Based on the extremely successful Multiplex Easystar and Bixler, the Sky Surfer offers amazing value for money for Rc electric flight enthusiasts!
The Sky Surfer has a big wingspan of 1400mm making it super stable and it comes complete with 2.4Ghz 4 channel transmitter, big 11.1V Li-Po battery (RTF Version) and a high powered Brushless Motor. The durability of the EPO foam has been further bettered with a high gloss surface finish and factory applied decals. Stability (at medium and high speed flight) and high performance (at low speed flight) are two strong points of this airframe and together with the high power brushless motor, scale 2-blade propeller and long duration Li-Po battery, it results in a great trainer and intermediate aircraft. The wing loading remains wonderfully light, but adding more realistic flight characteristics. The budding pilot can easily perform aerobatics such as stall turns, inverted flight, point rolls, loops and bunts with minimal effort. Beginners will find learning a joy with the auto-pilot system helping to avoid crashes.
The Sky Surfer has been designed as a smooth, thermal soaring glider that will fit into the car with ease. The 11.1v 1300mah 25c Li-Po battery has enough power to get up to height nice and quickly and gives a lengthy flight time which can be improved by adding bigger packs.
What’s the difference between RTF and PNP?
The main difference is what is included in the package. Since there are no set parameters for packaging options in this hobby, different manufacturers may vary their definitions of what is included. See below for this model:

Build Level: Minimal airplane assembly required. Less than 1 hour to begin flying (excluding battery charging time). Please dry fit and test all electronics before gluing components and assembly.
Maintenance Level: After every 10 flights and before and after storing airplane, please check all control surface horns and tighten the screws on surface horns if needed. Check the control pushrod clevises to insure no cracks are visible and no clevis is loose. Make sure transmitter batteries are always fresh and or in new condition.
What’s the difference between RTF and PNP?
The main difference is what is included in the package. Since there are no set parameters for packaging options in this hobby, different manufacturers may vary their definitions of what is included.
PNP indicates that all the foam pieces along with the crucial components of aesthetic appearance and electronic components are included with the exception of the battery, balance charger, and radio system (transmitter and receiver). Most on-board electronics are pre-installed by the manufacturer. Note that this packaging option is recommended for those who already own a radio system, battery and balance charger.
RTF includes all the foam pieces along with the crucial components of aesthetic appearance, electronic components, battery, balance charger and radio system unless noted otherwise. Most on-board electronics are pre-installed by the manufacturer. Note that this packaging option is recommended for beginners or first-time pilots. Be aware of balance charger accessories that are not included (wall adapters usually sold separately). Advanced models with the RTF option may or may not come with a battery or charger. Please read the ‘Package Includes’ area carefully under the item’s for clarification of what is included with the package.
