Convenient Assembly and Transport
Tool-Less Propeller Assembly

Tool-Less Propeller Assembly

No tools are required to assemble the propeller base, folding propeller blade mounts and captive spinner. The entire assembly can be removed in seconds for servicing or replacement.


Designed as an excellent trainer for newer pilots, an exciting acrobatic sport flyer, and a stable slow speed platform for FPV or general leisure flying, the Shrike uses pre-installed flaps to shorten take-off distance, improve stability, and increase lift.

High-Visibility Scheme

High-Visibility Scheme

A high contrast, asymmetric color scheme in brilliant green and deep blue vinyl decals provides easy visual orientation for new pilots. Two 8mm LEDs also offer minor orientation assistance during landing in low light conditions.


The Shrike’s efficient aerodynamic design provides extended flight time using a common 3s 11.1V 2200mAh LiPo battery and fully enclosed control linkages in the tail for enhanced aerodynamics.

Full House Controls

“Full-House” Controls

"Full house" control surfaces include individually driven flaps, ailerons, rudder, and elevator, allowing RC pilots to utilize the full range of aerodynamic controls.


Fully enclosed control linkages in the tail reduce drag and increase aerodynamic efficiency. Aeration inlets draw cooling air in from the spinner and nose to cool the internal electronics.



A thoughtfully designed battery bay allows ample space to safely fit the flight battery and a modern gyro stabilized receiver according to your preference.

Strong and Durable

Carbon fiber spars reinforce the wing and fuselage, and plastic shrouds protect the nose and belly from damage during belly landings.

Strong and Durable


Designed as an excellent RC Trainer for new pilots, the Shrike is also an exciting acrobatic sport flyer that remains well suited for general leisure flying. It can also serve as a stable slow speed platform for FPV (First Person Video) equipment.
