The Ryan STA is an icon of the golden age of aviation, quickly replacing the attractive but under-powered Ryan ST (Sports Trainer), the STA (Sport Trainer Aerobatic) won the 1937 International Aerobatic Championship, leading to immediate interest from the US military, if you are lucky, you can still see one of these fantastic looking aircraft doing the air show circuits.
On the other hand, you could own and fly your own! We loved the Ryan STA Plug n Fly so much when testing that it became a firm favorite with all the team. Made from tough, we have really put this model through its paces and it is still going strong! Scale detail is impressive for a foam model, the huge wheel pants, rigging wire, panel lines and wing struts give an impression of a much larger model, both in the air and on the ground.
There is plenty of power from the pre-fitted motor for classic aerobatics like stall turns & barrel rolls, yet the generous STA wing area makes for a superbly balanced model that is just as happy flying at scale speed. Likewise, the pre-fitted servo/control surface combination is perfect, the result is one of the smoothestmodels you are ever likely to fly.

C'est un bon appareil, mais il faut dj avoir un certains niveau de pilotage sans pour autant tre expert. L'avantage c'est qu'il n'y a rien de coll, tout est viss donc facile dmonter et transporter si besoin dans sa boite d'origine. Aussi il est trs rsistant mais il faut sceller les fixations des haubans car ils peuvent se dtacher lors de figures ou d'atterrissages forcs ! j'ai tout simplement mis un point de colle thermo sur certaines fixations et sur d'autres j'ai pinc les petits crochets mtalliques. Bons vols tousPlane went together as I expected for a Hobby King kit. Would be much better it manual was as well done as the plane. The one fault I found was that the flap servos were not done properly. Both have to be installed in the same direction so the flaps do not act like ail. I installed a 1300 bat. and the cg worked out fine. Had 2 false start takeoffs but on third try I got it airborne. Did just a short flight to get the to see how it felt and check out the flaps, which I had set for just a short throw. Landed pretty good on a narrow street will add in a little more flap bed fore the next flight.I am being careful as I have not flown much in the past year. I replaced the flying wires with 24 ga bead wire.which I caonnected to the springs and streached the springs a bit so they ring a bit when you hit them. they will not fall off. Over all I am very happy with the Ryan.This is a great little plane. I received mine yesterday, built it in 30 minutes, swapped connectors and was ready to fly. I love the detail on this plane, although it comes pilotless. The rivets are raised and the tail, wings, and gear are Al stabilized with working springs and cables. All around a great plane.
Now on to the first flight. I first trimmed everything on the ground and plugged a 1500mha battery in place. When I began take off with my rates at full and expo off the plane was VERY pitchy and sensitive. I took the plane to 300-400 feet and trimmed very little. After a little elevator and aileron adjustment I was set. I flipped my expo to 40 and took my rates to 70 and she was set. I flew for about 7 minutes and brought her in. This plane needs most all of you attention but once level will stay there. She landed great and needed no additional attention for the second go around.
All in all I am super happy with this plane and I think it may be my new favorite little flyer...for now at least.Very good plane for 60 dollars (in sale) havent flown it yet but quality and finish seems nice.I receive this product but the manual isnt on the package!Good airplane for intermediate skilled flyers. A little heavy, but adding the flaps is easy and provides really good low speed characteristics. I leave them down most of the time. Performs well during all basic aerobatics Plenty of power with the stock motor. This is a tough little bird, mine having survived a midair with a much heavier aircraft with only minor damage. Ground handling is good but can be tippy in a crosswind. I removed the heavy nose weight and relocated the esc under the cowl, just behind the firewall, and moved the battery all the way forward for balance. Nice plane!I have flown my STA and can now give a rundown on it.
The plane flies really well - very stable and forgiving. At the same time, it will do all the standard aerobatics like loops, rolls and hammerheads. The only problems with the plane are......
a) the main undercarriage are rather close together (scale appearance) which makes the plane rather squirrely on take off and a bit hard to land. I will have to refine my techniques a bit.
b) the plance is a little slow. It needs to fly on about 4/4 to max power to stay in the air. I am not sure if this is an underpower or underpropeller situation.
All in all, I am very pleased with my Ryan. It is a cool scale model which looks great in the air and is very nice to fly.So far, my STA has arrived and I have looked it over but not actually built it. All the components are nicely detailed and appear to be made from a very high quality EPO. All the fittings (such as the wheel boots and the strut-wires) look cool. I intend to build this over the Xmas/New Year break. I will do a further review after I have flown it.Very beautiful model aircraft and upgraded scaile items but flying really bad and not relaxed, you have to fly it fast and not in the wind, a little wind blowing it out of controlthe plane is goodlooking , fly good and it's easy also for not so expert pilot , motor have enough power for normal flight but for acro flight is better to update
