See the world from a new perspective

Until recently we've been modifying aircraft for FPV purposes, but lately we've seen FPV specific aircraft hitting the market giving us more options. The Ranger EX is one of those. It's a huge 77" wingspan pusher plane that is designed with FPV as its sole purpose.

There are camera options galore so you can choose how you want to utilize it. The fuse is huge inside allowing you to connect large or multiple batteries to achieve long flight times. There are also mounting points for your video transmitters, and autopilot systems to round things out. Check out the Ranger EX at the Volantex RC Website and look for the RCG Review of the Ranger in the coming weeks.

  • Wingspan: 1980mm (77.9 in)
  • Overall Length: 1170mm (46 in)
