    Plane Dominator KFm3 Flying Wing 1.0

    This is the Dominator, a simple build aimed to be a direct competitor to the FT Arrow, but easier to build. The KFm wing is very easy to assemble and the airframe is extremely tough, meaning it's a good plane for a beginner, or just a good first wing. It will fly on the A/F pack or equivalent...

    The Simple Stick flies great at any speed - with a Power Pack B it's slow enough to fly in very small spaces but with a C pack it really cruises nicely! It glides really well and has very gentle stalls. The wingspan is around 1 meter - 970mm above the spar. For a full flight review, check out...
