OMP 55" Super Decathlon

FIVE STARS for Buddy RC as they were just GREAT to deal with! Shipping was FAST and the model arrived with ZERO DAMAGE ... always a plus! The OMP 55" Decathlon is built pretty darn well .. tight covering ..and very easy assembly with no issues. I opted for 4S/3300mah batteries with a VESS 12X6 wood propeller. The airplane is extremely light weight, which generally speaking is what one would want ... but not so much on this one ... which is why I opted for the heavier batteries. In my opinion .. and this is only my opinion of course! .. the heavier 4S/3300's made the plane "feel" more solid in the air. I also balanced right on the spar for CG. That was right on the money for SCALE type flying/aerobatics. Having a pretty short fuselage length .. short coupled .. it will not turn well on ailerons alone. Coordinated turns with aileron/rudder are the order of the day for nice looking turns. Aerobatic ability is as one would expect with a Decathlon! It performs all scale aerobatics with relative ease .. although .. slips and knife edges are tougher to do owing to that short fuselage which offers very little side area to hold a knife edge/slip. But, it can be done! Just takes some work on getting the precise amount of aileron/rudder mix on the sticks. Take off's and landings are very easy and arrow straight. However!, gotta get on that rudder immediately during take off to keep it pointed straight. It'll keep your left thumb honest! I do think the model would benefit by an additional 5" of wing though, which would make it 60". Again, just my opinion! The 4S/3300mah lipo's are delivering darn near 9 minute flights!, which is great. I'm 10 flights in on it and still playing with it's little quirks, none of which are bad by any means .. but .. it's a slightly different beast with that short length fuselage. But, that's the Decathlon! FIVE STARS as it delivers pretty much across the board. A slightly LARGER one would be even better though!

Surprisingly Light, Incredibly Agile

Excellent plane! Flies amazing. My only complaint is that if you manage to scrape the carbon/fiberglass with the back of your hand you are in for an itchy time. Other than that it is an amazing looking and flying plane! I highly recommend looking up the setup done by the Youtuber "Model AV8R"


Very well packed, the plane is put together very well.

The product was delivered in great shape the plane is well constructed and went together easily .The only thing would be to add the CG point and to instruct to open the air vents on the model in the manual.

OMP Hobby Super Decathlon


The OMP Hobby plane is an amazing aircraft that boasts a wing span of 55 inches and a light wing load, flying just as you'd expect it to. You can fly it like a trainer with the 2200-2600 3S battery and a 13X6 propeller. However, don't let that deceive you as this plane can also hang on its prop with the 4S 2200-2600 and 12X6.5 propeller with high rates and throws to the max. With the recommended Sunny Sky motor and Eolo Prop, you can hang on for a fun ride.

Equipped with aluminum landing gear and soft tires, this plane can take off from grassy surfaces without any trouble. You can take it anywhere and fly it with ease.

The OMP Hobby plane is available in two beautiful color schemes: Red, White, and Blue and White, Red, and Blue, both featuring Oracover film.

Please ensure to create vent holes in the bottom of the fuselage near the tail wheel.

Please note that due to rising shipping costs, there is a flat rate shipping fee of $20.00 for domestic orders.
