Factor™ 30cc Almost Ready-to-Fly 30cc/EP 3D/Sport Plane with MonoKote covering

Wide performance range — from mild to wild!

Released in 2013, the original Factor 3D was a 38" span park flyer that gained quick popularity for its affordability and virtually unlimited performance envelope. Today's Factor 3D offers the same performance potential, along with the added stability and visibility that its 70" wingspan offers. Whether it's built around the economy of a 30cc gasoline engine or a brushless electric power plant, the Factor 30cc will excel at any type of flying, from casual sport flying to all-out 3D aerobatics.

  • Nearly unlimited flight envelope, for everyday sport flying to 3D.
  • Accepts popular sizes of gas engines or electric motor systems.
  • Prebuilt using high-strength wood, fiberglass, carbon-fiber and aluminum.

removable wing
The Factor 30cc's large, two-piece wing uses a lightweight carbon-fiber wing tube — making it easy to remove for transportation and storage.
gas/electric setup
The power-to-weight ratio is impressive with any gas or electric option in the recommended range. Parts for electric motor mounting are included.
removable hatch
This large, removable hatch offers fast access to the radio gear and fuel tank or LiPo batteries.
eye-catching trim scheme
