E-flite® Leader 480—Precision Aerobatics

The nimble Leader 480 ARF is a fun-to-fly sport plane that’s a throwback to the pattern planes of the ‘70s. Its light-wing loading will put any sport pilot right at ease, but if you really want to wring it out, its symmetrical airfoil will let you fly precision aerobatics with the best of them. Assembly is simple too. You could easily have it flight-ready in a single evening. Plus, it’s small enough to throw in the backseat or trunk of your car and take most anywhere park flyers are allowed.
