178.99 Seagull Challenger Kit

ARTF kits are great, we all love 'em and we all appreciate the time savings they provide, however a growing number of R/C flyers are finding that, having assembled one or two ARTFs, what they really fancy is a stab at traditional building.
Some choose a plan build for their first foray into balsa-bashing but most seek a simple kit, a kit such as the Seagull Challenger, that offers all the advantages of laser cut parts.
Carefully chosen hardware and an instruction manual that guides you step-by-step through the build process.
In truth, the Challenger is the perfect choice for not only does it ensure a problem-free build, it offers an opportunity to produce a one-off model in a colour scheme of your choice and promises a fantastic, agile aerobatic flight performance when you're finished.
Building your own R/C model is absorbing, enjoyable and immensely satisfying and that's why so many are deciding to give it a go. It's also why the Challenger kit is such a popular choice amongst sport flyers and those seeking a good follow-on aerobat.
