Top Flite Gold Edition Elder 40 Kit

Gold Edition Elder 40 Kit

Vintage looks – with today’s technology

The Elder 40’s legacy began in 1985, when it was first introduced by Top Flite. Modelers immediately took to this nostalgic-looking kit, and Elder 40s filled the skies at flying fields everywhere. Now Top Flite is bringing this classic back, with one major distinction: Gold Edition CAD engineering, for the most straightforward, most accurate assembly possible. The result is a scale replica of an aviation legend that’s a joy to build, as well as a pleasure to fly!

  • An ideal second model — can be flight-ready in just a few weekends.
  • Features assembly aids such as pre-shaped leading and trailing edges and built-up wing tips.
  • Handles as easily as any sport plane, with “wind in the wires” excitement.
  • CAD-engineered, all-wood parts interlock precisely to produce a strong, straight structure; photo-illustrated instructions guide you through the building process step-by-step.
  • The radio compartment with servo tray offers plenty of room for simple installation of a 4-channel system.
