Feel the need for speed? The Pistol will deliver! Capable of insane speeds with the right set up, the nicely finished little pylon racer is such an adrenaline rush!
This easy build kit features a full epoxy composite fuselage, wing and horizontal stablizer all finished in a high gloss, attractive paint scheme. A full hardware kit and alloy spinner are also included and once built up, this is a really nice looking model that is easy to see in the air. The model provides plenty of cooling air for the motor, ESC and Lipo with large cheek inlet's and of course a good size outlet.
All there is left to do of course is choose your power train and how nut's do you want the Pistol to be!? With a 3300kv Brushless inrunner fitted, the Pistol is breathakingly fast, even throttle off, this great looking little plane carries amazing speed and as it is a high quality epoxy construction, this quick little fella should look good for years to come, the Pistol is a must for speed freaks!

Der grste Mll den ich jemals gekauft habe, Tragflche verzogen wie ein Trkensebel,Querruderanlenkung lose nicht eingeklebt, Ober und Unterseite der Tragflche lst sich an einigen Stellen. Hhenruderauflage nicht Formgerecht und schief, Rumpf geht ansonsten einigermaen. Danke fr 70,00 Euro nie wieder.
S.R.no instructions crashed first flightbad, bad, bad, bad! stay away at all costs!. molding was good but that's it. poor paint, ailerons need to be reshaped, all holes are off center, balsa "hardwood" spar was crushed, attachment point on the wing was off center. i tried to to fix everything but just scraped it.Sehr schlechte Qualitt , Querruder muss ich rausschneiden und umbauen !
Motorbefestigung total schief eingeklebt !
Mein angelieferte Flugzeug wiegt schon ohne Batterien , Motor , ESC , Empfnger und
Servos 280 g !! Fr diese 94 US $ habe ich viel mehr erwartet. Eine Schande fr HOBY KING.
Sorry but I just can't recommend this plane. The quality of the molding is very hit and miss. I did get some hit but I also got significant miss. For $100 hobbyking have made us expect a lot of plane but this just isn't it. My aelorons were all off centre, it requires a very low profile servo and a high kv motor - both of which HK don't stock anyway. If you make do with what HK have, its hard to balance and requires much fiddling to make everything work. The plane won't take even a minor hit so unless you are really game buy somethong else...This dont flight, very bad ailerons, very dangerous. If you want a good plane buy original RIFLE from greatplanes. I got a rifle after try pistol. it is another thing flying a lotMy pistol epoxy arrived today, took a little over two weeks to arrive to the UK. Very well packaged and no damage. The glossy gelcoat finish is excellent on all components. The hardware included looks of high quality and the spinner is well balanced. Unlike the Great Planes Rifle, my wing is not foam filled but it does have a hardwood spar running almost the entire length of the wing mounted just behind the servo tray. The wing seems like it has much less flex than the GP model. On the downside, all of the hinges are very tight and almost impossible to move, I will wrap some 240 grit sandpaper around a razor saw and work at them until they move freely. Another gripe is that the horizontal stab is supposed to mount with two screws and there are two screw holes drilled through the stab itself but no mounting holes in the top of the vertical stab. I will have to drill them myself, not a big problem but it may be difficult to get the horizontal stab aligned correctly. Also some of the factory glue joins look a little questionable.
Overall very pleased with the purchase, 70 shipped from HK against 125 best price for the rifle in the UK. Bargain.
