Quick Overview

logo Say Hi to the Bug. The super easy, assemble it in an evening, kit. 




The Bugs electric drive and small size makes it a great take-a-long, fly anywhere plane. I like to take it to the local park in the evenings and enjoy a flight or two. 

The bug is really fun to fly. It has low wing loading and a high performance airfoil that gives it some exceptional flight characteristics. For instance, aerobatics; the Bug thrives on loops and rolls and has excellent energy retention. The glide ratio is excellent and the plane will ascend in very light lift conditions. The bug is a joy to fly and easy to assemble, making it a winner in our books. 

The Bugs wing is a vacuum bagged composite, sporting a high density foam core laminated with Kevlar and Carbon Disser cloth. Additional carbon is added in strategic areas resulting in greater torsional strength and durability. The bugs pod is made of 2.4 friendly kevlar with a carbon canopy. The elevons are live hinged and pre-cut at the factory. The control horns, rods, servos and motor are pre-installed. The ESC, servos and motor are made by Emax and are quality parts. 



  • Span: 39.5in (1003 mm) 
  • Wing Area: 311sq.in (20.06sq.dm) 
  • Root Airfoil: Zup03068 (6.8% thick) 
  • All-up-weight: 10.8oz ( 308gm) w 2s 1000mAh 
  • Wing Loading: 5oz/sq.ft (15gm/sq.dm) 
  • Skill Level: Intermediate 


Kit Contents: 

  •  1 Wing
  •  2 servos, pushrods and control horns (pre installed)
  •  Motor, propeller, motor mount & ESC
  •  2 fiberglass over foam and balsa winglets 
  •  4 x M4 nylon screws (for the winglets) 
  •  2.4 friendly Kevlar pod with carbon canopy cover 



The airplane comes almost ready to fly. Start by trimming the four M4 nylon screws to 10mm. Screw on the winglets. Mark CG (see note below). Tape on the pod (we used blenderm). Change the ESC battery lead to suit your battery. Plug servos and ESC into your receiver. Install the receiver underneath LE of wing at the rear of the pod. Plug in ESC wires to motor. Bind radio system, tighten push rod links, check motor direction. Double check CG (86mm). Fly! 



CG is 86mm, measured from the tip of the LE of the wing. It is easier to mark out the CG before you tape on the pod.

Any transmitter with elevon mixing will work. 


The bugs pod easily accommodates a 2s 1000mAh LiPo. Larger batteries could possibly be used but may require adding or removing ballast to maintain proper CG. We will be testing a 3s setup soon.
