How to Order



The Predator X is extreme with its extra long 72 wing span, and that is exactly what you need for that extra edge to grab more streamers!

We spent the Summer and Fall of 2002 perfecting "The X." It now has a super strong wing spar. This baby does the tightest turns you've EVER seen!

New unique features:

  • super strong spar -- no flex in turns, we mean it!
  • big 2" elevons -- roll with authority
  • symmetrical airfoil for super tight inside -and- outside loops
  • sturdy integral "tank handle" -- get a secure grip on this big wing for launch
  • removable large fin -- great yaw stability (with multiple streamers on wing tip)
    removable for ease of storage and repair
  • super clean design -- radio components protected and faired aerodynamically under wing skin--
    no heavy fuselage, or ugly components hanging in the breeze
  • high mounted upright engine -- easy to service, now with generous muffler clearance (Norvel owners love this -- tilt down mufflers or pipes fit fine!)

Famous TufFlight durability gives you unmatched freedom in sport and combat.
