    This is the radio controlled, glow powered, Ready-To-Fly,
    Hobbico NexSTAR Select .46 trainer airplane.
    For Beginner Modeler/Fliers.

    With such features as AFS (Active Flight Stabilization), SpinControl
    Airfoil Extensions, SpeedBrakes Training Flaps and much more,
    no other trainer offers so much help for the first-time pilot.

    In addition to the airplane, radio, and engine, this package also includes
    a RealFlight NexSTAR Windows PC disc with transmitter interface
    to use with the included Futaba radio allowing the modeler to
    practice and perfect their skills without risking the airplane.

    are joined with a steel rod.
    Flat bottom high mount configuration

    Extensions provide lift even in a stall to keep the NexSTAR level
    and the pilot in control.
    PivotFlex Wing Mounting System fastens with one nylon bolt, a
    rubber retainer and pivoting channel absorb minor jolts of
    normal use, more severe jolts cause the wing to separate from the
    fuselage and escape the full force of impact.

    section of wing near fuselage and hold airspeed to a minimum to
    insure smooth landings, removeable as pilot skills increase

    radio gear from damaging vibration
    Radio: Futaba T6EXAP 6-channel with square trainer port
    AFS (Active Flight Stabilization) that actively searches for any
    signs of instability and takes immediate action to correct them.
    This system uses on-board electronic sensors that detect
    instability-just release the sticks and AFS does the rest.
    Sensitivity is adjustable as pilot gains flight skills.
    Landing Gear: Duraluminum SnapGear Quick Landing Gear Mounts (US
    Patent #6,886,780) lock in place with a snap and provide the
    strongest landing gear of any trainer, also easily removeable

    can also be equipped with flaps

    The Great Planes 2¼" Nylon Spinner in White (GPMQ4515), Black
    (GPMQ4516) and Red (GPMQ4517) can be used as a replacement
    spinner. If using the prop supplied with the NexSTAR, care must
    be taken to trim and sand each opening equally in the spinner
    cone to maintain balance.

    Also available without radio, engine or NexSTAR simulation
