Airbus A330

 

More than 1200 A330s have been built until now and this plane is still selling well. The A330-200 is a long-range aircraft and differs not only in fuselage length from the medium-range A330-300 but has also an enlarged vertical stabilizer.

The modelplane has phantastic flight characteristics. Due to its size the model flies stable and is absolutely easy to handle.
