Air Truck was originally designed as an aircraft to tow the Stigra glider. Given its high power and flight characteristics, it can eventually tow any glider up to 1.2 kg AUW. The V-tail may seem surprising on such an aircraft, but it is better for towing, of course - the tow line is routed between the V-planes and does not disturb the pilot by interfering with the rudder. The aircraft is very predictable, so even less experienced pilots can tow gliders for the first time without worries.
The plane was designed by the world champion electric pylon racer Jan Sedlacek. Hence the idea to use it in fun pylon races! Air truck racing is becoming a thing in the Czech Republic. For faster flight, more durability or racing, you can cover the plane with a 38 micron heat seal film (also available on this eshop).
The wings are removable, fixed by two plastic screws. The disassembled plane is easy to transport. The decent size of the fuselage means you can easily hide all the electronic parts inside. The battery cover is held in place by magnets so you can change the battery quickly and easily.
Air Truck was also designed as a docile aileron trainer - just limit the control throws to about 20 degrees or less.
