The MIA Robo™ Trike, RC Microlight, while sophisticated in design, is an high performance, easy to fly and highly durable RC Microlight operated by weight-shift control via an animatronincs pilot figure arms connected to the wing control bar, this is called "Direct Control" set by MIA RC Microlight Design Standards.
This unique RC model is designed for electric-power and is based on modern-day “Strut-Braced” full scale microlight architecture, for simplicity and efficiency.
It is assembled, set up and flown, very much like the real thing, but in scale, via radio control, simpler and also much quicker.
The Kit comes with MIA's typical "Kit Contents Checklist", which ensures that the kit has been shipped complete.
Assembly and Tools
As typical of MIA Kit Products, this kit comes as a "Bolt-On Kit" and requires assembly with a small Phillips screwdriver. Build time depends on user skill, but should take you no more than an evening, if you are familiar with RC models and follow the Videos and Step by Step Instructions, provided with the kits. The assembly follows this sequence: Frame, LG, Seat, Wing Structure, Wing, Servos, Setup.
Technical Product Support
Should you have any questions, during the assembly and setup, Mario I. Arguello (MIA), the designer, is available for technical support via our Contact Us page.
This is an awesome! 52″ size model, suitable for flying outdoor, preferably in calm-weather. While the model can also be flown in indoor hangers or arenas, it will perform much better in an open un-obstructed area, where you can explore the control with ample room to correct any mistake, while learning to fly “weight-shift”.
Its exceptional performance is due to its light-weight design, construction and little power required to get going. The model will easily loop by re-locating the center of mass with respect to the wing center of pressure. It will perform tight turns and recover from stalls and pull-out from hard dives, with ease and precision, even at low altitude, provided the model is set up properly and according to the supplied instructions.
We have put together, an matched "High Efficiency Power and Control Electronics Package", we highly recommend you purchase with this model. It includes all the components required to power and control the model, so that it performs just as in all our videos.
The included pilot figure with animatronics arms and legs operated via matched servos from the electronics package and connected to the model control bar and front wheel steering, provides the model with added realism. The pilot arms and legs are activated in "elevon mix" via the Aileron and Elevator channel while steering is dne via the Rudder channel.
In order to fly this model, a programmable 4-6 channel transmitter with matching receiver and a 2S to 3S 800-1000 mAh Li-Pol battery and charger is required. This is typically supplied by the user.
