TORO 900 (a model to get crazy with) is the new version of the very popular and in record numbers produced Toro 300. The model was redesigned for the installation of the AC motors and LiPol accumulators. By adding a small fuselage pod the wing centre section was further stiffened and at the same time a safe compartment for the LiPol accumulator batteries was created. This way the battery change is much more comfortable than with the original version.
The model is remarkable by its fine flying qualities - it could be flown almost anywhere and thanks to its expanded (foam) polypropylene (EPP) structure it is virtually indestructible.
Its structure is very simple and the surface finish makes it an eye catcher. It is suitable also for an inexperienced pilot and the assembly (or rather just the installation of the RC equipment) is easiest possible - everybody can do it.
description of available versions
The models are made both for the AC and for the DC motors. They differ mainly in the attachment of the powerplant.
The kits slated for the DC power are already fitted with the complete propulsion unit with the class 280 or 300 motor. For the beginners the less powerful motor of the 280 class is the more suitable one.
There is also a choice available of either a standard or an ARF version. The ARF one has all control horns and control rod guide tubes already glued in place, the grooves for servo and receiver antenna cables cut out, the control rods already pre-bent to shape and the fins having the already attached reinforcing glass tape already attached. To finish the model it suffices to glue together the wing halves, to glue the reinforced fins on the wing-tips and to insertand eventually glue the components of the RC equipment into the pre-cut openings and grooves.

Hitec 55 (9g) servos, JETI Rex 5 MPD (8 g) receiver, JETI Eco 12 (14 g) controller, 2xLiPol 1500 mAh accumulator battery (85 g), AXI 2208/26 SL motor, (45 g), Model Motors rubber ring driver plate, APC 8/6 propeller, G 2mm connectors.
The flight weight of the thusly-equipped model is 316 g.
List of parts in the kist:
The RAY economy power pack (suitable for Toro 900 and other models of our production).
Using the alternating current (AC) motors for the Toro costs today more or less the same as did the DC power a few years ago. The cost of a DC motor with a gearbox is similar to the cost of an AC powerplant, An AC motor, however, considerably exceeds the performance of the old DC powerplant. Also the prices of the controllers dropped fundamentally.
We sought such a motor, that would give a good performance with two cells and with three cells would start the adrenaline flowing in the most seasoned pilot.
Thanks to this economical and powerful propulsion unit, flying the Toro gets literally a new dimension. For a bargain price you can now fly a model with fantastic performance and excellent power.
Based on our tests we recommend:
The RAY CD 2830/09 motor with the RAY 18 controller
WE also suggest that you use a 8/6 propeller for the two-cell battery, the APC SF 7/6 proved itself best for the three-cell battery.
A word of warning!! As the three-cell arrangement draws about 15 Amps, we strongly recommend that you would not use propellers of increased diameter.
Also, choose the accumulators carefully, as they have to withstand with a reserve such currents!
The photograph shows the motor with the rubber band propeller driver/hub. We recommend strongly that you use it - it will save you many propellers. Our sets come as a standard complete with this hub and propeller.
