TwinStar 25 Twin ARF
The easy ARF way to twin-engine thrills!
The TwinStar ARF arrives mostly prebuilt, so you're just a few hours away from takeoff! Underneath the pre-applied film covering are a fuselage and wing sections made of interlocking wood parts for durability and low weight. Unlike other twin-engine models, there's no shared fuel tank or servo. Each wing on the TwinStar ARF has its own fuel tank and servo, so if one engine fails, the other won't be affected. Positioning the nacelles near the centerline prevents "spin-ins" resulting from uneven thrust, so you'll still have the power and control to perform rock-solid loops and rolls before coming in for a soft landing. Even with its dual engines, the TwinStar handles much like a single-engine R/C plane of comparable size, and the wing attaches easily at the field with nylon bolts, and is removed just as quickly for the ride home.
