50 cc engine
painted cowl
control surfaces
The cowl is spacious enough to accommodate most popular 50 cc gasoline engines. Templates for installing the recommended engine are included.  

Light and easy to attach, the painted cowl is color-matched to the factory-applied MonoKote film. An ABS insert adds rotary engine detail and channels cooling air over the cylinder head. A CNC-machined aluminum spinner (GPMA4020) is available separately.

  All control surfaces are designed for extreme 3D maneuvers, from the rudder and elevator on the tail to the massive dual ailerons on the top and bottom wings.

carbon fiber tail wires
Swift, precise response – and a stress-resistant airframe built from laser-cut, interlocking wood parts – let you take the M-12s down low with confidence... and into new and more aggressive stunts with ease.   In addition to easily accessible, painted aluminum cabanes, the M-12s also includes fiberglass struts that add sleek good looks and simplify wing assembly.   M-12s design offers a wealth of small performance touches, including the use of ultra-light, super-strong carbon-fiber tail wires instead of traditional piano wire versions.

The canopy doubles as an access hatch for onboard gear and a foundation for a detailed cockpit. Bright colors on the painted pilot bust and modern instrument panel add realistic looks without added work.   Bold bipe styling and a one-of-a-kind MonoKote® trim scheme make the M-12s a standout in appearance as well as performance. Different graphics on the top and bottom wings simplify orientation...even at a distance.
