THE ULTIMATE ULTIMATE
With its apparent lines and exciting efficiency, the Ultimate biplane — in full-blown and in RC design type — has given pilots all over respect for the aerobatic abilities of an airplane with two wings. Gordon Cost built and flew the first 10 Dash "Ultimate" design in the mid 1980s and flew the 10-300 in the 1988 World Aerobatic Championships. E-flite® debuted the Ultimate2 in 2015, earning praise from RC pilots worldwide for its solid aerobatic efficiency and 3D abilities. With the Ultimate 3D, E-flite® has updated and upgraded that proven airframe to modern-day standards. Its new power system offers better 3S efficiency and BALLISTIC power with a 4S battery. Higher-torque and higher-speed metal-geared servos keep you securely in control with the extra power. It's also geared up with a 60-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC, and the BNF® Basic version is geared up with an AR637TA receiver that offers full-range telemetry including real-time battery voltage, current, temperature level and more – in addition to motor reversing for unique ground handling and other abilities – when using suitable transmitters.





Features

Updated and upgraded to offer improved scale and sport flying, precision aerobatic and all-out 3D abilities

Large control surfaces capable of severe tosses plus vortex generators to improve 3D efficiency

Specifically tuned motor suitable with 3S and FOUR batteries without the need for adjustments or upgrades

60-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC provides real-time battery voltage, temperature level and other information, plus reversing abilities, by means of suitable receivers and transmitters (7+ channel transmitter needed for reversing)

Spektrum AR637TA receiver with full-range telemetry and industry-leading DSMX® innovation

Easy to fly with ingenious and optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection

The unequaled stability and locked-in feel of exclusive AS3X® innovation

4 (4) factory-installed higher-torque, higher-speed, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages

Tool-free wing assembly with quick-release hardware for practical storage and transport

Lightweight yet resilient composite-reinforced, hollow-core EPO building

Factory-finished with an upgraded trim plan including brilliant graphics





GO MILD OR WILD!
Equipped with the current modern-day innovations and upgrades, the E-flite® Ultimate 3D biplane raises the bar for scale, sport and precision aerobatic flying — plus all-out 3D efficiency too! More powerful, faster metal-geared servos and ball-link equipped linkages deliver favorable, exact control while the diagonal hinge lines make it possible for the control surfaces to deflect to high angles for severe 3D abilities. The new power system, with a specially-tuned motor and prop, works with 3S AND with FOUR batteries to deliver extra power and unrestricted vertical capability — no adjustments needed. It also includes exclusive Smart Innovation by means of the Spektrum™ Avian™ 60-amp Smart ESC, and the BNF® Basic version is geared up with an AR637TA receiver that offers full-range telemetry including real-time battery voltage, current, temperature level and more to suitable transmitters. Plus, with 7+ channel transmitters, the optional-use motor reversing function adds unique ground handling and other distinct abilities. The composite-reinforced, hollow-core EPO building provides a lightweight however resilient airframe that's factory-finished in a striking, ready-to-admire trim plan. Most importantly you can have the Ultimate 3D flight-ready in less time than it takes to charge a battery since no glue is needed for last assembly, and installation/removal of the wings is tool-free for easy storage and transport. This makes it the most convenient and best option for nearly any pilot trying to find their first or next biplane!

Ultimate Capabilities

Ultimate Capabilities
Diagonal hinge lines make it possible to deflect every control surface area to high angles for exceptional control and severe 3D aerobatic capability. Vortex generators also improve the efficiency and handling general so you can fly as mild or as wild as you'd like — whether you choose scale, sport, precision aerobatic or all-out 3D flying.
 

Ultimate Power

Ultimate Power
The factory-installed brushless power system includes a 60-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC plus a specially-tuned motor and prop that deliver an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or extra power and unrestricted vertical efficiency with a 4S battery without the need for any adjustments or upgrades.
 





Ultimate Sturdiness

Ultimate Durability
Composite-reinforced, hollow-core building with EPO product provides a lightweight yet resilient airframe. The Ultimate 3D is also geared up with higher-torque, higher-speed, metal-geared servos and ball-link equipped linkages for included durability plus more favorable and exact control.
 

Ultimate Convenience

Ultimate Convenience
No glue is needed for last assembly, and you can have the Ultimate 3D ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. Although it's easily sized to fit completely put together in almost any vehicle, setup and elimination of the wings is tool-free for easy storage and transport. Pins easily secure the struts and thumbscrews secure the wings to the fuselage.
 





Smart Innovation

Smart Technology
The Ultimate 3D is geared up with a special Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC that can supply a range of real-time power system associated telemetry information including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more by means of suitable receivers (including the AR637TA) and Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/3 and 8 G2, the DX9, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly. It also includes optional-use motor reversing to offer unique ground handling and other abilities (7+ channel transmitter needed for reversing).
 

Bind-N-Fly Basic Completion Level Advantage

Bind-N-Fly® Basic Completion 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 need to do is bind the receiver to a suitable transmitter, finish any last assembly, and fly!
 





Exclusive Technologies

Exclusive Technologies

Exclusive Technologies
The Ultimate 3D is geared up with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select innovations. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the impacts of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it appear like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limitations in addition to automated self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't wish to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver typically and only AS3X will be active.
