If this is the first time that you have read a review from me thank you for choosing my website.  I research plenty of information on the web for my reviews to provide an informed and unbiased opinion of a product.  I have been dabbling in electronics and RC for over twenty years.

The Top Race TR-C285 is a micro-sized RC airplane that has a wingspan of 15.7 inches.  The plane can either takeoff from the ground or be hand launched.  The plane is made out of EPP Foam which is quite bendable without breaking.   Complete Ready To Fly (RTF) package.

Flying The Top Race TR-C285

The Top Race TR-C285 flys for very well for its size.  Due to its small size, the aircraft can be launched from the hand and will give around twelve minutes of flying time.  The plane has three flight modes beginner, intermediate and advanced.  Most users have stated that it is best to bypass the beginner mode as it makes the aircraft slow and hard to turn and obviously advanced makes the plane even more nimble to fly.  It also has to be noted that a number of people have reported that Top Race’s customer service is excellent with troubleshooting help and replacement parts for the aircraft.
