Tech Notice Giant Super Sportster Super Sportster ARF
Livin' large, the easy way!

The Giant Super Sportster is the perfect marriage: spectacular, IMAA-legal dimensions matched to superbly smooth and easy Super Sportster handling. It's a brand-new way to enjoy a classic and an easy introduction to the fun of giant-scale flying.

  • Hand-crafted from sturdy ply and select balsa, yet ready for takeoff in just 20-24 hours.
  • Features the trademark Super Sportster "starburst" trim scheme, done in the rich, glowing colors of Top Flite MonoKote film.
  • Fiberglass cowl and wheel pants are factory-formed, hand-painted and ready to be installed — and admired — almost immediately.
  • Perfect for hours of stress-free flight. Stable and predictable on takeoff and approach, and "flier-friendly" through rolls, stall turns, inverted flight and other sport aerobatics.
  • Servos for all control surfaces are mounted externally, for simple installation, easy adjustment and swift, precise response.
