E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m

The DHC-6 Twin Otter was developed by de Havilland Canada in 1965. Developed as a rugged STOL (Brief Take-Off and Landing) commuter aircraft, the Twin Otter carried travelers and cargo into harsh environments such as the sub-zero Antarctic and scorching North African desert. The line was closed down in 1988, after producing 844 aircraft. Viking Air Limited bought the Type Certificates for all out-of-production de Havilland aircraft in 2005 and announced the Viking Series 400 Twin Otter Production Program 2 years later on. By mid-2015 Viking delivered 75 brand-new aircraft and re-established the Twin Otter as an effective commuter airliner — while almost 500 of the original aircraft also stayed in operation. The E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m is a scale replica that makes the ideal very first twin-powered model for intermediate to knowledgeable RC pilots. It's flexible, easy to fly, and is outfitted with practical functions that consist of LED navigation and landing lights, flaps, and optional-use floats.

For RC pilots who desire an excellent very first (or next) twin model, there's no much better option than the E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m. It delivers amazing "bush airplane" scale looks and efficiency together with the intrinsic stability of a high-wing style. The practical size of the Twin Otter means you can transport it fully put together for flying at a wide array of areas with paved, lawn or packed dirt surface areas, such as large parks, sports fields and RC flying fields. Your adventures will not stop there, however — eliminate the tricycle landing gear, set up the offered drifts, and now you're prepared to fly off of large ponds and small lakes. Having 2 landing gear choices included in the box only means this model's incredible value. Together with molded-in panel lines, corrugated control surface areas and a scale-inspired trim scheme, the E-flite Twin Otter comes with many practical functions including functional flaps, LED navigation and landing lights, and props ended up with black and white stripes that look amazing whether spinning or standing still. The Twin Otter 1.2m provides a really unique flying experience that a wide range of pilots can enjoy.

Twin Power

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

Versatile Gear Options

Versatile Gear Options
Equipped with tricycle landing gear that includes a steerable nose wheel, the Twin Otter provides excellent 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 superb steering control. Both gear choices are easy to set up and can be switched out in minutes.

Practical Features

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

Resilient Style

Durable Design
Building with molded EPO product makes it possible to replicate complicated details and shapes in a light-weight yet durable type. The outcome is an exceptional scale appearance that's easy to preserve and delivers the very best flight experience possible.

SAFE technology

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

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver including AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3–aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the impacts of wind and turbulence. The outcome is an increased sense of stability and accuracy 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 desire an extra margin of security while familiarizing yourself with the aircraft, you can make it possible for the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection innovation constructed into the receiver. No shows is needed. Merely alter the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select allowed, you get:

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

Automatic Self-Leveling
The aircraft immediately returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It's also handy for keeping the wings level throughout takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Task- No Shows Required
The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off doesn't require any shows and takes just a couple of seconds.

If you do not want to make it possible for the SAFE Select functions, just bind the receiver usually and it will operate 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.
