This is the closest thing to an Almost Ready to Fly airplane that we have ever carried! Includes a 20:1 ratio rubber winder and 80 inches of FAI competition rubber, making this a great value.
This portable EPS foam and stick balsa aircraft is quickly and easily assembled thanks to simple clip-together technology. No cutting and no glue is required! Designed by Tom Sanders, a member of the AMA Education Committee, the Alpha is built to withstand crashes. Because of the durability and design, when flying time is over the airplane may be swiftly disassembled, packed in its included box, and taken home to fly another day.
The Alpha features: A fully molded main wing (18" span) with built-in airfoil and polyhedral made from easily repaired composite EPS sheet. Fast assembly and disassembly with movable main wing mount for center of gravity changes. Molded aileron, elevator, and rudder tabs for trim changes. Comes with illustrated instructions.
Teaching and demonstrating the principles of aerodynamics has never been easier (or more fun) than with the all-new AMA Alpha rubber-powered airplane! This model performs really well - check out the video and see some flights at 9:42.
