About this model aircraft Part of a range that features realistic appearance and excellent flying qualities together with simple construction. An ideal introduction to the world of rubber powered balsa wood kits. Power is provided by rubber strip motor that is wound up before flight. Free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".
