This large size pattern plane is made from EPO foam and has a winspan of 1.38m!The Rainbow takes around 2hrs to complete and is easy to assemble and repair thanks to it's simple design and strong EPO construction.
A very nicely scaled and finished R/C model; main wings are reinforced with alloy tube during mould injection for a strong slop-free fit, the landing gear is strong yet light, also servo operated retractable landing gear can be installed, battery access is very easy, tail section is light and provides plenty of control as do the full size ailerons.
This is a true pattern style sport EPO foamie with a solid design that can still handle small crashes without breaking.All hardware required is included.

ottimo questo aereo!!!! ben fatto anche se io qualche modifica l'ho fatta: ho cambiato il carrello e tutte le viti. consigliato!!! veramente bello e ben fattoAfter 8 months on backorder (eurowarehouse) i bought it in China. Same week it was in stock in Germany, so now i have two... just in case something goes wrong ;-). Quality is outstanding. It's a smooth very strong reinforced plane. Even better then premium brands costing at least twice as much. Takes a lot of building time and experience to build. But man, what a good looking / big bird considering the money. I will fly it initially with a powerfull 800kv outrunner on 4s 5000 40c, 80A esc with 12x10 prop. I expect it to fly as an Accipiter. Update as soon as it is airborn.
Come on HK. This item is out of stock for over 7 months!!
Policy says "out of stock items will be in stock in 3-4 weeks". Come on HYK i want to fly this beauty!!I received the fuselage broken
I made a claim and they told me that they send a new one
The order was on october 2010, and at the moment (september 2011) they don't do that
I sended too many email without any response
I think it's too seriosless from themHier mein Flugvideo, schnes Modell zu einem SUPER Preis
"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJEEjKFIm4U"Super Modell. Ich fliege es mit einem 60 amp Turnigy Regler, einem 5Zellen Akku von Zippy, einem Prop 12X6 und mit einem Turnigy-Motor (TR 35-48-C 800kv Brushless Outrunner Eq: AXi 2826).
Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Ergebnis. Ein super Preis-Leistungsverhltnis. siehe auch unter http://www.youtube.com/user/renkhy?feature=mhee#p/u/8/qJEEjKFIm4U
Good build, had to reinforce a few problem areas
If using retracts Used HKD-514 heavier one for max landing weight =need to add some carbon into wings to support the retracts from pulling out,
Note, It will nose over on landing = so are not really a success, wheels need to be furthur forward
Main undercarrige need to reinforce wire wheel landing gear is very weak on grass,
Tail wheel tears off, need to upgrade mount, rudder horn mount pulls out of foam, need to reinforce
Components used in the build
motor used SK 42-50
ESC turnigy plush 80A
used 5000Mah 6 Cell which I have on hand for other models
Prop, Master Airscrew Electric 12X8 really suits this motor
Servos used Metal Geared MG-16 Hextronic
For maiden flight used used Aileron 60pcnt Rates 20pcntExpo
Elevator 50pcnt 20pcnt Expo
Rudder Full Rates 10pcnt Expo
Will fly very fast with no sign of droping a wing, floats well, knife edges are good, will harrier and torq roll in the verticle
A very predictable plane with no problems in high wind with good penetration
Flew very well in 3G is typical of a pattern flying plane
Very impressed, highly recomended.avion recu aujourd'hui aspet du colis ok mais a l'ouverture aile abimee et fuselage casser a la derive faute a un embalage trop faible demarche en cour pour echange ou remboursementAnyone fitted the retracts to this model? Which did you choose, and does the kit come with the fitting hardware? I fly off pretty rough grass, so the opsion of belly landing would be usefull.If you want a pattern plane fomie in a big size and quality better then multiplex elopor, get this plane at once. Its very good looking, great fit and quality is exellent. It flyes right where you point it.
I waited a long time on this plane since they where on backorder for nearly 2 month. But it was worth waiting for, i use the axi 2820/10 60 amp esc and use 4 cell turningy lipos and it can do all pattern manouvers in the book with plenty of powers to spare...Love this plane..!
