Tech Notice Hobbistar 60 MK III

Quicker assembly, bigger size and awesome flying potential!

Hobbistar 60 MK III - huge 71-inch wingspan improves stability and visibility. 100% wood ARF

If you're searching for a trainer that's easy to spot in the sky and flies well even at low speeds, look no further! Hobbico's 90% prebuilt Hobbistar 60 MKIII is the one. The semi-symmetrical airfoil of its nearly 6-foot wing gives you the chance to branch out and learn basic aerobatics... without giving up a trainer's confidence-boosting stability. The Hobbistar 60 MKIII AWARF (All Wood, Almost Ready-to-Fly) construction offers a big head start toward hitting the air. The hard work of assembly has been done: Main structures have already been built and covered with a durable iron-on covering. In fact, no covering application tools or skills are needed, so you can concentrate on gaining and expanding your piloting techniques!

  • A generous hardware package is included, with wheels, fuel tank, adjustable engine mount, pushrods, and spinner. You only add the engine, radio, adhesives, and field box accessories.
  • With its large, nearly 6-foot wingspan, the model is easy to see in the air and flies well at low speeds to increase confidence at the controls.
  • The semi-symmetrical airfoil adds the potential for performing basic aerobatic maneuvers, without sacrificing the stable comfort of a trainer.

The wire landing gear simply plugs into the bottom of the Hobbistar MKIII's fuselage. It's held in place by landing gear straps which fasten into predrilled holes.

The Hobbistar MKIII combines prebuilt convenience with the all-wood quality of a kit. The construction method increases durability and makes the Hobbistar much easier to repair than most ARFs. Major sections arrive already covered with multi-color graphics for a bright, attention-getting trim.
