Great Planes Avistar 30cc Electric-Powered ARF Sport Trainer 90.5″ Airplane

This giant keeps growing with you.

    Add the Avistar 30cc/EP to your hangar today for giant-scale sport training — and it will continue giving you new opportunities to try optional flaps, floats, and even sailplane towing. Easy to fly for less experienced pilots, yet with the power and maneuverability to satisfy seasoned fliers, it’s the perfect introduction to gasoline engines or large electric power.                                             The Avistar 30cc/EP’s realistic looks are highlighted by a fiberglass cowl and wheel pants; clear side windows and windshield; and a removable, black ABS cockpit floor. Decals are included for adding an N-number, cargo door and landing lights to the preapplied covering scheme.                                                 A spacious fuselage allows ample room for installation of your radio gear and power system components. A magnetically secured hatch makes LiPo changes fast and easy.                                                                                                                With gasoline power, the Avistar 30cc/EP is economical to fly and needs minimal maintenance.                                                                                                               With a brushless electric motor system, you’ll reduce noise and enjoy “instant” power — ideal if you plan to add floats and fly off water.                          Factory-hinged flaps are built into the wing. They can easily be made operational by cutting the flaps free from the ailerons and adding the required servos. With functional flaps, your model will be capable of slower takeoff and “light as a feather” landing speeds.

Options available for the Avistar 30cc/EP.

taildragger & tricycle landing gear

The Avistar 30cc/EP includes taildragger landing gear. If you prefer a tricycle setup, use the optional Nose Gear Conversion Set (GPMA4568) and Nose Gear Wheel Pant (GPMA4561). With either configuration, ground handling is solid and predictable.

floats and rudders

For thrilling water takeoffs, replace the landing gear with Great Planes’ optional Float Kit (GPMA1676). Twin water rudders provide precise taxiing control and “kick up” when striking obstacles to avoid damage. Each float’s servo and linkages (required) mount internally for clean looks.

tow release

Help your sailplane flying buddies quickly reach altitude. Just add a servo and the optional, machined aluminum Sailplane Tow Release (GPMA4567).
