Make the world your runway with the fantastic Timber™ 1.5m BNF® Basic park leaflet. It comes geared up with an unsurpassable mix of functions that let everybody from newer pilots to skilled sticks delight in a flexible, sport-flying experience unlike any other.
Sport Aerobatics, Off-Field Experience, Float Airplane Fun-It Does it All
If you have actually been searching for a fantastic, all-around park leaflet that's up for anything, and can be flown practically anywhere, this is it. Its innovative design integrates the spirited performance of a sport aircraft with the adaptability of a bush aircraft so you really can have it all.
Tundra-Style Landing Gear or EDO-Style Floats-Both are Included!
Thick lawn, gravel paths, regional ponds, dirt trails-you can fly off these and many other surfaces that would be impossible for the majority of designs this size to handle. The Tundra-style landing gear features practical shock absorbers and extra-large tires that soak up the bumps of rough surfaces and supply exceptional prop clearance when flying off lawn. The included float set matches the trim scheme of the plane and functions dual rudders for outstanding steering control.
Whichever choice you opt to fly with, both are simple to install and can be switched out in minutes.
STOL (Short Launch and Landing) Capabilities and an Abundance of Power
The Timber wing is created with STOL functions like wing-tip droops, optional leading edge slats and practical flaps. These, in addition to the design's effective brushless motor and light-weight, Z-Foam™ construction, allow it to spring into the air or drift down and land in just two feet or less.
Brilliant LED Light System
Out of package, the design includes realistic-looking nav lights, landing lights, wing-tip strobes and beacons, all installed and powered off the flight battery.
Durable Z-Foam™ Material with Hollow-Core Construction
Its light-weight, hollow-core construction is a huge reason the Timber park leaflet has such a large range of capabilities. However don't let the light weight fret you. It's built using proven Z-Foam material that is difficult enough to handle just about anything back-country flying can toss at it.
AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Technology
By altering the binding series, newer RC pilots can activate SAFE innovation functions like self-leveling and angle limitations that are built into the receiver. This will allow them to become a feel for the aircraft's outstanding capabilities without feeling like they're in over their head, especially when flying in the wind. Similar to any SAFE system, they can designate a transmitter switch to turn the SAFE functions on and off as needed.
Pilots who don't wish to activate SAFE® innovation can bind the receiver generally and it will act like a standard AS3X receiver. They can even tweak the receiver's AS3X settings if they have the complimentary Spektrum programming user interface and a compatible programming cable television (both readily available separately).

 Great Plane, Highly Recommend It
By Josh K on July 5, 2017   Verified Purchase

An amazing plane. Flies and glides well making it perfect for a beginner to advanced pilot that just wants to have an easy plane to fly. I enjoy the STOL capabilities as well, landing in just a few feet, taking off in less.
