    Based on the German Ta 152 warbird, this 60" Reno Racer is perfect for slope racing (fits all existing 60" rules) and great fun flying.

    It is built for MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE !!

    Just like the original warbirds were built to maximize their performance, this slope soaring/racing warbird is designed to do the same.

    It is fast and manueverable on the frontside of the slope....

    AND....will easily drop to the back of the slope for some high-speed DS action.

    Just like the Electron 60 DS, and the race-proven U2, the Reno Racer features a very stiff wing, beefy fuselage, easy to build and did we say....fast!!!

    Both of the above planes have been regularly clocked at over 100 MPH. (Now the Reno Racer has as well). Built correctly, you can expect the same high velocity with your Reno Racer.
