How to Order



The TufFlight Enduro is an extremely durable tailless craft, capable of many extreme aerobatics often performed by profile stunt ships.

To our knowledge, it is the only plane to routinely survive repeated flat spins to touchdown on the runway with immediate takeoff capability.  We call this the "roto-landing." (click to see video)

Generous side and rudder areas produce outstanding knife edge moves, spins and ground handling. The wide gear stance is very forgiving, and allows for ground stunts in crosswinds.

Designed to fly great with an "el cheapo" weak .40 engine, it will make you really smile with something even "hotter."

While the Enduro .40 is not a trainer, a flyer who has mastered the flight characteristics of a typical .40 size high wing trainer aircraft may easily upgrade to an Enduro by installing the standard servos and engine already owned, and enjoy performance not possible previously. Learn to fly on a trainer, but graduate to an Enduro for durability to survive "unplanned landings," yet aerobatic capability that will please expert flyers.

Use your transmitter's mixer for elevons, or a 5th servo and "Y" harness for dual ailerons and split elevator control. Also, a strong rudder servo is recommended for increased yaw authority.

TufFlight's Enduro .40 sets a new standard for "no fear" fun flying.
