The new Airbus A380 from Century is certainly impressive. It's a 53" span, EPO foam creation with decal decoration nicely applied. The foam is of the shiny, smooth skin variety which also adds to the appearance.

It's supplied ARTF requiring just a modest amount of final assembly and, helpfully, the power systems are pre-wired and ready to connect. Power systems of which there are four, four small brushless motor driven fans and four 30-amp ESCs. Five pre-fitted servos are included so just a receiver and 3S 3200mAh Li-Po battery is required to fly.

With no fewer than 18 wheels, the undercarriage is 'fixed' but we're sure ingenious modellers will soon install their own retracts. 


The Airbus A380 is £299.99 from Century UK and all good Century stockists. Look out for the RCM&E review in due course.
