Being so light and powerful makes the Alpha perfect for aerobatics and is used by the Patrouelle de France flight demonstration team to spectacular effect. The Red Bull company also own an Alpha and use it for their own demonstration purposes, painted in their own livery.

It's not just the Patrouelle de France who can perform aerobatics in an Alpha; once you've mastered this jet you'll be able to attempt stunts such as: inside loops, outside loops, axial rolls, inverted flight, knife edge, stall turns, hammerheads, and spins are all possible. If you're really good you will be able to perform the famous 'Cobra Manoeuvre' with your Alpha.
This We jet comes with a 2.4G radio which means the range is longer and more stable plus you do not have to worry about interference from other fliers. It is also equipped with a powerful brushless motor, for the best performance. The plane is made from strong but lightweight foam that is more resistant to crashes and gives easier stable flight even in windy conditions. This aeroplane can take off from the ground or can be hand launched
This plane is 90% assembled and so only a few minutes of final finishes are needed before you can fly. Also everything you need is in the box, apart from 8 AA batteries, which you'll need to power the radio contol transmitter. The model comes with a choice of US or Luftwaffe decals (see picture, below).
