Tower Hobbies TOWER Trainer 40 MkII ARF

Sturdy and steady, all-wood way to get airborne fast!

First-time pilots need and want what other pilots already have: success. Confidence plays a key role in achieving it — and that's why Tower Hobbies makes this bold guarantee: *You will successfully learn how to fly with a TOWER™ Trainer 40 MkII ARF or we will replace it with your choice of another trainer of up to equal value.
Now that's confidence. Tower Hobbies has it in their trainers — and here’s why.
All-wood airframes, extra-strong wing joiners and cast-metal engine mounts make them strong enough to outlast the learning process. The covering is new, a tough, repairable iron-on that holds stronger, stays tighter and looks better than any TOWER™ Trainer covering that ever was. It features a flat-bottom, high-wing design — a combination that provides maximum stability and lift, even at the low speeds pilots prefer. What’s more, it's designed for full, 4-channel control — a plus that allows you to build flight skills you’ll need to fly future planes as you learn to fly today.

*Pilot must train at an AMA-chartered club field, with a qualified, club-designated instructor. Offer valid when ARF is returned to Tower Hobbies within 60 days of purchase. Owner of ARF and club-designated instructor must sign statement attesting that all club-required safety and equipment guidelines were followed. Other restrictions may apply. Contact Tower Hobbies for more information.
