  Slinger

Wing it — for fast, easy fun!

Start assembly after lunch — fly it for hours before supper!

Slinger

Every ARF should be this easy to enjoy! The only things required to make the Slinger ARF flight-ready are 6-minute epoxy and 30 minutes of easy assembly. All-foam parts make it a snap to assemble and tough to damage — electric power makes it great for quick, "grab n' go" flying. A Speed 400 motor and prop provide the power for astonishing stunts at a wide range of speeds. Rock-solid stability and B2 bomber looks provides pilots with the inspiration — and confidence — to try almost anything!

  • Assembles in a half-hour — no building or painting required.
  • Rugged and resilient expanded foam parts offer outstanding resistance to rips, bends and breaks.
  • Easy to transport. Spans just under four feet and has no landing gear to bend or break.
  • Goes aloft with a hand launch and skids to a landing on its belly.
  • Included winglets attach with epoxy and stabilize flight throughout the entire performance envelope.
  • Precision-formed cockpit and simulated engine nacelles duplicate the looks of the mighty B2 bomber.
  • Center section offers ample room for all on-board gear — cockpit covers and protects gear, yet allows quick, easy access for pack changes or maintenance.

Slinger parts
All it takes to make the Slinger ARF flight-ready is epoxy and a little time! Formed plastic parts, factory-applied heat shrink film and all necessary hardware are supplied, making it easy to get airborne fast.
Slinger wings
The wing halves are molded from strong, expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, and feature a leading edge made from an even stronger, more durable expanded polypropylene (EPP). A factory-assembled film covering gives them bold, colorful looks — heavy-duty joiner rods transform them into a huge, virtually indestructible lifting surface!

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.
