Hobbyking Tuff Trainer EPP (PNF)

Hobbyking Tuff Trainer EPP (PNF)
Hobbyking Tuff Trainer EPP (PNF)

The Hobbyking Tuff Trainer is the ideal choice for the new RC pilot, a trainer needs to have certain qualities to be really good at the job it is intended for, so it is perhaps fortunate that supermodel good looks is not one of them, what it lacks in glamour, this model more than makes up for in performance, toughness, practicality & value for money.

The Tuff Trainer is exactly that, a combination of almost un-breakable EPP foam, band secured wing and carbon fibre spars means that, should the worse happen, this model will bounce and then bounce back for more. In the unlikely event that you do manage to break it, a little cyano glue and a few minutes patience will be all that's needed to have you grinning again.

The Hobbyking Tuff Trainer is Plug-and-Fly(PNF), so motor & ESC are pre-installed. Note that the prop mounts with a prop saver just in case you have a less than perfect landing. Good quality 8g servo's are pre-installed and quality hardware tops of the list of essential must have's that are included with this kit. A trainer should be easy to fly; the combination of high angle of dihedral and high lift thick section wing make the Hobbyking Tuff Trainer a very stable, forgiving flyer, with excellent slow fly capability that does not lack the single most important factor.............FUN!

Thank you, waterlogged. I see you are as helpful and as sweet as ever. Why don't you find something better to do?
 Karl 641 points
Waterlogged answered your question and was more or less correct. If you had searched in the propeller section of hardware and accessories you would have found those propellers almost immediately.

My initial thoughts on this were good, but have lowered slightly. I havnt like others had to replace any servos, but the rear pushrods were way out of line. The rubber bands holding the wing down seem to deform the rear of the wing and it needs reinforced. this might be reason its needs major trim adjustment on the ailerons, which in turn makes on turn nicely one way. My friend bought a yellow cub, and although $40 more, its a much much better plane/trainer I believe

Perfect plane for beginners! Just one little mod: separate two wing halves and glue it together again on a flat surface, to eliminate V-shape of wings and reinforce it with 1.8-2.5 mm solid carbon rod. It makes this plane more resistant to wind and much much more predictable. Recomended this mod for everyone, especially beginners!

Attn 2 HK. Wing reinforcements are too weak! It's good idea to change it to СF or just not to glue it in. And same about V-shape. It's much easier to glue wing halves as desired with no need to separate it first. Just pay a lil more attn to this plane. With minor mods, it's gonna be the world best EPP trainer for years to come.

I ordered this model to friends - decided to learn. :) Glued themselves, then the process stopped and "communicate" I had to. Arms: too thick and hard, apparently, so you have them and began to "crackle". Bowden filled the engine oil, but it did not solve the problem. Replaced regular traction on the "curtain" wire - steel servo rotate completely without stress. "Ambush" waited further, confirmed "diagnosis" nezapuska engine and complete silence when you start the engine, servo, too, began to behave strangely. Became a sort - disconnected the engine began to check the windings (the motor is connected to the controller connectors whip). Showed a "break". Heart beat erratically, settled down, got a spare 2205, it sounded - as expected, shows some resistance. Unsolder from the "staff" of the motor pin connector in order to rearrange them in 2205, for the insurance decided to check it with an ohmmeter - a miracle! - Winding resistance is normal! Solder a pin back to check - again "break"! It turned out that the cylindrical "contact" spring-plug's somehow not "kontachit" with the rest, in all my practice is seeing for the first time. "Disease" was cured by applying a drop of solder at the "base" connector so that the contact and the "base" were welded together at this point. After the engine has run resoldering without problems. Necessary to calibrate the "gas" do everything as usua

Very good Trainer. It's laborious to connect the battery because its so small to take it out with bare hands...
