Looking for a small, fun, stable and durable plane? Look no further than the Firstar 200 motor glider. The Firstar is a great airplane for new and experienced pilots alike. Though very stable for new pilots, it performs loops, rolls, and inverted flight when pushed hard. Since the small 2208 4000kv motor just sips the power, long flight times can be expected. A low landing speed is great when learning to fly or if you are in smaller flying spaces. Since it is such a compact model, it is great for those quick trips to the local park, the ultimate leave it in the car model. The molded EPO foam airframe can handle less than perfect landings and keep coming back for more. Should you need parts, we also offer a full line of replacements.

 

Assembly is quick and easy with the all bolt together construction. The wing simply slips into place, needing just the control horns and pushrods to be connected. The horizontal stabilizer is held in place with a single bolt. This model can be ready to fly in under 15 minutes.

Features:
• Plug and Fly - Just add your battery, radio system and fly
• Ultra tough molded EPO foam airframe
• Simple bolt together construction, no glue required
• Stable flight performance
• Magnetically secured battery hatch
• Loops and rolls easily

I bought 3 of these little planes, one for me, one for my brother and a third for my brother in law. They are easy to assemble and fly really well! The only problem that we have had with our 3 planes is that we lost a prop when my daughter launched one of the planes rather hard which caused the battery cover to fly into the prop. I bought three 2mm prop adapters and cured that issue. I am surprised at how well these fly at a low speed. Here is a link to me and my brother in law flying ours on his property. https://youtu.be/ZDQe656ldrU

update on my review after 1 month I have crashed this thing a million times and still just a little mashed foam in the nose. Cracks seal with hot glue, bends straighten in boiling water. My prop did finally come off the shaft it was glued to, but this is a great thing! Fixed it with a 2mm collet style prop adapter and now I can run a new prop:: and wow what a difference a 4" 3blade 4045 prop does! Makes this thing climb almost vertically now and can get out of any trouble... also can fly in heavier winds with a better prop- up to 10mph before its too much really... Still REALLY REALLY like and appreciate this plane!

I have a dozen planes from HK and this is my new favorite! Super fast and easy to build, particularly easy for a beginner. I wish this was the first plane I ever got, it has printed instructions, quality screw together horns that are super easy to get to and adjust. After a day of crashing and flying (two of us bashed it today), it is in perfect shape ready to fly more. I highly recommend this plane it is as good as a ‘mini bixler’. The only drawback is the size makes it hard to see after you get it an intermediate distance, so your flying circuit is mostly medium park-sized. I can see the prop may be an issue but some glue or fiddling should fix it if it comes loose, although mine is still good after ripping it the first day. Cheers

Upgraded the motor and esc to take 3s. Here is the result:

Came in a lovely box with most things mounted already. Added a runcam micro swift and vtx and it flew perfectly out of the box. Didn't even need to trim it in. Unfortunately after only 2-3 minutes the prop came loose on the shaft, and given it is just a friction fit prop that ended the day.
Would definitely benefit from some sort of prop retention system, but for the money it's a pretty good bit of kit.

What a great wee plane , much better than my Bixler 3 , not to good in 10mph plus winds
Glue the tail and main wings in place for best flying/crashing, if you don’t the main wings get loose quickly, highly recommend

Only flew it about 4 times this weekend and it did well even though it was very windy. So when it calms down it should be great for what i bought it for which is proximity FPV flying

Well, this is my first review ever. I am an experienced builder with very limited flying experience (Don't ask the reasons).
The model flies very well, I would say Yes for a beginner for 2 reasons, 1) it is quite light so when it crashed it does not really gets damaged 2) It flies quite stable and can fly slow (I read a review saying it stalls if flying slow - well not my case)
Do not buy the 2S 500 battery, it can only balance CG with the 2S 800 or bigger battery (unless using FVP).
Motor: enough power (not sure if it can take from the ground)
other parts: OK (great horns and rods)
The stabilizer is at an angle with the wing... a few degrees
The rudder came a bit bent, If looked from the top I need left trim, If I look from below I need right trim, I am gonna chop it off and fly just with ailerons.
The wing can come a bit lose, I placed a rubber band that goes from the motor mount to the body of the plane and keeps the wing still.
I am happy with the bird because I can fly it anywhere (half a soccer field is enough)
The price I think is just right

I am a newbie at RC airplanes. The Firstar is my second plane, the first one being a very mild Eflite UMX Radian. The design of the plane and foam material were excellent. I put it together and installed a gyro stabilized received in it without trouble. It flew the first time without trim needed!
This is probably not the first RC plane for everyone. It has a high performance straight wing and it shows it while making turns. One small mistake like over pushing the control surfaces or dropping below the stall speed, it crashes. But it survives several crashes - noise down stall into the ground and into a tree. It is all good again with some glue.
There are two things to watch out for. When launching, use full throttle and point the nose up about 30 degrees so that the axis of the propeller is at least horizontal. If the plane is launched with nose level, the propeller drives the plane downwards before the wings provide lift from air speed. The result is the plane dropping and hitting the ground.
This plane can fly very slowly when going straight and level. But it stalls very easily in a turn in slow speed. The tell tale sign is it dropping 10 or 20 feet while making a sharp turn. It is about to stall. When it stalls it drops out of the sky in a turn. To avoid that keep the throttle at 50 to 60%. At this setting the plane will not lose any altitude in turns.
I flew this plane with stabilized and non-stabilized receivers. Even without stabilization it flew very well in strong and gusty winds. With stabilization one would not be able to tell how much wind is around, unless you feel and hear the wind yourself.
Flown to avoid stall this plane is about as fast as the sport planes. Once I got used to the speed it is predictable and easy to fly. This is my crash and learn plane. This is also my plane of choice when the wind is strong and gusty.

Good little airplane.Niece for somebody who wants to go from glider to a little more control movement,such as airlerons from three channel movement too 4 chanel movement
