A Much More Capable Commander
A partnership between veteran RC aircraft designer David Payne and Airplane Studio Design creator Mirco Pecorari, the original Commander mPd® 1.4m blended timeless lines with modern impacts for a one-of-a-kind sport flying experience. It's now updated and upgraded for more power and better control, and to include the benefits of Smart innovation — making it more capable and fun to fly than before! The new brushless power system includes a 45-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart Lite ESC plus a specially-tuned motor to provide an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and endless vertical performance with a 4S battery. Control reaction, with more powerful, more accurate metal-geared servos, is so smooth and predictable that anyone moving up from a trainer will feel comfortable right away. The BNF® Fundamental version consists of an AR631 receiver to provide real-time telemetry information in addition to AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. With these advantages and more, the Commander mPd 1.4m is the ideal next step, initially low wing, or daily sport design for a wide variety of pilots!

Advanced Technology And A Timeless Look
David Payne and Mirco Pecorari drew from lots of full-scale and model air travel influences when developing the Commander mPd® 1.4m sport airplane. They desired it to stand out from the crowd while having the pilot-friendly flight characteristics of traditional sport airplanes. This updated and upgraded version is all that and more! Easy to remove, fly, and land, it's the ideal "next step" after a trainer. In the hands of experienced pilots, it's likewise capable of greater speeds and high-energy aerobatics. The three and four suitable brushless power system, combined with a light wing loading plus factory-installed metal-geared servos and flaps, offers the Commander mPd 1.4m a broad flight envelope. It's smooth and predictable, with power to spare for carrying out rolling circles, knife-edge flight, and beyond. While you fly, the unique Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart Lite ESC can provide a range of real-time power system related telemetry information including motor RPM, present, battery voltage and more – with Smart and non-Smart batteries – by means of suitable receivers (including the Bind-N-Fly® Fundamental version's AR631) and Spektrum AirWare™ geared up transmitters. The Bind-N-Fly® Fundamental version likewise provides the handling benefits of AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies. An ingenious Hands-Free Servo Connection System immediately plugs in the aileron and flap servo ports when you set up the two-piece wing with just 4 bolts. The Commander mPd 1.4m arrives factory-finished in a special Airplane Studio Design trim scheme and requires no glue for assembly. That means you can have it ready to fly in less time than it requires to charge a battery!





 




Exclusive Technologies
Exclusive Technologies
The BNF® Fundamental version is geared up with unique Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to provide a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much bigger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select provides pitch and bank angle limits in addition to automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't want to allow the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and just AS3X will be active.
