If you're looking for a fast, fun, aerobatic sport model that can be flown just about anywhere, the Super Kinetic is what you're after! From high speed aerobatics including pylon style "bank and yank" flying to off-power gliding, the Super Kinetic handles it all with ease. It's a truly versatile model that is a blast to fly.
Constructed from ultra durable EPO foam and featuring carbon fiber reinforcement in all the right places, the Super Kinetic airframe is strong and responsive. Both the ailerons and rudder feature ball-linked pushrods providing slop-free control and easy adjustment, while the all-moving tail plane gives the model superb elevator response and really lets you dig in for high speed "bank and yank" turns. You can roll this model on its side and pull a 180 degree turn at full power without issue!
Although it's capable of aerobatics and high speed flight, the Super Kinetic is perfectly happy gliding as well thanks to the pre-installed folding prop. With the ESC brake turned on, the prop will fold when the throttle is off allowing the Super Kinetic to penetrate with very little drag.
Building the Super Kinetic couldn't be easier as there is no gluing required. The main wing simply latches in place while the elevator halves snap on securely to the elevator control rod. The ball-linked pushrods come included as well. You will simply need to install your own radio system, servos, motor and ESC to be ready to fly!

Beware this is not a glider ! It needs always to have speed, stall rate is high.
Frrewind spirit has better flight capabilities.Amazing plane and first glider for me. The foam is identical to the glossy EPO of the EFX which is incredibly resilient. Had no plans to use the stock motor combo so I threw in a NTM 2826 1350kv and a 30A Plush ESC. Virtually unlimited vertical, she goes straight up and then some. Stayed with 3s as there isn't much room in the battery compartment for anything bigger than a 3s 30C 1300mah, at least that's the biggest I have fit but I usually use high C 3s 850mAh and 3s 1000mah which give solid 6-7 minute flights with varied throttle staying well within 80pcnt. This setup with the stock prop pulls about 27A static WOT which is definitely pushing the motor but this is a glider... and it does glide very well so long as you properly balance her. I have at least 175g more AUW then what's listed in the specs and never one problem with the way she glides so disregard what the last reviewer said... any plane will tip stall depending upon it's attitude and the pilot.
I also used all 9g MG digi servos which required quite a bit of foam carving/sculpting but in the end worth it. The huge vertical stab really keeps this thing in the direction you put it in with only a smidge of oscillation if it's windy. This is an awesome aircraft and if I ever lose her I'll be getting another.
-tayzereally nice plane very agile .but little a underpowered.
I run a dys 2204 2400kv motor and a 6x6 prop 3s 850mah 3s nanotech.
now its fun to fly.run this as a fpv plane and am totally happy about it.Glider it is not. If you cut back the throttle on this garbage it will tip stall and crash, breaking your motor mount and tail off. I got my whole 30 seconds of flight out of it before it broke. Took off to 100 feet, cut throttle, tip stalled, and spiraled to the ground! Yes the C.G. was right, its just plain bad design of this plane.Biggest Bang for your buck I know I've got people to order this every time I fly mine. People are empressed at the way it flys.Wow, this is the absolute most terrible aircraft imaginable, I am not a noob, I fly daily, scratch build, helis, and multi rotors. Love gliders, 3D birds, scale, and all types of great planes, this however is the worst decision I have made since marrying my last wife, no joke. I am so flipping pissed of that I paid for this pile of crap. I honestly feel that this was a prototype, that nobody tested, and when the big dogs asked for the planes for retail, they accidently picked up this one as the last. DO NOT BELIEVE THE ADVERTISEMENT VIDEO!!!!! This is refered to as a glider, but this will not glide by any means, if you drop your throttle down below 50pcnt you'll experience aan instant tipstall, that will more than likely spiral uncontrollably to it's demise, the CG recommended is horribly wrong, the suggested motor is not even close to what it should be, and if you want to be put into a crappy mood, then buy this plane, but your ex wife will be able to bring the same effect for much cheaper. I gave it 1 star because 0 wasnt an option. I wrote this to warn would be buyers to not waste your time or money. YOUVE BEEN WARNED. ####11111111 most horrible plane of history of everything.le colis arriver dformer aile plier j'ai vraiment pas de chance avec vous sur le kineticSuper Kinetic Aerobatic Sport Glider Airplane EPO 815mm (ARF). Good quality ARF kit, arrived in perfect condition. Easy to assemble and came with all hardware required. Swapped all the electrics from my first crashed SK into this ARF kit and I'm a happy flier again. Thanks HobbyKing.
