Starship Enterprise RC Plane: Boldly Go Zip Around the Park

by Lambert Varias

Here’s your chance to be the Picard, Kirk or Janeway of your own USS Enterprise. It’s not a high tech starship, just a small remote-controlled plane, but let’s face it: if you suddenly found yourself on the NCC-1701-D, you and everyone in your crew might as well be wearing red shirts.

The plane was designed by RC enthusiast Dennis aka SGTalon. It’s made from foam and a glued-on skin. Dennis sells kits with all the ship’s parts and skin, but you’ll have to supply the other parts such as the rods and motor, and of course put them all together. The video below is a review of the kit courtesy of YouTuber joehandsome99. You can skip to about 3:05 to see it fly:

You can order the USS Enterprise RC kit from SGTalon for $22-$87 (USD). Not a Trekkie? Dennis also sells Cylon Raider and Imperial Destroyer kits.

    There are different kinds of Radio Controlled AirPlanes. rc fly like Dynam Hawksky with its brushless motor is the perfect trainer for beginners, who want an rc plane that they can learn on, but is also capable of impressive stunts The Dynam Super Cub PA-18 is ready to fly with all electronics pre-installed. Based on the Piper PA-18 Super Cub, this, 2.4GHz RC, 4 CH rc plane, looks great in the air and are suitable for beginners..Nitro Air Planes are light weight and durable.

    Hi Lambert,

    I just arrived to your site and I looked at this review, its amazing what they’ve done with the Starship Enterprise, looks like a very solid plane to me, you know, I really enjoy playing with these toys, I have an F-18 Jolly Rogers RC Airplane which is more like a Jet, that is the kind of airplanes I like the most, but looking at the one you have in this review is not that different.

    I bet this airplane is as good as a Jet one, it flies very soft and seems like you can do a lot of tricks with it.

    Very cool toy and Great Review!
    The video was funny and illustrative at the same time.

    Sir, my father and I want the Starship 1701. Except we have no clue where to begin. I have 4 choppers that came RTF. Could you assemble this for us all the way to rtf? Thank you Nate Garner304-400-7336.

    • Hey Nathan, first of all, if you check my article again you’ll realize that I’m not the one who makes or sells the RC kit, I just wrote about it. :) You’d be better off contacting SGTalon – the man who makes the kit – on his website.

      Also, I think he made it pretty clear on his site that he only sells UNASSEMBLED kits. But I guess there’s no harm in asking him if you can work out a deal for a fully assembled kit. Just ask nicely.:)
