Great Planes Cox Sky Ranger
Ready-to-Fly Electric R/C Trainer Park-Flyer
This is a Great Planes Cox Sky Ranger Ready-to-Fly Electric R/C Trainer Park-Flyer. The Sky Ranger is the first Cox RTF in over 30 years - and the most advanced airplane that Cox has ever offered. It includes a 2.4GHz radio system with dual rates for years of trouble-free flying and it's so complete that there's absolutely nothing left to buy. A FlightFlex airframe and the exclusive SafeProp system offer double the protection against damage, making the Sky Ranger so strong and durable that it's virtually unbreakable! It's a great deal for your flying dollar and a perfect pick for flying at the field with friends or practicing skills in your own backyard.
Ready-to-Fly When You Are:
Cox RTFs are the closest thing to true "buy and fly" R/C you can find. Assembly takes a screwdriver and less than 5 minutes. And once you insert "AA" cells in the radio and charge the flight pack, there's nothing between you and the sky except a takeoff! There's literally nothing left to buy. Everything you need (even the screwdriver! is in the box. There's a radio and "AA" batteries. A charger and a rechargeable flight battery good for up to 10 minutes of flying time. And a plane that arrives with a motor, speed control and radio gear already installed.
Fly Alone...or with Friends:
One of the big pluses a Cox RTF offers is confidence, and a state-of-the-art 2.4GHz radio system plays a big part in providing it. Signals from other radios can't affect it and nothing can touch it for dependable, trouble-free operation. You can fly alone or with friends, without waiting or interference worries. It's a full, 4-channel system like most R/C airplane radios, with this big plus: dual rates. The "New Pilot" setting offers you more reaction time and gentler handling - perfect for practicing basic flying skills. And once you've mastered them, the "Experienced Pilot" setting gives you the added responsiveness and agility you need to progress. To switch rates, just press down on the stick that controls them and you're done. It's that easy.
FlightFlex: A Crash Course in Durability:
When most planes crash, they break. But when a Cox RTF crashes, it bends - and light, durable, FlightFlex foam is the reason. Airframes made from balsa can't flex. A FlightFlex airframe does, allowing it to absorb crash energy. That prevents the airframe from breaking and protects the delicate electronics inside it, as well. Take a moment to regroup and you're good to go again.
SafeProp Protection - a Cox Exclusive:
With most planes, a nose-in crash means damage. It can be as minor as a broken prop, but can mean a bent motor shaft or worse. Fortunately, Cox RTFs have SafeProp - and SafeProp prevents damage. It pops off on impact to protect itself and to prevent damage to the rest of the plane. Recovering from a crash is simple. Just pop SafeProp in place again and you can be back in the air in seconds!
