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!

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.

Plug-in struts and wings that attach with only 4 fasteners are assembly short-cuts that the builder will appreciate.
