Best Engine

The .40 LA engine is THE most popular engine for .40-size airplanes, and with good reason. It has a remote needle valve for convenient adjustments and increased pilot safety. Plus, it runs cool, holds settings securely, and delivers exceptional power.


The Avistar Select's semi-symmetrical airfoil offers more agility than a basic trainer's flat-bottom wing, but its high wing mounting maintains the predictable landing characteristics and in-flight stability of your trainer. The design lets you ease into new flying challenges with confidence, helping you learn faster.


No modeling

Requires only a household screwdriver and pliers!
