first look - 14/5/12
Due in the UK early June, this, E-flite's first RTF (ready-to-fly) ultra-micro EDF jet spans 16" (412mm), is Spektrum based and uses the AS3X auto stabilisation system.
It's a four-channel, near-scale model with thrust from a 28mm ducted fan driven by a 11750Kv BL180 motor. A 2S 200mAh Li-Po battery provides the power - this along with the charger are included in the box.
The machine is as sweet in the flesh as the early signs have suggested and although fitted with fixed undercarriage, the wheels (including a steerable nose leg) can be removed easily if a hand launch is preferred.
Ready to be bound to any Spektrum DMS2 or DSMX radio, it's due early june with an RRP of £119.99. Look out for the RCM&E review very soon.
