Avistar 30cc
This giant keeps growing with you.

Add the Avistar 30cc/EP to your hangar today for giant-scale sport training — and it will continue giving you new opportunities to try optional flaps, floats, and even sailplane towing. Easy to fly for less experienced pilots, yet with the power and maneuverability to satisfy seasoned fliers, it's the perfect introduction to gasoline engines or large electric power.

  • Top-quality balsa/ply construction for strength and durability
  • Two-piece wing with pre-hinged control surfaces
  • Aerobatic but forgiving for new sport fliers

colorful factory applied trim scheme
The Avistar 30cc/EP’s realistic looks are highlighted by a fiberglass cowl and wheel pants; clear side windows and windshield; and a removable, black ABS cockpit floor. Decals are included for adding an N-number, cargo door and landing lights to the preapplied covering scheme.
fuselage hatchmagnetic hatch
A spacious fuselage allows ample room for installation of your radio gear and power system components. A magnetically secured hatch makes LiPo changes fast and easy.
engine installed
With gasoline power, the Avistar 30cc/EP is economical to fly and needs minimal maintenance.
motor installed
With a brushless electric motor system, you’ll reduce noise and enjoy “instant” power — ideal if you plan to add floats and fly off water.
factory-hinged flaps
Factory-hinged flaps are built into the wing. They can easily be made operational by cutting the flaps free from the ailerons and adding the required servos. With functional flaps, your model will be capable of slower takeoff and “light as a feather” landing speeds.

Options available for the Avistar 30cc/EP.

taildragger & tricycle landing gear
The Avistar 30cc/EP includes taildragger landing gear. If you prefer a tricycle setup, use the optional Nose Gear Conversion Set (GPMA4568) and Nose Gear Wheel Pant (GPMA4561). With either configuration, ground handling is solid and predictable.
floats and rudders
For thrilling water takeoffs, replace the landing gear with Great Planes’ optional Float Kit (GPMA1676). Twin water rudders provide precise taxiing control and “kick up” when striking obstacles to avoid damage. Each float’s servo and linkages (required) mount internally for clean looks.
tow release
Help your sailplane flying buddies quickly reach altitude. Just add a servo and the optional, machined aluminum Sailplane Tow Release (GPMA4567).
