Min Contender EP Almost Ready-to-Fly Sport Plane

Mini Contender EP

The compact classic!

The original Top Flite Contender made its debut over 40 years ago. Thousands of pilots have honed their skills flying this classic aerobat. An ultra-thick airfoil allows an ultra-wide flight envelope, so it’s just as adept at slow and steady flight as it is wild, full-throttle aerobatics.

  • All-wood construction, factory-covered in MonoKote film.
  • One-piece wing minimizes assembly time.
  • Performs well using economical electronics.

magnetic battery hatch
A magnetically-attached hatch – located on top of the fuselage – makes it easy to change battery packs.
one-piece wing
A one-piece wing reduces assembly time. Prehinged ailerons, which each have their own servos, allow precise control during demanding aerobatics – as well as flaperon mixing.
4-view - MonoKote covering
A factory-applied MonoKote trim scheme minimizes assembly, adding striking looks that recall the original Contender.
ABS cowl and steerable nose gear
The ABS cowl adds signature Contender looks, while steerable nose gear provides superior ground handling.
