The demand has been growing for a tough yet superbly performing sport aerobatic model - What could fulfil this role better than a scaled down and purpose designed electric version of the famed WOT 4? Developed around popular 3 cell 2100~2500mAh Li-Po battery packs, the WOT 4-E has an amazing performance and is ideal for small field use - or where there are noise restrictions - yet is large enough to hold its own at the busiest flying sites. The model is strong and light with the additional benefit of an easy access battery mount with magnetically secured hatch cover – no need to take the wings off with this model
This is not just any foam model! It’s a very clever WOT 4 that can be flight ready in under 30 minutes!
The beautiful EPO mouldings hide an innovative internal structure that adds strength where needed and locks all the components together. The impressive specification includes a carbon main spar, carbon fuselage spine, shock resistant engine mount, simple battery access and battery retaining moulding, with further carbon reinforcement for the tailplane and ailerons. The four servos, brushless motor and 30A ESC are all pre-installed. Just add a receiver and a 3 cell 2100~2500mAh battery of your choice then let the fun begin

Want a sports aerobatic model that is economic to buy, economic to operate and stunning to fly? You've just found it! The ST Models MX-2 is based on the full size, aerobatic aircraft of the same name and then modified for model flying characteristics. Supplied complete with powerful 920Kv brushless motor, 12 x 6 propeller, a 36A brushless ESC, four powerful new 9g servos and with them all pre-installed. All that is needed is 30 minutes of final assembly and applying the stunning colour decals. Setups are provided for both sports and 3D flying (even mixes). For serious 3D pilots, the movements make maneouvres like static loops, rolls and the 'waterfall' and 'parachute' quite within your reach. To provide that 3D control power with precision has been achieved with a totally new servo amplifier to give high resolution and holding power combined with strong torque. The control pushrods are kept short by placing each servo close to the surface it is operating. Using a 3S 2100-2500mAh Li-Po, there is enough power to hover vertically with ease and then punch out straight up! The choice of a 12 x 6 propeller limits the 'torque' turn effect and eases current consumption by matching the load and motor power/Kv rating effectively. Torque rolls are possible in both directions. Access to the battery is via a clip-in underside hatch, simple! Like all ST models, the airframe is moulded accurately in 'ding' resistant EPO foam. The wings are removable by removing the two quick turn locking screws and sliding out of the fuselage, great for compact transportation. Access to the radio compartment requires pulling off the clip-on canopy moulding. The tough, aluminium undercarrige soaks up those landings on our club patches so well, but the model is hardly moving forward anyway! As a model to hone your aerobatic skills or just cruise around on a Sunday afternoon, the ST Models MX-2 is hard to beat. And it looks 'cool' too!.

Ripmax ST Discovery RTF 2.4 GHZ R/C
The ST model Discovery is all about learning to fly radio control model aircraft for the very first time. The Discovery has been totally designed with that aim in mind and has all the 'easy to build' and 'easy to fly' characteristics that the beginner needs. What's more, the time between opening the box and being ready to fly is measured in minutes not hours! This version includes the excellent ST Model 2.4gHz radio ssytem, flight battery and balance charger as standard.

The computer designed structure has been optimised to give the best combination of stable performance, docile handling and durability. With etensive experience in designing complex EPO moulded models with carbon fibre re-inforcement and injection moulded plastic, ST Model have created a modern masterpiece in trainer design. Much of the structure is hidden deep inside but can be seen in strong light conditions as the EPO moulding becomes more transparent. For you, the owner, that is kind of unimportant as it is all pre-built inside. All you will be doing is the final assembly with a few screws. Just four will have the airframe assembled and then two small grub screws need tightening up on the elevator and rudder servo pushrods. That's it!!
When you are learning, the likelihood of a 'less than perfect' landing has been thought about too. There is a heavy duty, sprung noseleg and tough aluminium undercarriage. That main undercarriage is screwed to a special plastic moulding incorporated, longidudinally inside the foam fuselage. The screws are designed to pull out rather than damaged the fuselage in a heavy arrival.
The semi-symmetrical, tapered wing with anti tip-stall, curved wing tips will give all the correct characteristics in both calm and windy conditions plus a docile stall. The ailerons are responsive yet progressive without giving over-control to panic a learner. In fact, the same kind of progressive response comes from the elevator too. The rudder and nose wheel are connected for positive direction control on the ground and smooth response in the air.
Thrust is courtesy of a powerful, outrunner style, brushless motor and a 30A brushless electronic speed controller (ESC). The propeller is an impact absorbing 10 x 5 that has been matched to the motor for high thrust and low current consumption. The 3 cell 1800mAh Li-po battery included should give around 10 minutes of flight time under normal 'training' conditions. There is room to fit a bigger capacity battery too if you want and it will have very little efect on the centre of gravity and handling. We recommend the Intellect 3S 2100mAh 20C battery as an alternative. Also included is the Pro-Peak Mini Mize balance charger that will have the battery re-charged and ready for flight in less than an hour.
As there is no gluing involved, replacement airframe parts can be fitted in seconds, should damage be incurred. They can be purchased from your local dealer. Keeping you in the air and enjoying model flying is a critical part of the design philosophy.
Once you have learnt to fly with the Discovery, there are many more exciting models in the ST range to temp you!
