A seven-channel radio system is recommended, but the Mini Ellipse will operate on as few as four channels. Ballast can be added to gain more speed with the disadvantage of more weight.
The model can be bought as an electrical-version, too. The wings and V-tail are the same, the fuselage has the place for electrical motors. Model-weight for electrical versions is about 800 gramms, with state-of-the-art motorisation (brushless) and power-sources (LiPo) the mini-ellipse is a little hotliner.
