IPSmotors, one of our Team 3D Hobby Shop pilots, has put together some great build videos for most of our ARFs. You can find them here on his vimeo page.
These videos are well-made and give some great building tips for beginners and pros alike.
This is build video #1 for our 70" Slick. Check out all his build and flight videos on vimeo!
We rigged up our 87" & 103" Extras with Xerogear LED lights- they lit up the whole field at night! (Credit goes to Brian Chitty for the above pic.) Check out this video on our YouTube channel-
This vinyl will be available for the 70" Slicks as well. Great job as usual, Rob!
If you were at SEFF or the Fly-Low-In this year, you saw some of these amazing little planes fly.
By popular demand, they are now in production as a pre-painted EPP kit. To see how they fly, check out our YouTube video:
