Sig Taylorcraft T-Clips 70

The "T-CLIPS" is no ordinary clipped wing Taylorcraft. Airshow pilot Erik Edgren refers to this as "Twistin It Old School". The SIG T-CLIPS 70 EG ARF is a sport scale version of Erik's striking red and black show stopper. Designed for a "60" size motor, the T-CLIPS 70 flies as good as it looks. Basic precision aerobatics are its specialty - inside and outside loops, slow rolls, point rolls, snap rolls, cuban eights, spins, and inverted flight are routine for this everyday sport aerobatic airplane. 70" span and 61 2 stroke of circa 82 4 Stroke.

Legacy Aviation (By Extreme Flight RC)

Legacy Aviation 84" Bushmaster - Yellow/Silver/Black

The Legacy Aviation 84" Turbo Bushmaster has already made a huge impression around the world. Light, gentle and extremely well mannered. Easy to fly for the average sport flyer, yet extremely capable of all manner of aerobatic flying and high lift/high drag flap induced antics! Reportedly the Bushmaster is the favorite model of Extreme Flight CEO Chris Hinson! Motor - 120 electric. Wood construction. Carbon wing tube. Carbon landing gear. The Legacy Aviation is one of the best and most exciting ARF's we have seen! Video

Black Horse Models

Blackhorse 30/35cc Wilga

This complex shape model is built with such accuracy and detail it is truly unique! Fully slatted leading edges to the wing and Fowler type flaps for amazing STOL performance.

You can access the entire internal compartment via scale side windows that open in the correct sense. Flight characteristics are predictable and the speed envelope is wide. 88" span and suitable for 30/35cc engines.

Black Horse Ryan STA

Yes, the photo to the left & below left is Firebrand's Blackhorse Models demo! Span 92". Beautiful pinned control surfaces. Described by Blackhorse as 120 size. We fitted a DLE30 in our demo. After test flights our conclusion is the Ryan will fly in a scale like manner with a good 20cc motor...the DLE30 leaves power to burn! The Ryan has been one of our our most popular ARF's, and its not hard to see why! Click here for the review in Model Flying World. Video
