Great Planes Super Sportster EP ARF Review Great Planes Super Sportster EP ARF Review
By Albert Wahrhaftig
The Great Planes Super Sportster EP ARF is a job done right. It flies like its glo-powered cousins, is capable of all pre-3D aerobatics, and is high quality throughout. The performance is suprisingly strong on the supplied can motor and NiCads. Well built, good looking, and with everything but a radio furnished, it is a great value at a modest price. You can look forward to a lot of good flying with this tried and true design.
