The “bigger is better” beginner plane!
Large and lightweight, the all-balsa Butterfly trainer flies so gently — with a confidence-building slow cruising speed — that first-timers will soon be soloing successfully. You’ll have plenty of time to observe, think and react. The kit simplifies assembly tasks by including machine-sanded ribs and preshaped fuselage sides. Despite the impressive dimensions, getting it to and from the field is no problem: the wing disassembles into two easy-to-handle pieces.
