Extreme Flight 65" Turbo Duster

Extreme Flight is now shipping their newest Legacy Aviation Series creation - The Turbo Duster!

Inspired by the latest turbine crop dusters, the Turbo Duster is a great sport scale and aerobatic model from Legacy Aviation. It is constructed of premium balsa and ply and covered in genuine Oracover/Ultracote. The Turbo Duster Uses 6 medium metal-gear servos, such as the Hitec Hs-5245MG, and includes big double-hinged flaps for all sorts of mixing possibilities.

Paired with our Torque 4016-500 motor and Airboss80 ESC, the Duster has unlimited vertical power on 6S 3000-4000mah lipo batteries and 16x7 prop. NOTE: The Duster is designed for low-pitch props, 7" pitch and lower.

The Duster makes a great rugged and friendly sport model, it can fly a variety of conventional and 3D aerobatic maneuvers, and it loves making low passes like its full-scale crop duster relatives. A carbon wing tube, carbon landing gear, lightweight and strong airframe, easy handling, quick assembly, easy-access hatch, and a complete high-quality hardware set add up to a fun and rewarding model aircraft you will be proud to own.

If you want a truly flexible airplane, order the optional composite color-matched float set (Coming Soon!). Custom-designed for the Duster, our floats are light, strong, include a complete double water-rudder setup, and you change the model back-and-forth from land to water in under 5 minutes with just one hex driver. NOTE: The float set requires one additional mini servo to operate the water rudder.

Legacy Aviation 65" Turbo Duster (3 min 9 sec)

WOW! It looks like those huge flaps and ailerons can be mixed to create Quad Ailerons, Quad Flaperons, Crow Flaps, and all kinds of interesting flight modes. Stay tuned as there will be a formal product review of this Extreme Flight Turbo Duster this Spring. I'm planning to have one flying and floating at SEFF 2016 this Year, but I suggest you get your own on order now. Check out Extreme Flight's website for more information on the Turbo Duster.

I have seen all the EF planes and this was one of my favorites. I do have childhood memories of watching crop dusters do their thing in the skies over my part of the country. What a cool bird.

The flat spin was the tightest, and fastest I have seen in a video, period.

This includes 3d planes.

I want one and I am glad to see the final product made available.

Thanks Team Extreme!

I still watch them in my neck of the woods. They are all yellow and they dive right in after power wires and pull up steeply before surrounding roads. If I happen to be driving down the road I pray not to get sprayed if I happened to cross under their paths.

Ok I've got a serious problem. I need this plane. There are many of us who learned how to fly Rc planes using 3D planes only. Forgiving stable predictable and linear. Problem now is that I'm terrified to fly any non 3D, trainer type scale type plane. They have no throws., limited flight envelope. Ive never had to fight and loose to a plane that will stall, and fall out of the sky just cause I flew it past its envelope. From flying helicopters and directly to 3D type planes, having a scale plane that drops a wing and crashes cause the turn was too slow is something I'm scared to experience. In fact it's a difficult thing to explain to fellow flyers who see me fly then wonder why I tell them I can't test fly their trainer planes for them.

So before today, owning and flying a scale type plane with floats no less was just not going to happen. The confidence I would have in being able to wring this out with less fear of a silly stall, clean inverted, etc. Now we have a whole new class of planes that allow for confidently adding a traditional hobby experience. The 3D planes all start to look alike.

The Turbo Duster and coming Turbo Bushmaster are among the most gentle and easy to fly planes I've ever experienced, no bad habits. The fact that they are capable of flying most aerobatic maneuvers just adds to their appeal. I believe a lot of folks are going to be surprised this Spring when guys start showing up at the flying field with these things.
