The F117 Blacknight
Have you ever dreamed of flying a U.S. Stealth Fighter yourself? We can be sure that someone at Starmax has as they have surpassed themselves with this stunning RC F 117 Stealth Fighter Jet!
Everything from the paintwork to the radar-deflecting angles have been recreated here for a jet that not only looks fantastic, but fliesfantastically as well! It’s made out of very lightweight and yet very sturdy EPO foam, which makes flying in windy conditions a breeze. It can be hand launched or taxied along a smooth surface – we recommend the runway option so you can take full advantage of the retractable landing gear!
This is definitely one of our most aerobatically capable aircraft, zipping around the sky in any way your skilled hands want it to! Rolls, loops, knife-edge, spins and turns are all possible with this jet, and if you’re very good you can attempt the infamous ‘Cobra’ position – a tricky stunt where the jet stands on its tail while flying forwards.
A firm favourite amongst RC Enthusiasts, this plane will suit the beginner and expert alike – as you’re only challenged or limited by your own stick-controls!
