There is nothing more spectacular that showing up to your flying field with a Remote Control
Star Trek Enterprise-A !!!
Check out the build thread on RCGroups -
The Enterprise is a great flying airplane with very gentle handling and a pretty wide speed range. It is a 3 channel system with Aileron, Elevator and Throttle so any 3 channel or higher radio will work. It is capable of light aerobatics and with the recommended power system it can go vertical right into space!
I am offering this plane as a CNC Cut Foam kit out of the popular Model Plane Foam.
The kit goes together very easily with as there are not very many pieces to the kit. You will need to provide all of the build hardware: Carbon Tubing, Carbon Flats, Gorilla Glue, and Pushrod wire.
The recommended hardware uses a low cost Brushless Motor, 2200mah 11.1v 3s Lipo Battery and 9g Hextronic Servos.
The build guide provides links for all hardware that is needed.
I am now offering this kit with custom designed printed skins - Ready for applying! The skins are printed on tissue paper and designed to be applied with Spray Adhesive and Acrylic Clear Coat. This makes a beautiful highly detailed plane that has a nice glossy finish.
The pictures show how the final product will look.
If you are looking for the plane that will definitely draw a crowd the Enterprise-A is it!
