"In the Fight" Realism
Full-scale Zeros were intricately-constructed and incredibly agile aircraft that required months of training to fly. This Sport-Fighter version gets you to the flight line faster than with any kit and, once there, is an easy flier for anyone transitioning from a high wing trainer AND a plane that can "tear up the sky" doing aerobatics. Soar in a piece of history today with the Sport Fighter Zero ARF.
Fast, easy assembly
Excellent sport flier
Realistic trim scheme
A large, magnetically-attached hatch makes accessing onboard gear and LiPo batteries quick and easy.
The ailerons are operated by individual servos. This allows fine tuning of the ailerons and flaperon mixing.
