West Michigan Park Flyers Highlander Super Stol bush plane



Introducing West Michigan Park Flyers Highlander Super Stol bush plane

The Highlander is a full fuselage EPP 3d bush plane, capable of very short take offs and landings. Its large control surfaces allow it to do many acrobatic maneuvers. The wire landing gear is nearly indestructible and with the large foam wheels the Highlander easily rolls over grass, payment, and dirt. With its high 40" wing the Highlander also makes a great beginner plane. Each aileron is controlled by its own servo enabling flaperons and spoilerons.
The Highlander kit is only available at http://www.wmparkflyers.com/

Here are some of the Specs:
- Wing span 40
- Length 30
- Wing area 312 sq in
- Weight - (without battery) 9 oz
- Wire landing gear
- 3" EPP wheels
- Center of gravity is 2 1/4 from front edge of wing.
- Motor: 2208 1200 KV
- Prop: 9x5DD
- Battery: 800 mah to 1800 mah 11.1 V
- Speed Control: 18 Amp
- 9 gram servos, 3 total
- 5 gram servos, 1 total



Kit contents:
9mm laser cut EPP foam.
6mm carbon tube wing spar.
3mm carbon tube elevator spar.
1.5mm carbon control rods and tail trussing.
Plywood horns, motor mount, wheel rims, and landing gear base.
Wire Z bends.

Wire landing gear will be sold separately, so that you can chose to build your own or use the landing gear from your last Highlander.

Great flying facility in Brighton MI ... went to check it out with 3 highlanders. Had a blast. We got some great pictures and video. Stay tuned. Joe will be busy crunching footage.

Thanks Joe for all your hard work. As well as big thanks to the pilots throwing the sticks in the corners for the camera.
