Introduced in 1985, the full-size Lancair ES homebuilt kit enjoys a very high rate of successful customer completion — a reputation shared by Great Planes R/C models. This easy-to-assemble ARF duplicates the smooth lines and curves of the original aircraft in strong, lightweight fiberglass...expertly capturing the original's "racy" looksand swift aerobatic performance.
Assembles in as little as six hours.
Includes a perfectly matched Speed 400 motor with gearbox, 30 amp electronic speed control, 1800mAh NiMH battery, spinner, and prop.
Wing panels remove for easy transport, and plug-in quickly and easily for flight.
Clear canopy locks in place with magnetic power, but removes effortlessly for quick battery access.
You can take your first flight the same day you open the box! The fiberglass fuselage, wing tips, wheel pants, and cowl come expertly painted, and the built-up wood wing and tail have film covering already applied.
Great Planes selected fiberglass as the best material for the fuselage, wing tips, cowl, and wheel pants — due to its low weight, strength, and ability to recreate the full-size Lancair ES aircraft's smooth contours.
Like the full-size Lancair ES, this electric model has fixed landing gear in a tricycle configuration that offers the option of a steerable nose wheel for greater ground control. White fiberglass wheel pants provide a crowning touch of detail.
For a clean installation, the gearbox mounts in front of the firewall. The motor bolts in behind it. Cooling holes in the fuselage supply ventilation.
"Like the original — whose speed, flexibility, and sound construction suit it well for cross-country flight — our electric-powered Lancair ES satisfies any busy pilot's need for convenience and performance."
