This is how they are as standard.
Wings slide together on joiner tube, then plastic top panel joiner holds wings together,
and bolts then hold whole assembly down.
I guess most who make one-piece wing is for convenience, just slam the wing on, or leave model in one piece.
(If your mode of transport permits)
I'm in same boat as you, small car (unless I take the '28 Dodge!) and dog with me. Not good having assembled models
in car if dog sees a kangaroo and tries to give chase from inside car!!
cheers

Well the HK trainstar will be my friends first plane. From reading through the thread i see that people are using 3000mah 30-40C packs. Wouldn't make the plane fly heavy at all? My friend will be running Zippy Compact 2200mah 60C packs and I'm wondering weather or not i shout use some of my 3000s for the maiden flight. Are you using 3000s cause you feel that you don't get enough flight time?. From the videos that I have seen online it is a very good flying plane.

Never enough time...

I'm a cheapskate, and have been using an 1800mah 30c, which flies well but (haven't timed them really) I'd guess 8-10 min? She's so light with that battery you can float around longer if you want. I never do. Ha! Also soldered up a parallel connector for two 1000mah batteries strapped together. Not quite as much power - probably amped out - and slightly heavier. Flies, but not as "fun" (a.k.a. you can just power yourself out of trouble), and I try to stay off the throttle more. I've been swinging a 12x6 prop.
Hmm... Maybe heavier and faster is better?

I didn't do the paint job. My dad Cubcrazy did the paint job curtain that the tires are from the Eflite Timber 1.5m. I have thought about doing the flap mod to it however, this is my friends first plane and I don't want him to be using the flaps. I really like this plane and I'm 100% sure that my friend will feel confident flying it too.

HK Tainstar - replacement parts


Hi folks

The Trainstar is my first plane, flies very well and am happy with it. Unfortunately had a bit of a mishap and smashed the vertical stabiliser, parts were missing so I was unable to glue together. I also need a main wing, horizontal stabiliser and the fuselage push-rods

Any one any idea where I would get spares ? I tried Volantex EU, and they are indicating that the model is obsolete.

I purchased one of these and love it. Just got the flaps funtional this week. Currently its the only plane I fly without SAFE, and its a great trainer. Not very aerobatic though. It will do a big loop, but it does not like to fly inverted
