Behind the firewall is a large tray for quick and easy access to your fuel tank or lipo battery packs.

In the air, our Trophy Racers are quick and agile aircraft. Their short-coupled designs are aimed for more experienced pilots and will give plenty of performance whether you're racing them, doing some stunt flying or just cruising around for fun.
