Microaces are 1/24th profile scale airplane replica kits uniquely designed specifically after aircrafts that were flown by actual pilots in history.
All Microaces Standard Kits come with all the parts required to build the complete airframe.
These warbird replica's consist of a lightweight Depron Aero airframe and highly detailed stickers that build up into a profile scale micro model.
The RC profile airplane kits include detailed printed stickers, carbon fiber and other components that strengthen the Depron airframe. The kits come with clear, step by step illustrated assembly manual as well as video tutorials available online. http://www.youtube.com/microacesTV
All you need to add is the Spektrum AR6400 or AR6400L receiver and your DSM2 compatible transmitter and you're up and flying!

David and Josh spent some time flying these warbirds at a local indoor event, putting these RC planes to the test!
Though the stickers help reinforce the airframe, we found that they tend to get loose and bind the servos. They could be trimmed with a razor to help prevent this. We ended up pushing them back into place after each flight.
Though it's not recommended, Josh was able to use the Vapor Li-Pocharger brick to charge the Microaces batteries.
Josh and David had different experiences flying these micro profile planes. David found the micro warbirds to tend to tip-stall very easily, or as he would say "they are tip-stall'ee".
For the best experience, you'll want to be very easy on the controls while flying. When the airplanes are setup correctly, they fly very nicely!
The precision cut Depron Aero airframe, detailed hi-res stickers and a fully illustrated assembly manual offer a great kit building experience and unique overall flying experience!
We'd like to thank Jon Porter and the team at Microaces for sending out some of these micro profile-scale kit warbird replica's for us to review!
