The HobbyKing Typhoon has been built exclusively for 3D. This balsa and plywood airfame arrives almost ready to fly with huge control surfaces and a light wing loading, the perfect recipe for some extreme aerobatics!
Upon opening the box you are greeted to a high level of fabrication. Just install hardware, electronics, and complete final assembly to be ready to fly. Experienced modelers can have the Typhoon ready to fly in an evening or two of work.
Control surfaces are hinged with CA style hinges. Wing mounted aileron servos and a tail mounted elevator servo keeps control rods short and precise, while the rudder servo is mounted up front with pull-pull cables running to the back, keeping extra weight out of the tail.
Aluminum landing gear and pre-painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants round out the Typhoon's comprehensive package. Just supply your choice of motor, battery and electronics, a few building adhesives, and you're set.
The very attractive HobbyKing Typhoon 3D offers superb performance for both the 3D pilot and the sport flyer. This is the perfect all round model for the intermediate to experienced pilot as it looks good, flys great, is practical and doesn't cost the earth, you couldn't ask for more!

Semplicemente perfetto! acquistato quando in promozione e' stata una piacevole sorpresa. Molto simile nelle dimensioni al Su-20 classe 30 della Sebart.
Costruzione ottima e copertura perfetta. in volo e' visibilissimo.
il mio l'ho motorizzato con un Turnigy 35-42/6 da 1000kv esc da 50A, elica APC 13x6,5. con una batteria 3s da 2200mha il modello e' perfettamente bilanciato.

Not sure I would have gotten it if I had to add $70 in shipping and custom fees, so thanks HK. It's pretty nice! Needs quite a bit of work, tighten up the covering job, some glue joints need attention, locating holes for servos and pushrods. Cowling paint job is a bit sloppy; will need cooling holes cut into it. The tail surfaces will need reinforcement they're way too thin and flimsy to stand up to violent 3D maneuvers (I will add a carbon spar). Nice touch, though, all the control surfaces are pre-hinged, just glue it together. Manual is poor but anyone who assembled a plane before will do just fine. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.
