Tower Hobbies® Sport GP/EP ARF
Amazing aerobatics, everyday ease.
Whether you buy the Sport as a low-wing aerobatic trainer or your latest “kick back” aircraft, you’re going to like what it offers. Major sections are prebuilt and covered. The ailerons, elevator and rudders are prehinged and the generous hardware package includes a spinner and parts for a motor mount. It arrives with bays for mini servos already cut out, as well as outlines for standard servos. The semi-symmetrical airfoil provides stable, forgiving handling and easy landings for the aerobatic newbie, along with all the sport aerobatics an old pro could want.
