Default How's the Easy Star RTF?

Hi, I was thinking about getting a Easy Star. I just starting into the hobby. I'm thinking of getting the RTF version so I don't screw things up. How is it? How's the stock motor, esc, battery and the charger. Is it better to just get the kit and buy the stuff seperately? Should I just go into LiPo right away. If so, what stuff should I be getting. THanks

Great first plane and many experience flyers buy them as keep in the car planes because you can fly it as a parkflyer, an electric launched sailplane or a slope glider. It does it all!


Easy Star - RTF - $170 - Space CL1
Believe this goes easily back in the box to keep in the car
Super tough foam. Comes with 72 MHz radio in the US.
Good parkflyer and a good glider
Radio in RTF package can be used to fly other planes

The easystar flies best with 8 cells. a lot of the RTF kits only include a 6 cell pack.

Stockdaddy is right. The RTF comes with an 6 cell pack. It will fly the plane fine in under 5 mph winds, but it struggles with anything ore than that. 7 cells would be my recommended minimum pack and 8 cells is best.

YOu can go Lipoly, but the stock motor really doesn't like going to 11 volts.
