The Reaktor 3D EPP is a superb model for 3D aerobatic flying. Constructed of super durable EPP foam, this kit can handle just about anything you can throw at it.

Its large control surfaces offer extreme authority for 3D manuevers. It features an airfoiled wing with carbon fiber spars in-built making it extremely rigid.

Ailerons and elevator come pre-hinged which help keep assembly time to a minimum.

Why the cheapest shipping cost are 35 euro to Greece? for a plane under 1000gr weight. While other planes weight more than 1000gr and shiping cost are 25 euros. i don't understand that.

Did you order a battery? Order in the EU warehouse and the shipping and transport time will be lower.

ElectricAussie. Very interested in your Reaktorette - looks like great fun! Can you give some specifices on the alterations. I can see the trimming of the wings and elevater/rudder. But did you move wing back or cut some out between wing and rear and then reattach? I can also see you removed sides of fuse and trimmed down the top of fuse. Appreciate any comments.

Hi Stanley, There was no grand design plan involved in building the Reaktorette. I had the carcasses of 2 old Reaktors up on the shelf and just decided to butcher them into something smaller that would make use of the fuselage parts that weren't damaged. I cut the nose off of a fuselage and cut a new wing opening. I then cut the outer ends off of a wing to get it down to scale with the smaller fuselage. Used a straightedge along the horizontal stab surface to set the wing incidence. The rest was just making it up as I went along. I had a new C20 motor in the spares box and some small 2S lipos, so it fell together pretty quickly. Surprised it flew so well. I could fly it inside a shoebox if it were any smaller. Cheers, EA!

Thank you EA. Sorry it took so long for thanks, but got ill.

Anyone had problems with the aileron foam hinges, mine look just about non existent, new out box, very little foam holding them on, full of holes, it's like they removed to much foam and only just hanging on by paper thin foam or less. Anyone got any suggestions on how to fix this thanks
 ElectricAussie 4302 points
Hi Paul, There's pros and cons for the hinge design. The pros are mainly the lack of hinge gap (air leak between upper/lower surfaces) gives better flying characteristics. The cons .... you get about 10-12 flying sessions in before cracks/separations start appearing, usually at the outer ends where the ailerons take the most abuse from rough landings, tumbles, etc. I've built 5 Reaktors (wear out one every 6 months or so) and no longer wait for the hinge cracks to appear. I epoxy or CA 3 short strips (outer end, center, inner end) of tough cloth (fiberglass, nylon, etc.) across the hinge line on each wing half. Lasts the whole life of the plane and is still in place when it's time to bin the plane and build a new one. Cheers, EA!

Thanks electric as you said I might do it from the start put some hinges on

Blenderm tape works really well. Just a strip on top of the hinge. Alot of foamies use only blenderm tape.

A thin layer of "WELDER" glue over the hinge thin spots 1/2" wide will help it stay together.

Looks like they don't sell the D2822/14 motor here anymore. Any other recommendations for a motor? I hate it when they sell a plane and don't even offer a motor in the related items area.
 ElectricAussie 4302 points
Hi Wheelnut, By "don't sell here" do you mean the US or international warehouse? The D2822/14 is available in both (I just checked), but there's been some changes in the US and it's sold thru what is being called the US Western warehouse. Search PRODUCT ID: D2822-141450 and you'll find it. Cheers, EA!

I've run a E-Max 2822-1200kv for over a year. Works great. $8 at Value Hobby.

I have used the HK Donkey motor and 10 Amp ESC combo, 440g of thrust. The plane should be less than 340g with proper size LIPO battery. Check the FILES area for more info and ideas on upgrades. There is also a Thread on RCGroups**** under EPP Reaktor.

2 thumbs up!
Great flying little airplane. The thicker foam and carbon fiber keep the plane stiff enough not to twist the tail in mid-air as a lot of these little flat epp planes do. With a Turnigy AE-20 ESC, C20 2050kv motor, 9x6 EP prop, OrangeRC 6 chan reciever, 4 Hextronix HXT500 servos, a Nano-Tech 460ma battery and no landing gear mine is 300 grams and will hover at 1/2 throttle. I initially flew it with out the 'winglet' (yep, that's what they call it in the instructions) on the turtle deck and it flew very well, but wouldn't do an inverted flat spin. Adding the winglet made the plane pull one with ease, as well as knife edge effortlessly. The plane is very responsive to the control surfaces and a true joy to fly. Instructions were clear and build time was just over 4 hours. NOTE: The rudder and elevator use a string pull-pull setup, they send you some silky, lightweight cotton string. Frustrating to build and very cheesy. I used 2mm carbon fiber and some wire from the hobby shop to make push rods on mine. By placing the ESC all the way forward and looping the motor wires out of the way, I was able to slip the reciever into the pre-cut slot, place the battery into it's pre-cut slot, and have a perfect CG without the addition of any weight. Using the C20 and AE-20 ESC provides 6-8 min flight times with minimal heat buildup even in aggressive flying (Battery slightly warm but it's nested in the foam so that's not unexpected). The thick foam is very durable, I haven't crash tested min

This planes a 2cells li-po and you better use a 800mah battery, as for the motor the best one you could use is the HobbyKing 2612 Brushless Outrunner 1900KV(as suggested) and as for the ESC the TURNIGY Plush 10amp and 4 htx 500
it is my configuration and it is perfect :)

Fantastic plane!!! Just finished the build and will fly tomorrow if the wind cooperates. Overall, this has been the best quality foamie I've come across in terms of design, fit, and finish. Every part was straight and fit like a glove. I have several of the Red Eagle foam planes and none of them compare in terms of stiffness and straightness of the individual parts or finished plane. The only complaint I have is the way the landing gear is attached. Flimsy little ply plates came loose the first time I flexed the the landing gear. I replaced them with 25mm x 35mm ply plates epoxied on and the landing gear is plenty strong. The recommended motor (HK2612) has plenty of power with 3S batts. Using a Rhino 610mah 3S, the plane weighs exactly 300g and literally leaps vertically with this motor/battery combo on a 8x4 prop. I file a flight evaluation later. Thanks HK for another great plane! Cheers!

Okay, here's the flight report I promised. No wind and perfect flying conditions ... I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS PLANE!!! Trimmed out with just a few clicks of Elev/Aileron and flew like it was on rails. Very stiff with no noticeable flex at all. Hovers with almost no inputs, will turn 180 within a 1 metre space, flies same inverted as upright. Would do every 3D trick in the book if I knew how, yet it's just as happy to fly general pattern style. No tip stall at high or low speed. Landings can be as slow as you like, as it just settles down flat when air speed gets too low. Hand launches straight and true with no torque roll. When word gets out about what a bargain this plane is, HK won't be able to order enough stock. Cheers!

A quick final note on some minor tweaks to my Reaktor. The little winglet on top is flimsy and flutters at high speed, so I added a 100mm long piece of .5mmx3mm CF strip to the top. Very stiff now and seems to improve the handling, especially when inverted. I've been switching between 3S Rhino 610mah and 750mah batts to see which weight/CG works best. The 750mah battery gives nice long flight times and perfect CG balance. AUW is 315g, but the plane still floats down to a crawl without losing lift and the extra power means awesome 3D capability. Cheers!
