E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m

The DHC-6 Twin Otter was developed by de Havilland Canada in 1965. Designed as a rugged STOL (Short Liftoff and Landing) commuter airplane, the Twin Otter brought travelers and cargo into severe environments such as the sub-zero Antarctic and scorching North African desert. The line was shut down in 1988, after producing 844 airplane. Viking Air Limited purchased the Type Certificates for all out-of-production de Havilland airplane in 2005 and revealed the Viking Series 400 Twin Otter Production Program two years later on. By mid-2015 Viking provided 75 new airplane and re-established the Twin Otter as an effective commuter airliner — while almost 500 of the original airplane also remained in operation. The E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m is a scale reproduction that makes the ideal very first twin-powered model for intermediate to experienced RC pilots. It's flexible, easy to fly, and is equipped with practical features that include LED navigation and landing lights, flaps, and optional-use floats.

Twin Power

Twin Power
The factory-installed power systems feature high-power brushless outrunner motors equipped with three-blade counter-rotating propellers. The ESCs are wired so they can be powered with a single 3S 2200-3200mAh battery to deliver better-than-scale power and long flight times of up to 10+ minutes.

Versatile Equipment Options

Versatile Gear Options
Geared up with tricycle landing equipment that consists of a steerable nose wheel, the Twin Otter provides exceptional ground handling and can be flown from paved, lawn or dirt surface areas. You can also fly from water utilizing the included float set — it matches the trim scheme and features a water rudder for excellent steering control. Both equipment options are easy to install and can be swapped out in minutes.

Practical Functions

Functional Features
The realistic-looking LED landing and navigation lights are factory-installed and powered from the flight battery. Functional flaps use enhanced slow-flight ability and efficiency while also making it possible to take off and land in much shorter distances and at slower speeds.

Resilient Style

Durable Design
Building and construction with molded EPO material makes it possible to duplicate complicated information and shapes in a lightweight yet resilient type. The outcome is an exceptional scale look that's easy to preserve and provides the very best flight experience possible.

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Conclusion Level Benefit
Currently own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) airplane make entering into the air rapidly and with the very best control experience possible simpler than ever. They come out of package with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you require to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Synthetic Stabilization–3–aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The outcome is an increased sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a much larger, skillfully tuned aircraft.

If this is your very first model of its type, or you want an additional margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the plane, you can make it possible for the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope defense innovation constructed into the receiver. No programs is required. Simply change up the binding series as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope limits keep the plane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also avoid extreme climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling
The plane quickly goes back to and holds level flight when the sticks are launched and in the center position. It's also valuable for keeping the wings level throughout takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Project- No Shows Required
The basic treatment for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programs and takes simply a couple of seconds.

If you do not want to make it possible for the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver generally and it will work like a basic AS3X receiver.

 Great looking Plane
By Dallis D on March 1, 2020   Verified Purchase

Assembly was fairly easy. Good instructions. I installed the floats and have not flown it yet unfortunately. Great looking scale plane.
