Mark 8 RC Micro F3P 3D Indoor Park Flyer Electric Model Airplane Kit 16” (400mm) Wingspan
Our latest iteration of micro F3P design that pushes the lower limit on where you can fly. Its design follows the lines of our larger and also great flying model the Hangar Rash, but scaled down to approx. 75% to accommodate the latest in micro RC technology.
A super light, high performance, micro F3P style aerobatic pattern aircraft. This little plane is a great small scale 3D plane, able to perform all maneuvers, and perfect for beginners to aerobatic flight training. Great for indoors or outdoors when the winds are light. Small enough to easily hover, do rolling circles, knife edge, high alpha, inverted, and all other sorts of aerobatics in comfort of your own living room, and just the right size to fly any maneuver thinkable in your own backyard. Discover the benefits of being able to practice your 3D flying skills anywhere, any weather, and anytime you get a spare moment. When paired with our power combo and recommended battery, you will enjoy easy construction, an over two-to-one thrust to weight ratio, and long flights.
All of the Buzzard Model kits are designed around a power combo, and when a recent breakthrough in micro all-in-one receiver/servo/ESC “bricks” became available from Crossover-rx, we came up with a new power combo, the 4 gram pro-brick power combo. It’s main component is the Crossover-rx MXL-RX62E, which is a breakthrough in two ways; It is based on the popular and proven MXL-RX62H, but adds a 5A/1S brushless ESC and the optional SR3X gyro stabilization. Also, early linear servos were slow and didn’t always center well, but years of refinement show up in the linear servos on these receivers, these are fast and precise. The second most important part about the 4 gram pro-brick power combo is the Happymodel EX1103-6000kv brushless outrunner motor, which is of unmatched quality and performance. Pairing these components with a common GWS style 5x3 prop, and a Lectron Pro 3.7V 160mAh 25C LiPo, yields an impressive 60 grams of static thrust. The best part is that all of the components are plug and play, no soldering, or figuring out what plugs or adapters you need. Also, the all-in-one bricks eliminate a lot of messy, heavy, and draggy wires.
Building the Mark 8 easily was an important design consideration. The very small size of many of the parts and components is the only challenging part of this build which is easily overcome with some tools like tweezers and maybe a magnifying glass if your eyesight is not so keen. The basic construction is 3mm genuine Depron foam, reinforced with inlaid carbon fiber rods. All of the parts are precisely manufactured to assemble easily, and instructions are step by step in real english with big pictures. The covering is a .0005 mylar film that is easily applied with spray adhesive, no ironing, no shrinking, no dope or paint. The kit comes unpainted, but is easily painted during assembly with common craft acrylic paints or colored markers, painting instructions are included. Also a full color printed decal sheet is included. Because of the completeness of the instructions, it is impractical to include printed versions with each kit, so they are available online here:
