It is a 3 channel (no ailerons) plane.
The kit is easy to build (as I said above, this was my first ever laser cut balsa kit) and it comes with everything you need except the motor and electronics.
Have fun if you decide to get the kit.
Thanks Jon! I might get this to build during the cold days. So, is it hard to cover? Also, How do you add stripes and stuff to it like the one in the picture?
