E-Flight Announces New AT-6 1.5m RC Model

E-Flight has announced the upcoming release of an AT-6 1.5m RC model in both BNF Basic and PNP versions.

The model is touted as “a rare tribute” to the famous WW2 advanced trainer and “a chance to enjoy a beautiful flying scale model uninhibited by the flight envelope that bound the original.”

The E-Flite AT-6 reportedly includes functional flaps and retracts, an EPO foam airframe with composite reinforcement throughout, a hands-free connection system for “ultra-simple” assembly, and a powerful 3S LiPo battery-powered brushless motor system with “ample room for a high-capacity pack under the pilot appointed magnetic canopy hatch.” The model also includes an AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) receiver to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence resulting in “a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you’re flying an expertly tuned aircraft.”
