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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
