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/

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.
