Pilots have been complaining about the grass being too high, so they send you out with your lawn mower to cut it down during the air show’s lunch break. When the lawn mower operator bends down to tie his shoe laces, the mower takes off on it’s own as he chases after it. The crowd goes wild. Nothing grabs the audiences attention like seeing a lawn mower soar through the sky. Not only is the Sky Cutter .40 V2 exciting to watch, it’s also a pleasure to fly.
Flight Performance: Take offs are a breeze as the Sky Cutter takes to the air with ease. Simply apply power and pull up slightly on the controllers once speed has built up. High speed or slow, the Sky Cutter can fly at any speed and still retain a constant and steady flight path. Landings require a little finesse as the Sky Cutter will come in at a high alpha angle. With a combination of power and elevator, it will touch down softly.
