Not just a cargo plane replica

Cargo Plane Replica

How many times have you seen a cargo plane perform 3D aerobatics? The E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane is just such an aircraft. With robust twin motors and featuring 3S and 4S compatible power systems, you’ll find the twin 5-blade custom counter-rotating props will give this scale RC cargo plane a flight envelope that will surprise you. Take off and land from a number of different surfaces including snow using the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane’s optional use ski’s, or, the water with a set of optional floats that are sold separately. A range of features help set this RC plane apart including a functional cargo door, factory-installed LED lights, and, a full range of US military forces decal markings.

Giving the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane all the power you can handle are twin brushless outrunner motors with durable ESCs and counter-rotating custom five-blade propellers. When coupled with a 3200-6400mAh 3S LiPo you will get superb flight performance. You can ramp it up to 4S if you want unlimited vertical capability and even the power to hover without the need to install upgrades! Eight servos have been factory installed throughout the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane with one to work your functional cargo door for those times when you need to drop a payload off. You can also fly this RC cargo plane morning, noon and night with a scale detailed LED lighting system that has navigation, landing and simulated strobe lights that are all powered using the flight battery.

Uniquely capable and versatile RC plane

The E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane is also set up to capture aerial footage with a removable magnetically secured nose cone. Once removed you can install a GoPro or similar to capture aerial HD footage. You can also go with an FPV camera option by using a separate mount built into the large top hatch. Please note that all cameras and associated gear are sold separately.

E-Flite EC-1500 Cargo RC Plane

The E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane has functional flaps that travel in both directions. By installing the included joiners in one of two different ways you can choose how large the flaps and ailerons are. With each surface being controlled by separate servos you can set up multiple wing configurations and mixing options. This is dependent on how many channels of the transmitter and receiver you use. One of your mixing options include full-span ailerons for increased roll rates and authority.

Fly SAFE with AS3X technology

If you own a Spektrum transmitter already then getting the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane airborne will be even easier.  With the servos, power system and 2.4GHz Spektrum receiver already installed it is simply a matter of binding the receiver to your transmitter and you are ready for supersonic take off!

The Spektrum DSMX receiver fitted in the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane features the AS3X (Artificial Stabilization 3 aXis) system that nullifies the effects of turbulence and wind by working behind the scenes to provide increased precision and stability when your RC plane experiences non-optimal flying conditions.

SAFE Select is optional technology that gives this model plane an extra margin of safety by enabling features that will ensure your flight envelope is limited to keep you out of trouble until you are a better flyer or have familiarized yourself with the controls. No programming is required to engage SAFE Select as it is built into the receiver. You just need to follow the manual directions and change up the binding sequence to switch it on.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

These will prevent you from excessive dive or climb angles as well as keep the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane from pitching or rolling upside down.

Automatic Self-Leveling

If you get yourself into any trouble you need only release the sticks and return them to the centre position on your transmitter and the E-flite® EC-1500 Twin RC cargo plane will return to and hold level flight. All you need to do is resume control once you are ready.

Easy Switch Assignment- No Programming Required

You can assign a switch on your transmitter to turn SAFE Select on and off in just a few seconds by following the simple procedures in the manual.

If you don’t need the flight envelope protection that SAFE Select provides then just bind the receiver as you normally would and you will just enjoy the features of the AS3X receiver on its own.

The E-flite® EC-1500 Twin features an all-new, ground-up design optimized for capability, versatility and FUN to deliver a flying experience you simply can’t get with any other airplane! It’s effectively many airplanes in one, with a wide flight envelope that includes slow and scale-like, to sport flying and even aggressive 3D aerobatic capability. The twin power systems feature brushless outrunner motors, robust ESCs, and custom five-blade counter-rotating propellers. This setup delivers excellent performance with a 3S 3200–6400mAh LiPo battery, or you can install a 4S battery for the power to hover and unlimited vertical capability — without modifications or upgrades! There are eight factory-installed servos, including one to operate the functional cargo door so you can carry and drop creative payloads from the large cargo bay. Realistic looking LED landing, navigation and simulated strobe lights are powered from the flight battery so you can fly from dawn until dusk — from paved, grass, or dirt surfaces; off snow using the included skis; or from large ponds or lakes using optional floats (sold separately). Remove the magnetically secured nose cone to install a GoPro® or similar camera for recording aerial HD footage, or mount a separate FPV camera on the large top hatch (cameras/gear sold separately). Plus you can use the included decals to customize the scale-inspired trim scheme with Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy and other markings to personalize your model. Uniquely Capable and Versatile: The EC-1500's unique, ground-breaking design makes it capable of slow and scale-like flying, sport flying, and even aggressive 3D aerobatics — all in the same flight! And with numerous landing gear, cargo carrying, camera mounting and other options to choose from, it's incredibly versatile, too. Wing Configuration Options: The functional flaps can travel both ways, and you can choose how large the flaps and ailerons are by installing the included joiners in one of two different ways. Because each surface is controlled by a separate servo, multiple wing configuration and mixing options are available (depending on the number of channels of the receiver and transmitter you use) including full-span ailerons that can deliver substantially increased roll authority and rates. 3S and 4S Compatible: The factory-installed power systems feature high-power brushless outrunner motors, robust ESCs and custom five-blade counter-rotating propellers that combine with a 3S 3200–6400mAh LiPo battery to deliver excellent power and performance. Or you can install a 4S battery for plenty of power to hover and for unlimited vertical capability without the need for any modifications or upgrades. Functional Cargo Door: The operational, servo-controlled cargo door has a 2.5 x 4.2 inch (65 x 107 mm) opening and almost 140 cubic inches of cargo bay volume (cargo bay is 2.5 x 4.2 x 12.7 inches / 65 x 107 x 323 mm). It can be used to carry and airdrop everything from parachute men to candy and other creative payloads. Capable Control: There are eight factory-installed servos total, including metal-geared servos on all of the control surfaces and the functional cargo door. There are also ball-link equipped linkages plus pocket or CA hinges on the control surfaces for precise control and long-lasting durability. The steerable nose wheel has its own servo, and a separate switching BEC provides consistent and reliable control system performance. LED Lights: Realistic-looking LED landing, navigation and simulated strobe lights are factory-installed and powered from the flight battery. Versatile Gear Options: The EC-1500 can be flown from paved, grass and dirt surfaces, or from snow with the included optional-use skis. You can also install the optional float set (EFLA550; sold separately) using the included mounting hardware to fly from large ponds and lakes. Easy Assembly: No glue is required for final assembly, and you can have the EC-1500 ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery! The two-piece wing with an innovative hands-free connection system can easily be removed for convenient storage and transport using the thumbscrews, so no tools are required for field assembly/disassembly.
