VMAR Picanto Alpha - Dr. Jekyll, Meet Mr. Hyde.
Few planes offer so much feature packed performance and flexibility than the VMAR Picanto Alpha, transforming this high wing trainer into a low wing agile machine, equating to a true Jekyll & Hyde capability. Whether you are stepping into flight as an entry level pilot or searching for a high performance, low wing aerobatic aircraft, the Picanto fits the bill at every angle, making this multi-purpose beast the perfect machine, no matter what your skill may be.
Arriving in ARF form that can be assembled in hours, the Picanto Alpha is pre-covered in beautiful Polycote ECS covering, making this plane ultra easy to assemble, with a lovely aesthetic in every respect. Furthering this with a true bolt together build that utilizes a no glue assembly process, VMAR couldn't make this plane any easier to build, getting you out to the field and into the air.
VMAR keeps the flexibility coming, with the ability to setup this plane in tricycle gear or tail dragger form. Add in an easy to transport and store two piece wing, the Picanto Alpha makes flying a breeze, allowing the aircraft to be easily disassembled for excellent overall functionality.
Designed with a 64.7" wingspan with a light wing loading for ultra smooth performance, the two piece wing features (1) servo per aileron for the ultimate in precision and control. Move the wing from high to low, and the mood changes quickly, transforming the Picanto Alpha from a rock solid trainer to a high performance low wing thriller.
Ready to accept your power of choice, VMAR pulls all the stops with maximum flexibility, offering your choice of electric or glow power, with enough room up front to easily accommodate a large array of power. From high wattage brushless power or 2 & 4 stroke glow applications, the Picanto Alpha offers the ultimate in user choice, with no modifications required due to the Power Module design.
Stunning from every angle, the VMAR Picanto Alpha was purposely designed to keep the thrills coming, morphing from high wing stability to low wing aerobatic thrills - all with the very same plane.
