Overview

The nimble Leader 480 park flyer is the fun-to-fly sport plane that is ideal for anyone interested in precision aerobatics. Its light wing loading will put any intermediate pilot at ease when flying on the slow side of the envelope. But for those who really want to wring it out, the Leader’s symmetrical airfoil and classic pattern plane lines allow it to fly precision aerobatics with the best of them. Assembly is so simple, it could easily be flight-ready in a single evening. Plus, it's small enough to put in the backseat or trunk of a car and fly most anywhere park flyers are allowed. Shown with optional 1/9 Civilian Pilot (EFLA156) and optional 1.75-Inch aluminum spinner (EFLSP175) - sold separately
