The 2016 Larks Spring Fling airplane pilots prize will be an RTF Ripmax Excalibur Turbine Jet powered by a Jet Central Rabbit! Yes, a first to our knowledge anywhere in the USA!

This jet will be suitable as a high performance sport jet to the accomplished jet pilot, it is also perfect for the "first jet". This is a complete jet with retracts, flaps, turbine, all valves, servos etc. Just bind, little programing and fly!

The MAP Price on this one item alone will be over $5,000. (more like $5,600.)

Keep it, sell it, auction it, etc. A super win for one lucky pilot!

Second prize is the Align Dominator 500 L RTF Electric Helicopter!
