The ST model Discovery is all about learning to fly radio control model aircraft for the very first time. The Discovery has been totally designed with that aim in mind and has all the easy to build and easy to fly characteristics that the beginner needs. Whats more, the time between opening the box and being ready to fly is measured in minutes not hours!

The computer designed structure has been optimised to give the best combination of stable performance, docile handling and durability. With extensive experience in designing complex EPO moulded models with carbon fibre re-inforcement and injection moulded plastic, ST Model have created a modern masterpiece in trainer design. Much of the structure is hidden deep inside but can be seen in strong light conditions as the EPO moulding becomes more transparent. For you, the owner, that is kind of unimportant as it is all pre-built inside. All you will be doing is the final assembly with a few screws. Just four will have the airframe assembled and then two small grub screws need tightening up on the elevator and rudder servo pushrods. Thats it!!

When you are learning, the likelihood of a less than perfect landing has been thought about too. There is a heavy duty, sprung noseleg and tough aluminium undercarriage. That main undercarriage is screwed to a special plastic moulding incorporated, longitudinally inside the foam fuselage. The screws are designed to pull out rather than damaged the fuselage in a heavy arrival.

The semi-symmetrical, tapered wing with anti tip-stall, curved wing tips will give all the correct characteristics in both calm and windy conditions plus a docile stall. The ailerons are responsive yet progressive without giving over-control to panic a learner. In fact, the same kind of progressive response comes from the elevator too. The rudder and nose wheel are connected for positive direction control on the ground and smooth response in the air.

Thrust is courtesy of a powerful, outrunner style, brushless motor and a 30A brushless electronic speed controller (ESC). The propeller is an impact absorbing 10 x 5 that has been matched to the motor for high thrust and low current consumption. A 3 cell 2100mAh Li-po battery (not supplied) will give over 10 minutes of flight time under normal training conditions. There is room to fit a bigger capacity battery too if you want and it will have very little effect on the centre of gravity and handling. We recommend the Intellect 3S 2100mAh 20C battery.

As there is no gluing involved, replacement airframe parts can be fitted in seconds, should damage be incurred. They can be purchased from your local dealer. Keeping you in the air and enjoying model flying is a critical part of the design philosophy.

Once you have learnt to fly with the Discovery, there are many more exciting models in the ST range to tempt you!

Do you get a battery & charger in the bnf package ?
Asked by Nate Williams on 12th September 2016

This is an ARTF plane (not BNF), so no it doesn't include battery or charger.

Hi, I need to order the correct propeller for the Discovery ST. Please can you advise?
Asked by Ian on 19th November 2019

The correct one is : E-STM111G or try APCLP10050E for another option.

Asked by Tony on 4th June 2020

You could use for example OL-2567

Hi, does this come with radio gear?
Asked by Chris on 19th November 2020

No, this requires radio gear

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Hi, I’m buying this for my 10 yr old grandson. It said 4 channel system required. Is there additional things that I need that don’t come with the plane?. Best regards
Asked by Michelle Starrett on 15th December 2020

Yes, this is an ARTF model - it requires radio gear, battery and charger to complete.

If it's for a younger modeller, I'd suggest looking at our range of Ready to Fly models instead.  For example how about HBZ32000 - it would work out cheaper and ultimately better/easier to work with than this with the additional components?
