Skylark L-9 Rubber Powered Freeflight Model 2 in 1 Monoplane or Bi-plane
The Freeflight series are just massive fun for all ages, they are ultra fast and simple to assemble as you would expect and quality is top notch, unlike the kind of kits you may have played with as a kid, these brilliant models utilize modern manufacturing techniques making them very durable, not to mention excellent performers.
The Skylark is a brilliant retro model that can be flown either as a mono-plane or a bi-plane, construction is very simliar to those models you probably flew as a kid and is very slightly more involved perhaps than some of the others in the range in terms of assembly but at the same time, a little more satisfying and still suitable for youngsters. The L-9 features control surface tabs for adjustment and this of course is the real fun of Freeflight, trimming the model to achieve circuits and maybe even a half decent landing when you get it really sussed! In addition, the wing position of the skylark can also be adjusted, shifting Centre of Gravity forwards and backwards, certainly adding to it's adjustability, fun and possibly even educational value. Now, if you are thinking you might get tired of winding up the rubber band with your chubby digits, never fear, we even have a battery powered winder with a built in counter (see related products) so no excuses!
Brilliant cheap fun for both adults and kids, the Freeflight series is a great way to have fun with friends and family in the local park, at picnics or even at your airfield!

If you dont have all the necessary electronics you need -to build it as rc- use you money to buy something like this http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__18872__Ho bbyking_Micro_J3_Cub_450mm_w_TX_Lipo_Prop_RTF_.html . If you have them, use them for something else. I think this project is costly waste of time.

I took the 1,7g servos, not linear. A brushed motor from a jamara micro heli with the hk 3A bec and a parkflyer screw and 180mAh lipo from the same heli. It's flying but the power is too weak and the engine is getting hot. Will try to get out the data from the screw, maybe it's wrong.
Yes everyone, I am currently converting this model to RC. AUW put together as a rubber band flyer, it is 46g. I plan on using 1 cell lipo, 4ch spektrum receiver SKU: R415, esc SKU: HK-XP3A, and 2 Hobbyking ultra micro receivers SKU: HK-5320. I am unsure what motor to use. I tried the 2 gram brushless but it got too hot and burned up on me. This model is a breeze to convert. a dab of hot glue to hold your electronics, a dab of CA to hold the wings tight and t bit of scotch tape for hinges. Any suggestions for motor?
Tambien compre un Espirutu de San Luis y los dos estan muy bien, son divertidos para volar con los mas pequeños y la verdad que lo hacen bastante bien, estan muy bien acabados y vienen en su cajita muy bien presentados, con las instrucciones muy faciles de seguir. Son un producto recomendable
