Beginner aircraft that transitions to an intermediate aircraft as your skills grow.
43-3/4 in. wingspan, 29-1/2 in. long, 291 sq. in. wing area, 26 oz. flying weight, Planet 5 2.4GHz radio system pre-installed. A good trainer airplane needs certain characteristics – it needs to be easy to fly, plus it needs to be tough. The Piper J-5 is tough; its EPO foam construction can take a lot of beginner abuse and keep on going. The generous wing area and high lift airfoil combine to make an easy to fly airplane that includes the bonus of great scale looks. As a result, a beginner can finally learn to fly with a real looking airplane that is modeled after an authentic full-scale Piper J-5. The scale details include a main landing gear that is an actual shock-absorbing unit with real rubber tires, plus the tailwheel is steerable and also scale in appearance. The scale engine detail brings the airplane to life and the working navigation lights complete the package.
