Slow Ride 3D from Tower Hobbies


Gary Wright’s passion and dedication to RC flight shines through with the all-out 3D performance of the Tower Hobbies Slow Ride EP ARF. It's the only plane designed and developed for high-level, super-slow 3D maneuvers. Large control surfaces and short, direct linkages provide seamless, complete control over every flight. An exceptional power-to-thrust ratio ensures longer flight times, meaning you can execute multiple exciting aerobatic maneuvers with a fully charged LiPo pack. For close, tight flight that’s also low and slow, give the Slow Ride 3D EP ARF a spin!
