It can also be assembled and flown simply as a 2-channel tow-line glider.

It is highly pre-fabricated from tough EPP. All parts are keyed together allowing assembly in a few hours using standard CA. The clearly illustrated instructions assure that even a first time builder will be successful. The model handles so well that it makes an ideal project for the novice with little or no experience.

The EPP Foam construction makes the Sky Star very resilient to crash damage. EPP breaks cleanly, which allows you to repair it with CA glue in A few minutes.

Easy to hand launch, it climbs well with the recommended power system providing flight times in excess of 15 minutes.
