E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m

The DHC-6 Twin Otter was developed by de Havilland Canada in 1965. Created as a rugged STOL (Brief Liftoff and Landing) commuter airplane, the Twin Otter carried travelers and cargo into extreme 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. By mid-2015 Viking provided 75 brand-new airplane and re-established the Twin Otter as a successful commuter airliner — while almost 500 of the original airplane also remained in operation. The E-flite® Twin Otter 1.2m is a scale replica that makes the perfect first twin-powered model for intermediate to knowledgeable RC pilots. It's versatile, simple to fly, and is outfitted 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 approximately 10+ minutes.

Versatile Equipment Options

Versatile Gear Options
Equipped with tricycle landing equipment that includes a steerable nose wheel, the Twin Otter provides outstanding ground handling and can be flown from paved, yard or dirt surfaces. You can also fly from water using the included float set — it matches the trim scheme and includes a water rudder for excellent steering control. Both equipment choices are simple to set up and can be switched out in minutes.

Functional Functions

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

Resilient Design

Durable Design
Construction with molded EPO product makes it possible to duplicate complicated information and shapes in a light-weight yet resilient form. The outcome is an impressive scale appearance that's simple to maintain and delivers 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 much easier 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, complete any final assembly, and fly!

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

If this is your first model of its type, or you desire an additional margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can allow the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope security technology built into the receiver. No programs is needed. Merely change up the binding series as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select allowed, you get:

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

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

Easy Switch Assignment- No Programs Required
The easy treatment for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off does not require any programs and takes just a few seconds.

If you don't wish to allow the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver typically and it will work like a standard 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.
