    Got the lazer-cut parts for the SportyRC, built it, and have flown it twice. It flies well. Don’t overpower it – I had too much power in the first engine, and it was wild! Changed engines, now using a Suppo 2208-14, flies well with that. Nice lazy-flying model! I got several comments from my fellow club members, so you may be getting some additional requests for the lazer-cut parts!

    I built a Sporty RC from laser cut parts. Very good quality parts and easy and enjoyable build. Clever design that is suitable for a beginner builder.

    Being easy and fun project to build is not even the best part. Best part is that it flies exceptionally well.

    Overall a great trainer.
