The AirTrainer is designed to give new pilots in our hobby a good 'tool' to start learning to fly.
This will require some build-in behavior to limit the workload and make the plane predictable on the controls.
The FoamToAir AirTrainer uses modern building methods. All parts are CNC cut and are interlocking. Modest building skills are required. Especially for building the wing. Some sheeting needs to be applied, and a little experience is useful.
A lot of experience is put into the design of the AirTrainer. This will make building and installing the RC as straight forward as possible.
The AirTrainer is designed out for electric propulsion. A wide range of motor/Lipo combinations can be used, from 3S/3300 to 5S/4000.
The first flights are made with a relative small engine 35/48-900kv on 4S with an 11x8 prop. This is more then sufficient for training and basic aerobatics
If you plan to use the AirTrainer for glider-towing then we prefer the 5S setup, using 42-48/650kv on 12x8 or 13x6.5 prop
All CNC cut parts for Fuselage, Wing, horizontal and vertical stabilizer.
GFK aileron, elevator and rudder-horns.
Same as CNC shortkit, but now also the spars and sheeting is added. The spars are 4 lengths of 5x8 spruce, sheeting is 8 sheets of 2mm balsa.
You can make your own landing-gear bend from 4mm spring wire, or use the 2KG Carbon landing gear from PT-models, available trough Aerobatics
