State Of The Art Components.
Take a look at the Butterfly and you'll see what you are paying for. The Beautifully constructed airframe is a real work of art in of itself. Study it's construction and you'll be in awe. Add to it a Carbon Fiber Propeller, Swiss engineered gearbox, and tiny 4mm coreless motor - wow, I guess that's why this is the most expensive paper airplane you have ever seen eh? It's top quality produce!
Lightest R/C Receiver
The World's Lightest manufactured RC airplane needed the world's lightest R/C receiver, and that's what you get with the ready to fly Butterfly. As lightweight as it is, it still comes packed with good features, like Plantraco's Bahoma magnetic battery holder system - you can connect your cell to the airplane in about 1 second. flashing LED light and audible tones let you know the status of the receiver in operation - it's a purely digital reliable radio link in this no compromises airplane.
Innovative Actuator for control surfaces
The HingeAct magnetic actuator weighs only 0.22 grams, but is powerful enough to control the Butterfly with authority. The simple design is the key to it's success. It is a self centering actuator, and gives you an amazing 64 steps of full proportional resolution. Why? Because we can!

Ready To Fly set with everything you need - just add 4AA batteries for the transmitter.

Aiframe has all components installed - the model is trimmed and ready to fly out of the box - every Carbon Butterfly has a check-out flight before shipping - so you can be sure it's going to fly nicely when you receive it.

Superior handling characteristics - reliable stable handling.

HFX900 Transmitter, LP20 Battery, all packed in a metal carrying case. Nothing More to Buy.

Good for flying in any room 12' X 16' will fly with only 30% throttle. Good thrust to weight ratio (about 0.9). landing gear allows ROG and landings on a coffee table, very little "runway" is needed for takeoff.

Can do loops if desired, but it's more of a relaxing cruiser in the livingroom that's leaves everyone awestruck.

Zoom In

If you want a true livingroom flyer - something that you can fly over the coffee table - something that is the best that you can get - get the Carbon Butterfly.

It's nice and quiet, flies very slowly and with great precision, and it weighs less than a sheet of paper!

Plantraco's original Butterfly is the closest in performance - otherwise this plane really has no peers. It's something special - a showpiece of engineering and art. In fact the airframe was designed by Robert Guillot, a gifted sculptor and general practitioner of art. The Carbon Butterfly is not really for flying outdoors - it's meant to fly super slowly indoors. Slow flight speed is very desirable when we are flying in a small room and this is accomplished on this model by the ultra low weight design and elite components.
