We wanted to keep it simple for beginners to hotliners. Future versions may come with flaps pending user demand.

For colours, we only have one standard colour.

For sale, do keep a look out on our website, we will be launching another promo soon.
Thank you for the details!

Nice to see a composite high performance model (even if only an entry level one) instead of the regular foam junk in the RCgroups reviews section.


Nice work to the reviewer and to APAC (who have awesome customer service FYI )


The price point of the PNP setup is very sharp IMHO, its possible to spend a hell of a lot more.....

I've never flown a Hotliner but there is much bashing about not being able to slow it down with out the flaps or crow mixing etc, etc.....

Can you not side slip these planes? It has a rudder.... Did yall miss that day in flight school? I practice it every time I fly my junk.

Another fine review by the WebDr

There is no need for a rudder, so most of them do not have one.
Turns are strictly bank and yank.
Bank with the ailerons, and yank with the elevator.

Spoilerons do work, they just require a different type of finesse.

It actually looks like a fun plane... and with everything pre installed, it does seem like a fairly good deal.

You wouldn't have it without flaps I wouldn't have any of them without a rudder.

Maybe so but they say express shipping only and at $156 for shipping alone it is a deal breaker!

TBS Crossfire or DragonLink?
$156 for shipping to the USA?

Hello,

for the eagle 5, its a one piece wing 1.7m. so the box is oversize we cannot ship by regular Singapore post. Regular post (including Airparcel and EMS) only takes up to 1.5m long parcels. This is the same anywhere worldwide.

That was the best shipping quote we found. Even Fedex or DHL would have cost more as they go via volumetric weight.

To save on shipping, best is get a buddy or 2 to order together as an extra or 2 pieces will not cost much more in shipping than the first one. Email us for ordering more than 1 piece to save on shipping.

Regards,

?
so you want us to buy "two" planes to save on shipping?

Its black friday coming up, do you have special rates on shipping?
(minus $156 on shipping?)....

Just askin' buddy

Just a quick question, needless to say I ordered one yesterday, I have noticed a little bulge on the righthand side on the fuse under the vertical stabiliser. What's that for?
Does it mean it could be converted for rudder control? To me it looks like the place where rdder push rod comes out.
