Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this have a carrying box?

    The plane and transmitter come in a box with formed styrofoam, which nests everything well. My son keeps all of his planes in the original box for transportation, and it works well.

  • Does this plane come with a remote?

    Although it is a 3 channel plane as you say, it ships with a 4 channel remote. The remote controller is common across all of horizon hobby's various brands' low end RTF offerings - identical (under the stickers) to that for the mCX 4 channel helicopter for example.
    And that is why the "4" in the part number. The radio technology is 2.4 GHz spread spectrum. Unlike with cheapy toys that come in a few distinct "channels" this has many different sequence codes, which the transmitter and plane agree on when they link up before each flight. So you can have many of these at one field without mutual interference.

  • Does it take off on grass and is it one of those planes with landing gear that you have to throw to take off

    It doesn't take off on grass, but it will take off from a paved surface just fine. You can also hand launch it if you like.
