This is a very cool plane. From the Tron:Legacy movie, this is the 3 person Tron Lightship that the good guys flew in the last battle scene.
Check out the build thread on RCGroups -
The Tron Lightship 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 but weight is very important with this plane. It definitely needs to be built light.
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, 1000mah 11.1v 3s Lipo Battery and 9g Hextronic Servos.
I purchased a cool LED and Fiber Optic light tube kit and it makes a really cool effect on the plane that makes it look a lot more like the on in the movie.
