The 34" EPP Step-One top wing trainer is crafted out of EPP that is extremely easy to assembly as well as very durable which is needed or beginners learning to fly.  Being created as a Backyard/ParkFlyer, designer Jan Sedlacek specifically aimed to help new RC pilots start this amazing hobby.  While the Step-one was created for beginners it doesn't stops there, experienced pilots will enjoy the smooth flight and ability to fly longer for soaring as well as FPV use.   FPV canopy and gear sold separately.
With a unique fuse design and removable wing for easy transport as well as manufactured with EPP foam, the Step One is resistant and almost unbreakable.  Constructing is very simple so that even an inexperienced modeler can built the model correctly and without complications.   In flight feel with the Step One is very forgiving and not difficult for beginners to the point they do not need a buddy box. With motor and rudder control alone creates a sable yet versatile flight envelope.   

Easily removable wing makes transporting the plane no problem and so you can take it with you even on vacation.  The Step-One is supplied with the landing gear, so you can practice take-offs and landings on the ground.  Due to the large wheels the Step-One can handle even start from mowing grass.  Landing gear can also be removed to increase flight performance for longer flight time.   You can even soar with the eagles with the Step-One, we have seen 30+ mins of run time catching air thermals with a standard 2s 450mah with ease.     Enjoy flying with the new Step-One!

    Great Plane

    WOW is the best way to describe this plane. I had been trying to learn how to fly for a year when someone suggested this plane. I had invested over $1000 in all the supposedly the best trainers and had no luck. I was about to give up and said why not. I built the plane over about a week (took my time).Went to the club field and had one of the senior members trim it for me It was 99% trimmed as built. We setup a buddy box and the rest is history. On the third flite I was able to take off fly and land. Now this 71 yr.old man can fly with the rest. I can not recommend this plane enough, if I could I would give it 10 stars.

    Great Starter Park Flyer

    Maiden flight from a hand launch in light air went super; responsive but stable. Glides well with a easy landing on grass without the wheels. My first flight without a stability receiver. But I did cut back the control surfaces to 40% in the Tx for this first flight. The 2S 450 battery I used was lighter than the 600 so I safety pinned a lead fishing weight to the nose. Build doc well presented, this can be a first build if you have some input on the reasoning for each step and some craft skills. Buy the power kit and a battery also. Getting to the first flight takes your own receiver and Tx plus the skills to program the same. I spent 4 months in lockdown learning that part of this wonderful hobby.
