THE ULTIMATE ULTIMATE
With its apparent lines and exhilarating efficiency, the Ultimate biplane — in full-blown and in RC design type — has given pilots everywhere respect for the aerobatic abilities of a plane with two wings. Gordon Rate developed and flew the very 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, making praise from RC pilots worldwide for its strong aerobatic efficiency and 3D abilities. With the Ultimate 3D, E-flite® has upgraded and updated that tested 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 additional power. It's likewise equipped with a 60-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC, and the BNF® Standard variation is equipped with an AR637TA receiver that offers full-range telemetry including real-time battery voltage, existing, temperature level and more – along with motor reversing for unique ground handling and other abilities – when using suitable transmitters.
