FlatOuts - Flat-out fun electrics!Flatana
Almost Ready-To-Fly EP Aerobatic Foam Profile Plane

Flat-out fantastic 3D flight!


Here's a "flat foamy" made the Great Planes way. Straight. Strong. Easy on the eyes. And absolutely outrageous in 3D action! Based on the Italian World Aerobatic Team's Katana, the Flatana also excels at the low speeds and tight turns needed for indoor flying. And it goes together quickly — without tape!

  • Flight-ready in only 2-3 hours.
  • Custom hardware provides unmatched strength and performance!
  • Includes T-370 brushed motor with 5:1 gearbox and slow fly prop.
Brushless Upgrade
Parts Layout
Fly in just 2-3 hours! Using foam-safe CA and the supplied custom hardware, you'll easily assemble the Flatana's pre-printed foam panels and carbon rods into a sturdy, great-looking 3D model.
Motor, Gearbox & Prop
A powerful T-370 brushed motor and gearbox are included and ready for installation. Also supplied are a slow fly propeller and prop saver that enables it to deflect at landing.
"For just a little time and money, the Flatana offers big returns — outdoing other foam profile models in looks, construction quality, and 3D aerobatic ability."

Innovative hardware for Tape-Free Assembly
Control Horns
Control Horns
The control horns have a larger than normal hole that fits the Z-bend pushrod connector without slop. The control does double duty as a hinge, reducing weight and assuring correct linkage geometry.
Landing Gear
Landing Gear
Molded strut supports hold the 2 mm carbon rod landing gear legs in position. They're also braced at the fuselage, wing and wheels for a strong, properly reinforced landing gear.
Amazing Control Throw
Amazing Control Throw
Large servo arms and control horns offer up to 80 degree deflection.
  Clip-Hinge System
Clip-Hinge System
Clip-Hinges allow control surfaces to pop off in a crash and avoid damage.
A large bearing surface on the Z-bends reduces wear to prevent slop, unlike linkage systems that rely on small wire Z-bends. To make installation simple, the 1 mm carbon rod is secured in the Z-bend with a drop of CA.
The tail gear pivots on the carbon fin post, allowing the snap-in tailwheel to steer the airplane while on the ground.
