The Spirit of St. Louis, flown by Charles Lindbergh, made the first solo non-stop transatlantic flight from Long Island, New York, to Paris, France departing on May 20th and arriving on May 21st, 1927. Officially known as the "Ryan NYP" (for New York to Paris), the Spirit of St. Louis was a custom-built, single engine, single-seat monoplane designed by Donald A. Hall of Ryan Airlines. It was named Spirit of St. Louis in honor of Lindbergh's supporters from his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. To save design time, the NYP was loosely based on the company's 1926 Ryan M-2 mail plane with the main difference being the 4,000-mile range of the NYP. As a non-standard design, the government assigned it the registration number N-X-211 (X for "experimental").
More than any other airplane, the Spirit of St. Louis captured the imagination of the country and led to the Golden Age of flight in the US. Due to extremely light wing-loading, the RageTM Spirit of St. Louis provides smooth, yet capable flight performance (either indoors or outdoors in light winds) that's ideal for sport or expert pilots. Experience the nostalgia of the original with scale features that include a highly-detailed scale 9-cylinder Wright Whirlwind dummy engine, a full-airfoil wing design with rib details and fuel tank vents, detailed scale landing gear and struts, and even the official name - "Ryan NYP", and registration number N-X-211 in realistic scale water slide graphics on the tail.
The Spirit of St. Louis comes fully assembled as a RTF (Ready-To-Fly), so everything needed to fly comes included in the box. In addition to the scale airframe with the installed 3-in-1 control board, you get a 2.4GHz transmitter that conveniently charges the included 1S 150mAh LiPo battery. Even the AA batteries needed to power up the transmitter are included, so you can be making your maiden flight on this amazingly detailed, historic airplane within minutes of opening the box!

The MKS HV9767 is a high quality Digital "Coreless" Servo. It has a unique shape that works in conjunction with it's aluminum casing to dissipate heat quickly, just like heat sink would. Another great feature is the two sets of housing screws. With two sets, you can remove the top for easy access to the gears without worrying about the bottom coming apart.
The nice thing about coreless servos is that a light weight wire mesh replaces the heavy steel core. By swapping the metal core for something lighter, this servo is able to produce quick acceleration and deceleration, smooth operation, excellent torque, fast response times, and a guarantied quality performance because it operates at low temperatures.

Makes mounting a single fuel tank or smoke tank much easier and stronger than with velcro straps alone. This tray design captures the neck of the tank for an exceptionally strong mounting solution. Works really well in warbirds and narrow fuselages where the installation is difficult to access. The tray is CNC cut from .125” (3mm) thick Birch plywood that assembles in minutes.
