Welcome to full fuse EPP construction, increase flight envelope and added tumbles associated with larger balsa models all while having EPP Foam durability! All VA-models are crafted in Europe giving you ultra light weight high detailed EPP construction. The Decathlon gives realistic and dynamic flight characteristics that will appreciate it for beginners as well as advanced pilots.
Model based on the real Bellanca Decathlon airplane made in America in the 1970s which in combination of original template and VA-Models main design idea. Aircraft flight exposure is very balanced and plane behaves very neutral and harmless in all phases of flight.
Very easy to assembly, extremely tough, very stable even for beginner modelers. CNC / Laser manufactured for highest quality EPP foam air-frame best its class. Semi construction of fuse which speeds building, most of the air-frame is constructed from EPP with great attention to detailed graphics.

Kit Quality and flight envelope
i was looking for something scale that would fly gentle and still do 3-D OK. This is it! Couldn't be better! in my over 40 years of flying Very few have made it into my top 10 best flyers, This is right at the TOP of my list! i would not hesitate letting a beginner fly it. A hardened 3-D pilot will find it very satisfyingly. With out a doubt an Excellent flyer! And for kit quality it's Excellent! it's also Verry tough will stand up to some very hard landings and keep going! PS: Ordering another one (Different Color) And the CUB. Way to go Twisted You guy have a winner!
