Almost Ready to Fly Aircraft

Many aeromodelers pride themselves in their building abilities; however, some modelers are more interested in flying and choose to fly models that are pre-built. In this display case are examples of Almost Ready to Fly (ARF) and Ready to Fly (RTF) models.


ARF and RTF models are not new concepts. Models could be purchased and flown straight from the box in the late 1800s.

ARF and RTF aircraft range from inexpensive "toys" to extremely capable flying examples.
