Now they just released my favorite, the DIIV. I have to stay away from the HS, as I like both of these planes.

The SE5a is being sold by Tower Hobbies for $89.99 currently and is expected to be back in stock "Early December."
I liked mine so much I bought a second one for use in a short movie we plan to make. I was buying $65.00 worth of stuff I needed from Tower and adding the plane brought me over $150.00 so I got a nice discount and free shipping at that time so the 2nd plane only cost me out of pocket about $62.00. The Rimfire motor was just under $45.00 and it works great in the plane.

what glue?


hi everyone i just got this plane for christmas! I was wondering if i could use 5 min epoxy instead of CA glue. I am not sure if it will freeze up the hinges to the alerions or what. Or should i just go ahead and buy CA glue?
thanks michael

CA is probably best, but I've read that some people have good luck with plain old white glue or PVA canopy glue on small CA hinges. It sure would be easier to clean up any squeeze out. One drawback to CA on CA hinges is that it makes the point where they bend stiff and brittle.

I've never tried it myself, but it sounds like it should work. We're not talking about a lot of strength needed to hold the hinges in.

Its a good honest airplane. I had no problems on the maiden flight. Keep it on low rates for the first flight just to get used to it. Keep a little power on for landing so it doesn't flip over. The Se5 is my favorite electric plane now because it flys so good & looks so good doing it.

I'm just finishing up mine. How did you connect the top and bottom ailerons? It seems that the "L" wire goes in the top and the "z" wire in the bottom then use the heat shrink when they are correctly aligned. Sound right?

The wheels are three inches.

The covering is not Monocoat but the closest covering you can buy is Monocoat. Olive and Creme are the colors for the SE5a and Missle Red, black and white for the Fokker D VII.
