Stable Flying Trainer

Because it’s larger than park fliers, the Avistar Elite is also more stable and better able to handle windy conditions.

Capable of Aerobatics

Just as your high-wing trainer helped you learn basic flight skills, the Avistar Elite gives you extra confidence when beginning to fly aerobatics.

Colorful Trim Scheme

Built-up wood sections have been expertly finished in a colorful, contemporary trim scheme. Great Planes and Avistar Elite logo decals are also included.

Semi-symmetrical Wing

The Avistar Elite wing is semi-symmetrical, or slightly rounded on the bottom. It combines trainer-like stability with the ability to execute smooth rolls and other aerobatics that flat-bottom trainers cannot perform.

Simple Wing Assembly

Wing halves feature prehinged control surfaces, installed aileron servos, and bays for optional flaps. Simply slide them onto the joiner tube. No glue is used, so they remove easily for transport.

Removable Landing Gear

In seconds, the removable main landing gear snaps into a factory-installed mount. The steerable nose wheel is already installed.

Time-saving Details

Clevises and control horns are already attached to the model’s factory-hinged control surfaces-one of many details that save time in the workshop and get you flying faster.
