The Albatross is a unique slow flyer designed to put its nose on the horizon and level its own wings without a pilot. It is very quiet and designed to use inexpensive electronics. It is one of my favorite night planes and small park flyers because it is quiet and easy to fly. The fuselage is a strong solid block of EPP foam which increases its durability. You will cut holes in the EPP fuselage to install your radio rather than installing electronics in a hollow fuselage. We recommend you build your Albatross with a pod mounted motor because it protects the prop and motor and leaves room for a camera up front. The Albatross is available with ailerons for more advanced flying and FPV but don't underestimate the stability and fun of the polyhedral wing
New flyers can fly this plane. It can turn itself right side up, level the wings, and put its nose on the horizon without pilot input. It has a unique slanted motor angle and polyhedral wing that make the magic happen. It flies just as well with the optional pod mounted motor configuration which protects the motor and prop and gets the prop out of the way if you want a camera on the nose. The Albatross makes a great FPV plane because it is self stabilizing and has long flights without having to carry a big battery. It can fly in more wind than any other slow flyer we have flown. We recommend it for flyers who are having trouble staying in the air. It is also a great plane for night flying and flying in parks where you need a quiet plane. Whether you’re a new flyer looking to get some experience, or an experienced flyer looking for a plane to train your friends and family, this unique model is designed to help you.
The Albatross with the polyhedral wing is designed to use the same low cost motor, speed control and servos as the high performance Assassins and Widowmakers. The Albatross flies well at 1/3 to 1/2 throttle giving long relaxed flight times. This is a great night flyer with LED lights. This is our most popular trainer sized airplane. It is relaxed and fun to fly.
