Debuting at the 2014 Horizon Indoor, held at the Four Seasons Golf Dome in Columbus, Ohio on November 7-9, 2014, the ModelAero Sportster marks a slightly new direction for a company firmly rooted in amphibious model aircraft. Long known for making available a number of different versions of the Polaris, ModelAero principal Scott DeTray reports that he had been toying around with the concept and design of the Sportster for a little while. A close friend provided valuable engineering input and the Sportster was born! With a 36 inch wingspan and an all-up-weight of only 6-8 ounces, it is not hard to predict that this model is a well behaved cruiser that can be flown indoors or outdoors on calmer days. The Sportster is available in several different versions/combos. Fly over to ModelAero.com for more information on this classic looking, low wing design.
