THE ULTIMATE ULTIMATE
With its unmistakable lines and thrilling performance, the Ultimate biplane — in full-scale and in RC model kind — has given pilots everywhere respect for the aerobatic abilities of an aircraft with 2 wings. Gordon Price built and flew the very first 10 Dash "Ultimate" style in the mid 1980s and flew the 10-300 in the 1988 World Aerobatic Championships. E-flite® debuted the Ultimate2 in 2015, making praise from RC pilots worldwide for its solid aerobatic performance and 3D abilities. With the Ultimate 3D, E-flite® has updated and updated that proven airframe to modern-day standards. Its new power system provides much better 3S performance and BALLISTIC power with a 4S battery. Higher-torque and higher-speed metal-geared servos keep you strongly in control with the additional power. It's also equipped with a 60-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC, and the BNF® Basic version is equipped with an AR637TA receiver that provides full-range telemetry consisting of real-time battery voltage, existing, temperature and more – together with motor reversing for unique ground handling and other abilities – when using compatible transmitters.

The Ultimate 3D is equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select innovations. AS3X works behind the scenes to ravel the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it appear like you're flying a much bigger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select provides pitch and bank angle limitations together with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't want to make it possible for the SAFE Select functions, simply bind the receiver generally and just AS3X will be active.
