Great Planes .40-sized bipe where NO restrictions apply. Now getting your hands on an aerobatic Ultimate Bipe is easier than ever before, thanks to the Great Planes Ultimate 40 Bipe kit! We've scaled down this frisky sport plane into a popular .40 size that makes it more affordable, without compromising style and performance. This modelill really bring out the "hot dogger" in you, while providing the ultimate in flying enjoyment!

  • Constructed of die-cut balsa and plywood
  • Plug-in struts and pre-bent aluminum cabanes
  • Fully-symmetrical airfoil, removable wings
  • ABS cowl and wheel pants are precision-formed for scale appearance
The included adjustable engine mount adapts the kit for several engine sizes; smaller engine sizes will fit entirely inside the cowl, preserving the model's scale lines. By positioning the pushrods between the ailerons, the Ultimate 40 Bipe requires only 4 servos for operation. Plug-in struts and wings that attach with only 4 fasteners are assembly short-cuts that the builder will appreciate.

Includes: Aluminum landing gear, clear canopy, ABS cowl and wheel pants, adjustable nylon engine mount, hardware package, rolled plans, instructions, and all balsa and plywood to build the kit.
