It lays the groundwork for a lifetime of enjoyment.

The Alpha Trainer ARF comes out of the box 90% prebuilt and you can be out at the flying field in only a few, short evenings. The Alpha kit also includes large wheels to make ground handling easy, whether your flying field has a paved runway or grass.
Once airborne, you'll be treated to the Alpha's gentle self-righting flight characteristics that make it easy to master the basics as well as recover from "sticky" situations.
