The Le Petit is a beautifully made model that conjures up memories of early aeromodelling days. A classic bi-plane design the Le Petit is a pre-covered balsa frame model that goes together in an evening and flies beautifully.
As a bi-plane, it has a low wing loading and as a result this is a real slow flyer in the air. That said if you want a little more excitement, the top wing can be removed and she can be flown as a low wing monoplane instead!
At 810mm wingspan and 600g the Le Petit is ideal for park flying or for lazy flying days at your club, where she is sure to turn a few heads.

I received my model yesterday, very well packaged and free from any damage. Assembly is a breeze, the instruction sheet being clear and concise. Anybody with half a brain will have no problems with assembly, which probably took me no more than an hour. The model balances perfectly with a 3s 1300 pack. I carried out the maiden flight this evening, what can I say. She fly's like a dream. She will do everything you want with the exception of prolonged vertical flight, she just hasn't got the power for that but then again I strongly suspect that wasn't in the design brief. I have to say that I'm very pleased with this little model, she looks the part (cute) in the air and has some presence despite her diminutive size. Keep producing models like this please Hobbyking, she's an absolute delight. Full marks, she's lovely.
