Radio Control Conversion
The Herr 100 Series models (kit numbers begin with HRR1) are all originally designed as free flight rubber power aircraft, and as such they fly beautifully. These were the first ever laser-cut model airplane kits on the market. Now in this day of miniature radio gear and brushless outrunner electric motors they are enjoying a new life as radio control subjects.

Many experienced modelers are having a great time converting these airplanes to R/C flying. The light structures and stable flight characteristics make these airplanes excellent subjects for R/C. Unfortunately, at this time none of these model kits include instructions for converting to R/C, however there are many excellent build threads in the online modeling forums. Search on your favorite forum for the airplane, and you will most likely find excellent help and instruction.
