The best darn RET foamy yet. The tagline given by the designer of the Nutball. Designed and made famous by GoldGuy on RCgroups, the Nutball has gained a cult following as an open source Rudder, Elevator, Throttle design, with many variations and modifications being seen over the years. Working with permission of the designer, HobbyKing brings you a full Nutball kit. The all EPP foam airframe is pre-cut and has an attractive multi-color scheme printed directly to the foam.
The low parts count and simplicity of the airframe is one of the reasons for the popularity of the Nutball. It'll fly slow, do loops, and rolls. With the included landing gear it is the ultimate touch and go machine for flight sessions in the park. Being all EPP it is also extremely durable which leads to a high fun factor. No worries of damage here.

This is one amazing and fun little plane, it is just so easy to build and fly. It is my my first plane that I did not crash in first 5 seconds. Just be careful because it is not meant for any kind of wind!This nutball is really a great plane,
I just started out with this hobby, and flew on a simulator beforehand, but seriously, this plane flies on rails, I can fly slow, fast with this plane, and this plane's controls like Rudder is really precise, and though it might not seem like a great nice look scale plane, its almost a perfect plane for beginners like me. Last but not least, this plane is made of EPP, which makes it survive all the nose dives, all types of crashes, including diving into a tree
This plane is really the best bang for the buck :DGood pkg all items good,went together well,used hot glue gun. Flight good,best prop was 3blade 5x3. I am flying in a small place and control is good if you connect rudder servo to aileron position on reciever. likes calm conditions, hovers,drags tail, can land from houver in cardboard box. Shipped to me in 3 days. By the way I use 260mA batteries and get long flight times..I'm 74 yr old and find this model verry amusing!! Good buy!!can someone confirm the cg is as stated in the manual 150-160 from the leading edge even with a 400 battery and rx up front I am way to tail heavy and it flies badly I have 4 other round planes and they fly great at approx. 24-25pcnt from leading edge to trailing edge.HK stock of 6x3 props would be appreciatedGuys this plane is a blast, I have flown it maybe 40times so far on the little turnigy nano tech 300mah 2s packs, still i am getting maybe over 5 or 7 mins of flight time if don't fly like a total goober. The only weak point on this plane is the props, if you land funny they bend and leave stress marks. But this is a much better value for money and fun compared to a horizon hobby nano qx that was $70 BNF, I have one, not so happy with it. still $71 shipped from hong kong air mail isn't too bad. Buy one you will love it!! The EPP makes for a very light and durable plane, this plane hovers really good, and takes abuse pretty good! it has some quirks to flying it, so this would be a good second plane. Still very easy to fly! I crashed twice straight into a hard driveway right onto the motor, the only thing it did aside from scaring me to death nearly was grind down the prop nut cone. Didn't even bend the motor shaft! Wow!! Really, I highly recommend this plane for anybody who has a sort of small backyard, I insist, I have had a total blast with my hobbyking nutball fun flyer PNF!GOSTEI MUITO! LEVE, FCIL DE MONTAR, VOA MUITO LENTO TIMO PARA VO INDOOR MATERIAL DE FCIL VISUALIZAO E DURVEL. VOEI TAMBM AO AR LIVRE COM VENTO FRACO PARA MODERADO, SEM NENHUM PROBLEMA! DIVERSO GARANTIDA!WOW! What a great fun flyer! This thing goes fast, it goes slow, it can do several tricks once you get your skill up too. Well worth the money, excellent for beginners or experienced flyers. Experienced flyers will find this to be great fun indoors. A real winner!This thing is just a heap of fun.
Easy to put together (and repair). Great as both a trainer (GOG forward) and yet fun for experienced flyers too. I have a very small park with lots of trees in it right next to my house. This is one thing I can fly there with ease and confidence. Makes dodging the trees a hoot rather than an effort :) Takes off in the width of a footpath (if you want), and lands on sixpence :)
Just do regard the instructions about not flying it in too much breeze.
