The Benett is a brand-new EPP foam airplane from STEM+C and Ritewing. Designed to be an easy to fly trainer airplane. The kit is designed with the beginner pilot in mind. But it’s not just for beginners, it’s also for those who like to push the limits and experiment with different wings, motors, prop sizes, and flight controllers. This airplane was designed so that you as the builder can tinker and experiment. The airplane will be available in a few different kits. This is one airplane that allows you to enter the hobby with a very basic, easy to build and fly airplane, but then grow with you as you learn and gain experience. The airplane will fly on a variety of different motors and prop sizes, so for those of you who have motors, ESC’s, and propellers laying around this is the perfect airplane for you. After you build the initial kit, and learn to fly it line of sight, you can then add a camera and video transmitter to enjoy FPV flight. Next add a Matek flight controller and upload Ardupilot or iNav and your off and running with an autonomous UAV. This is one airplane that you will purchase and have for a long time because it will grow with you as your grow with experience. We will maintain a database of various 3d printed motor mounts and camera mounts for this model, along with anything else the community develops for this kit. My hope is that you enjoy learning and flying the Benett.
