Are you new to flying wings? Are you a seasoned pilot who just needs something that is fun to fly, simple to put together, and can take a beating right out the box? The RMRC Recruit is your aircraft! This is the absolute best fpv plane for those just getting started with flying, or those moving from multirotor to fixed wing.
It assembles in seconds and best of all, with ZERO glue required. Simply plug in your receiver to the pre-installed gyro that is already tuned to give you the best flight experience possible. The durable Black EPP foam is crash proven by best of the "Dumb Thumb Crew" at RMRC.
If you are a multirotor pilot who is getting started on the other side of the hobby, you are sure to recognize the 2206 2300kv motor. We have also made sure that the multirotor popular HD camera, the GoPro Session, fits perfectly into the nose. The power button is also easy to press right through the foam.
If you like to travel with your planes, in addition to the removable wings, the Recruit's winglets are dismantled with only 2 screws!
What's new with the Recruit V2?
Bigger Motor! - The Recruit has gone from a 2204 2300kv motor up to a 2206 2300kv and to a 3 blade propeller.
Optional wood winglets provide more durability and the option to paint them to your color scheme. (Foam winglets are still included)
Skid protector - We added a plastic fuselage protector to help keep you recruit looking new after several landings.
Reinforced wing joiners - You told us, and we listened! The Recruit V2 features extra wood panels in the wings to help reinforce the connecting area between the fuselage and wings for added durability.
Stronger Elevons - We added a carbon fiber strip to the elevons to help keep your control surfaces flat under hard turns.
Smaller Box - Every square inch of the packaging was squeezed out to give you better shipping rates!
