Hobbyking ParkJet

The maneuverability of this plane is incredible, even though it only has 2 control surfaces and is only 3 channels it is super responsive and can do some incredibly fast rolls and loops.

It comes with a channel mixer if your radio doesn’t allow you to set up for elevons (combined elevators and ailerons) and a motor and esc all ready to go, just add a receiver (in this case a small Hobbyking DSM2 compatible parkflyer receiver) and a battery and your good to go.

The best thing about this plane is also that it’s extremely resilient and easy to fix, after the crash the wing broke off the motor mount broke off and all were fixed in a couple of hours with some 5 minute epoxy and was ready to go again the next day.

Lots of people are replacing the included esc and motor with more powerful versions for better performance and I will be doing the same thing shortly, cant wait for more speed.

This is a brilliant little plane and great to just have some fun with.
