So, you want a fast parkflyer!?
Forget boring scale details and shelf queen good looks this A-1 Skyraider is built for speed and all out fun! Dog fight with friends on 3S or use a 4S pack for heart pounding high speed passes, either way the Fun fighters have you covered. The combination of the light weight EPO airframe, a high power brushless motor and a simple aileron and elevator setup place these models amongst the most exhilarating park flyers to hit the market this year. Dont be left out of the fun!
This model comes plug and fly and only requires a few minutes of assembly time and flies like its on rails thanks to the one piece molding technique used in the construction. All you will require to have the A-1 Skyraider in the air is a 3~4S 850mAh 20C Lipoly battery and your own transmitter and receiver (Tx/Rx)

Fantastic plane. Super fun!
Easy to fly, just a bit fast! But it can be slowed down to a gentle landing on grass and, for the first flights... it's tough!
Everybody should have a Funfighter! I shall definitely get more!Comment No2. Here comes my correction. I took the plane to the field today. Despite the massive wing bent out of the box, I managed to re-straighten the wing with hot water.
Flew the bird today on the field with 4s. Absolutely stunning. Get the CG right and off you go.
Slow flying is very tame, but don,t get too slow. Accelerates massively without noteworthy roll or yaw.
Plane is asolutely kicking -again well done HK!
My club has now 8 of these, ..and increasing.....Received my A1 Skyraider today (yipee!) and opened the box. No damage but......!!
The main wing has a huge bend. Both wing sides mid wing to end are terribly bent. Also the ailerons are totally distorted.
The stabilizer and elevator are banana like, non useable.
Decided to bend in hot water. Stabilizer almost good now, but wing is still a catastrophy. Probably stored in heat and due to the packaging, the material distored.
HobbyKing, pease review the packaging or storrage, something went very wrong. Sorry.
I cannot get enough of this thing! firstly it looks fantastic,i didnt like the spinner so i took it off and it makes no difference at all but looks much much better without it,build time is less than an hour and is very simple,tried on 3 cell for maiden flight and launches at half throttle,no trimming required so opened her up and my goodness its fast! and also handles very well for a smal plane,so then tried 4 cell and it is just ballistic you only need quarter throttle to launch on 4s it has sooo much torque.
overall insane plane if you want speed this is the way to go,ull need a big field tho as it gets away from you FAST!
defiantly one that'll make you giggle to yourself.mon skyraider vol super bien je vol avec des 4s 850mah nano-tech
et jai reussi a voler a 100 mph cest trippantI own two other fun fighters, F4F hellcat (my favorite by far, amazing flying characteristics) and BF 109 Fun Fighter (pretty good)
This one came with warped right aileron and warped elevator.
Tried to steam straight but does not fly at all, flips upside down. Customer service won't replace it, after I spent three months going back and forth with them, posted videos, photos, they just won't do anything, but everyone knows that...
Get the F4F Hellcat instead of that one, it also has the highest rating (5 stars)I've had this plane for some time now and even after a few glitches it has held up really well for such a small aircraft. Performance is good regardless if you run 2s, 3s, or 4s and no matter how much wind you are up against. NO complaints here!

Also get another esc. Mine lasted 2 flights. gets real hot on 4s. Which it is supposed to handle. Comes with its very own warped stabiliser wing. Had to steam it straight. Spar in main wing doesnt go all the way across from wing to wing. My left wing snapped off, on 5th flight at the fuselage. Not sure why as I wasnt even pulling up very hard. Im pretty annoyed with this. I have lots of other high speed models with no issues like that..
