How to Order



Do you have an old .40 laying around looking for a new life? The TufFlight Terminator lets you turn that tired old engine into a potent powerplant, because when it's mounted to a 3.5 lb plane -- look out!

Folks around the country are discovering how much fun is possible with a simple flying wing. The Terminator is new, exciting and allows care free flying on a budget. You'll never want to be without one.

Simple, sleek, and highly powered, this plane goes where you point it! Many aerobatic maneuvers can easily be performed. This is the perfect practice plane to fly loops, rolls and low level stunts. The fin/handle is a simple streamlined and very effective vertical stabilizer. There's no rudder to worry about.

The Terminator owes its heritage to our famous Predator, for it too shines as a combat plane. In the hands of a skilled pilot it makes a highly competitive weapon for the emerging "sport combat class," as it turns very well, yet it's fast, lightweight, and durable enough to survive nearly anything it hits.

Build it light, and set it up to fly wild or mild, as you desire. Our instructions show you how.

A plane as tough as it's namesake-- Arnold would be proud, and so will you!

Terminator Kit: $66 + S&H

Terminator Deluxe Kit: $75 + S&H

Install the Lost Model Alarm in your Terminator for even more care-free flying.

No Mixing transmitter? Consider using the compact Elevon Mixer for your Terminator to save weight instead of a Y harness and 4th servo for separate aileron/elevator control.


Actual Build Time : 3 Days

  • read instructions on lunch break
  • 3 hours to assemble and glue main airframe (follow with overnight cure)
  • 2 hours to install radio
  • 2 hours to cover
  • 1 hour to balance and install engine

if you're really motivated, combine last 3 steps into a single night, and you'll be airborne in 2 days!

If you're a super slow builder (like me), you'll still have difficulty taking any longer than a week to complete this plane. Any way you look at it, that's not a big investment for a plane you'll love to fly (without fear of crashing) for quite a long time to come.
