The original, 31" span Great Planes Rifle scored big with pilots looking for fast, full-throttle fun…without needing expensive electronics and spending hours in the workshop prior to flight. This one-meter version offers a larger size for better handling and visibility, easier landings, improved gliding performance, and even faster speeds. It all adds up to a lot of adrenaline-pumping aircraft action!
Reaches 130+ mph (209 km/h) using the recommended "speed" power setup.
Optional "sport" setup reduces weight and power for regular sport flying and extended flight times, in a 90-100 mph (145-161 km/h) speed range.
Dual aileron servos simplify setup and increase precision – and allow the use of spoilerons with a computer radio for slower, shorter landing approaches.
Carbon-fiber wing spar adds rigidity for bone-chilling, high-G pylon turns.
Low parts count and prehinged control surfaces offer fast, easy assembly.
Connectorless linkages provide security and simplicity.
Includes machined aluminum spinner and complete hardware.
Bright, high-visibility trim scheme.
WARNING: The Rifle 1M requires advanced flying skills and is not suitable for beginning or intermediate pilots. In the Speed Configuration at sea level it reaches 130+ mph (209 km/h) speeds - or 90+ mph (145 km/h) in the Sport Configuration - and should be flown only at the flying sites of AMA-chartered clubs. Because it can quickly disappear from sight, pilots should remain focused on the plane at all times.
