Description

The Redliner is a sleek, long design. Easy to build and fly, it makes a great beginner kit. The kit featues an injection-molded plastic nose cone, laser-cut balsa fins, 12″ parachute, precision printed water-slide decals, and a quick-release engine mount. Flights of over 1000 feet are possible with a C6-7 motor.
