Recreate history -- with an exceptional all-wood ARF.
Your next trip to the park or field can be more than just flying fun -- you can give chase to the Red Baron's Flying Circus! ElectriFly's prebuilt, all-wood model of the S.E. 5a comes ready to take advantage of the latest breakthroughs in electric power for long flight times and dogfight-winning maneuverability.
Performs realistic WWI fighter aerobatics -- spins, sharp loops, Immelmanns and more.
Assembles quickly from prebuilt structures of laser-cut, film-covered balsa/ply.
Includes easy-to-install cabanes, struts and molded details for vintage warbird looks.
You don't find many park flyer-size wood electric ARF models of WWI aircraft -- and none can match the design expertise that gives ElectriFly's lightweight, built-up balsa/ply S.E. 5a its outstanding flight performance.
An outrunner brushless motor gives this model a great power-to-weight ratio and long flight times. The ElectriFly RimFire 28-30-950 motor (GPMG4560) was found to be ideal for the S.E. 5a.
With the S.E. 5a, you get a complete package of well-made hardware that's specifically designed for light weight and precise control response.
"Our S.E. 5a combines traditional wood construction with a design that's optimized for brushless motor power. It's simple to build, easy to repair, and a timeless performer."

Note: Some models require a 3-channel radio system, but a 4-channel will also work and it's beneficial because the modeler can use it in a wider range of applications with larger aircraft in the future. It depends on whether the modeler plans on using their radio for different uses other than just this airplane. Also please note that some radios come with receiver, crystal and/or servos.
