So I've had the time of my life with this plane! It was my first successful plane and it is finally being decommissioned because the booms broke. Great airplane! I will post the damage soon, but these things are resilient and don't stop flying till they are really broken...REALLY BROKEN!!!! Thank you +Lucas Weakley for this plane and the damage pics will be after

Maiden didn't go well but I got it ready for tomorrow. Tip: someone else should throw your plane because you just can get away alone.

 Electro flight  in a simple and cheap way. The motor power is feeded via the control lines and it start's with a microswitch on the handle.
Any battery from 12V-7Ah will do. A perfect model for beginners.

A friend of mine used to take the leads cut off from resisters to make model cars. This is an art.

I've been busy trying to fly after I got the parts for my christmas, and I have been having an issue. I have been unable to throw my airplane. Every time I throw it it crashes, but I did fly and I made a new plane to try again. I am ready to buy this to help

The original Spark Core was a Kickstarter hit but it had a fatal flaw: you had to be a total electronics nerd to figure it out. Now, however, you can be less..
