The CMPro Marathon is a beautifully finished aerobatic airplane with nice
and simple construction. It comes pre-covered in an eye-catching design,
you donít even need to spend any time for further decoration since all the
complicated painting is finished by the factory.
Featuring all balsa construction (fuselage, wings and tails), the
Marathon is light but extremely strong. The epoxy landing gear and
polystyrene wheel pants also contribute to minimize the weight but maximum
The Marathon gives superb flying performance because:
- Full-aileron design with two separate servo controls, efficiently
increases flying speed and makes the plane more responsive.
- Approx. 50% elevator in proportion. The elevator also uses two
separate servo controls in order to increase thrusts and secure
stability, such a design is not commonly used in models with the same
- Approx. 60% rudder in proportion. The 0.5mm linkage wire gives a
direct control of the rudder.
These features greatly enhance extreme performance, such as 3D
manoeuvre and hovering.
Assemble the Marathon
Because of the simple and neat construction, the Marathon is very easy to
Assembly is even fun if you are using a 20cc gas engine since the plane is
specially designed for this size of engine.
The fiberglass cowling is also designed for easy gas engine assembly and
help reducing heat.
The CMPro Marathon is combination of great looks and superb flying
performance. Anyone wish to try precision aerobatics without spending a
lot of time for building must not miss this beauty!
