The release of SebArt's 2008 model line-up has now started with the Angel 30E being perhaps the most keenly awaited. A smaller and more affordable version of the existing Angel 50, the '30 is a 50" span aerobat designed for the same Hacker brushless motor that powers their Katana 30. The Katana 30 was one of last years best selling models, justifiably so - it was beautifully made and turned in a superb performance.

The Angel 30 doesn't drop the baton in any department. The build quality really is the best you'll find as is the hardware, undercarriage, spinner etc. while our initial test flights have revealed a performance that looks to be better than the Katana 30 too. We'll have a full review very soon in RCM&E.
