With a wingspan of almost six feet, the Hobbistar 60 Select RTF is easy to track in the sky, and flies well even at low speeds. That makes it a great trainer for starting out…but when you’re ready to branch out into basic aerobatics, the Hobbistar 60 Select is ideal for that, too! The radio and engine that are included are top-of-the-line. And if you’re anxious to start flying, you’ll appreciate having only 20 minutes of final assembly left to do before heading out to the field!
