Galaxy

Description

With its “retro” vinyl decal, brushed aluminum nozzle assembly, and nostalgic fin styling, the Galaxy is one classy bird! One of our most complex kits in current production, the Galaxy is a true modelers kit but our detailed 11 page instruction manual makes the construction easy to understand. This kit is a great Level 2 bird that gives very memorable flights on easy access J350 or J570 motors, or fly it on a K550 and watch it scream!
