FMS is dedicated to helping pilots of every skill level experience the thrill of flying their perfect radio-control airplane. For first-time hobbyists, lack of space can be as much of an obstacle as lack of RC know-how. FMS therefore created the Ranger 850mm, a 33.5” span high-wing trainer with the flight innovations of the 1220m (48”) span FMS Ranger in a more compact size suited for flying almost anywhere. It’s the perfect way to begin earning your wings.
Like the FMS Ranger 1220mm, this model’s high-wing airframe and wide-stance tricycle landing gear provide forgiving handling characteristics in the air and on the ground, making it easy for inexperienced pilots to fly. The included motor, ESC and micro servos add to the lightweight, 305g (10.8 oz) airplane’s incredible performance.
