THE ASSASSIN IS OUR NEW TOP SELLING COMBAT PLANE!!!!

The Assassin is 49.95 plus S/H.  Link to www.crashtesthobby.com for more information about special offers.

We are introducing the Assassin. It has all of the great flying of the Pinata but will fly slower, it is quieter, It has more prop clearance, it flies well without fins and now comes as a kit with a new custom stainless steel motor mount, 1.9 lb EPP elevons, a Formica motor plate, a carbon spar and horns, pushrods and connectors.

LOOK MA, NO FINS!!!!  I have had the fins knocked off my combat wings so many times I specificly set out to design a plane that didn't need them.  The new stable design flies so well without a rudder or fins I don't even miss them.  Having a plane without fins is great for combat, yard flying and simply loading it in the car without breaking something off.  If you watch the videos you will see the plane showing off its stability in slow flight.  This is the only power plane I know that is this aerobatic and stable without fins.

We have had a custom 18 gauge stainless steel motor mount machined for the Assassin.  It is strong enough to hold up in combat but light enough to let the plane fly.  The mount is only taped on so it can be easily removed to make the Assassin an instant slope soarer.  Reattaching the mount and motor takes less than one minute.

We designed the plane to be a quieter more neighbor friendly plane by using a larger prop turning at a slower speed.  Watch the videos and notice the difference in the sound between the planes.  Planes that turn a smaller propeller at higher speed not only make a louder noise but it is a more piercing and irritating sound.

The new Assassin will fly slow making it a better plane for combat.  It is not the fast plane that gets the most hits but the plane that can fly slow in formation that makes the most contact.  It still has a good top speed of over 70 mph on the recommended motor and battery.  At 15 oz The Assassin is capable of vertical climbs and can be set up to roll like crazy.  It is a safe plane because it weighs only 15 oz.  Many combat planes are close to 30 oz which is heavy enough to inflict personal or property damage in an accident.  The Assassin has a soft leading edge, the prop in back and a low overal weight.  In the videos I repeatedly catch the plane.  This is not something I would do with most planes. 

The Assassin is designed to take a beating and keep on flying. It is wire cut from solid, extra thick 1.3 pound EPP foam so you can bury the battery, radio and motor in the EPP foam for those people who really want to hit something. This entire wing is built of solid EPP, not just an EPP leading edge like some of the manufacturers are doing to save money.  It also comes with 1.9 lb EPP foam elevons.  The EPP elevons are just as flexible as the wing reducing combat rash and keeping you in the air while the competition is out for repairs. 

 We cover the elevons with bidirectional reinforced tape to make them stiff.  This same tape is the primary covering of the plane giving the plane an incredible shell of strength..  The bidirectional tape does not need a spray adhesive to stick to the EPP foam and can be applied quickly, greatly reducing the building time.  It is strength rated at over 150 lbs per square inch making it a match in heaven for EPP foam.  Amusingly we sometimes use a light spray of 3M77 on the top of the tape so we can airbrush and the paint will stick.

We have seen these planes do parking lot dives, hit trees and walls, and most desirable of all hit other planes in combat and survive with no damage to plane or radio. I'm sure we could find a way to break it but with the new bidirectional tape and EPP it will really take a beating.

We are cost conscious.  These wings have been designed to fly well with an inexpensive $6 motor and a 1300 3S battery to save on overall cost on a high performance plane.

The Assassin is a new club combat favorite. We dare you to try to smash it up!
