Silverlit's Speedy Plus is remarkable for a model of this size and specification, featuring four tiny electric motors. Reminiscent of a flying fortress, it will take off from a smooth surface, and sounds sensational with all four propellers turning together. The attractive Speedy Plus gift box includes a fully assembled aeroplane supplied ready-to-fly, complete with a pre-installed 2-channel digital proportional radio control system, and an informative flight manual. Suitable for both beginners and enthusiasts, steer the model using differential thrust by simply moving the transmitter joy stick left or right, whilst operating the throttle to climb or descend. Easy to fly outdoors in calm conditions, and made of lightweight flexible foam to withstand the occasional heavy landing. The Speedy Plus incorporates a powerful lithium polymer battery and will fly for five minutes or more, whilst recharging direct from the transmitter in less than half an hour. The X-Twin aeroplanes are available on 27MHz bands A, B or C, to allow up to three different Silverlit models to be flown together. As colour and frequency varies, we are unable to guarantee which colour product or radio control band you will receive. Requires 6 x AA alkaline batteries (not included).

this plane is amazing i live in a town called Hailsham its quite small and hasn't got
many big fields but i tested it thinking like the air acrobat it would go with the wind and go up and down and that you wouldn't have no control over it but you would be surprised the four engine's really help it.
this rc plane flies straight and glides through the wind and then when you make a turn it doesn't fath about it's like flying the big rc planes like sky 1 rc plane.
Then i took it to a big field in Eastbourne really big field it was very very good i got it to go very high and strapped a camera to it i could see the whole of eastbourne and still keeping it under control
in conclusion im very happy with this plane for cost reasons and flight ability
Does need a LARGE flying area though - we use a Cornish beach when the tide is out! Def recommend as a good starter plane.
On arrival my worst fears for the £50 spend were realised comprehensively. The plane is precision engineered from a type of styrofoam making no more robust than packing 'noodle' (the foam twists sometimes used to pack out parcels). There are no moving surfaces so all control is through the propellars. The more power you give it will climb, less and it will decend. The left to right banking movement is also controlled by small adjustments in the propellar RPM. This equates to a very wide turning circle. We have quite a large garden and the turning circle on this plane made it impossible to change direction without running out of space. One really needs an open area such as a field or park. However, open area's are more prone to wind and this plane will not fly in anything over a 'breath' of air. I would say anything over a 2 knot wind stymies it.
The plane comes with 4 spare propellars, two for each side. When one becomed damaged you have to cut it off and push a new one on. It is a very delicate process for which a large pair of nail clippers is the only thing that works well. Be very careful not to clip the propellar spindle by mistake. That writes the plane off.
The front wheels are small plastic affairs on a 'U' shaped piece of wire. After two bumpy landings on tarmac they disconnected from the undercarriage. Once this happens the joint is fundamentally weakened and only a few more landings renders them unuseable.Read more ›
