This is the Great Planes ElectriFly Super Sportster EP Sport ARF Airplane. The Great Planes Super Sportster was engineered to keep weight to the minimum; this model excels with affordable sizes of LiPo batteries and brushless electronics. Install the RimFire .25 outrunner motor for exceptional performance. The fiberglass cowl and wheel pants reduce weight and simplify assembly there's no cutting or painting to be done. The rest of the model uses high-quality, built-up wood construction, covered in MonoKote film. Assembly can be completed in just a few evenings, thanks to such timesavers as factory-hinged ailerons. Even the Super Sportster starbust graphics are already applied using MonoKote film!

Despite its economical and easy-to-transport size, the brushless Super Sportster EP ARF isn't a delicate park flyer it's always ready to perform beautifully without waiting for those rare "perfect" flying conditions. Relaxing on low rates, the brushless Super Sportster EP is a great first low-wing model. More experienced sport pilots can firewall the throttle and watch it really move!
