Now it's even easier to be a "perfect trainer" builder and pilot.

More R/C pilots have successfully learned to fly with a Perfect Trainer than any other kit. By applying recent engineering advances to these proven models, Great Planes has made them more durable, more stable, and even easier to build!

  • Proper amounts of wing dihedral and washout enable PTs to self-recover from control mishaps - new pilots worry less, learn faster.
  • Extensively photo-illustrated instruction manuals cover kit assembly PLUS building a workbench, choosing tools, preparing for flight...everything a new hobbyist needs to know.
  • Kits include all assembly hardware plus heavy duty landing gear and materials for a bolt-on or rubber band-attached wing.
  • Larger, extra-stable PT-40 MKII takes a .40 engine - a size the pilot could likely reuse in future models.
  • Ideal for small flying sites, PT-20 MKII also lowers startup costs by using an economical.20-size engine.
  • Innovative "interlocking I-beam" engineering simplifies wing construction and maximizes strength. The ribs plug securely into spars and webbing to maintain proper alignment.
  • PT wings are built with ailerons for full 4-channel control, but they can be locked in place for 3-channel operation. Leading and trailing edges come preshaped for easy assembly.
