Overview

The E-flite® Pawnee Brave Night Flyer is a scale park flyer for the intermediate pilot who wants a nimble airplane that can be flown practically any time of day. Like a respectable crop duster should, this scale-inspired design packs plenty of power under the hood. Besides four-channel control and a steerable tail wheel, working NAV lights add a touch of realism that make getting up early for flights at dawn more than tempting. Even more vibrant is the hollow-core structure that’s been filled with a pushbutton controlled, LED lighting system so that it’s practically impossible to lose this model in the dark. In addition, finely-tuned AS3X® technology adds the kind of stability that makes dusting the ground low-and-slow pure joy.

The Scale Delight You Can Fly at Night

The agriculture business attracts a wide range of pilots all wanting to make screaming down on the deck and between power lines a seasonal job. Dedicated crop duster designs truly put the needs of the pilot in the forefront with features like protective cockpits and gobs of power to make tight turns safe. Happening upon a crop duster in action over a lush field of grain is equivalent to an impromptu air show complete with low passes and graceful arcing turns. The E-flite® Pawnee Brave Night Flyer model allows RC pilots to dart across the field just like the real thing, day or night.

In addition, finely-tuned AS3X® technology adds the kind of stability that makes dusting the ground low-and-slow pure joy. And if you want to slow down even further, you have the option to make the built-in flaps operational by simply adding two servos.

Technology that makes flying more satisfying

The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A receiver is what helps give the E-flite® Pawnee Brave Night Flyer an incredibly solid look and feel in the air. It works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing with specially tuned flight control software. As a result, a nimble crop-duster like the Pawnee Brave is made even better because your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced.

Internal LEDs

The hollow-core structure of the Z-Foam material has been filled with white LED lights. Just press the button inside the battery compartment and the entire airframe will brilliantly glow in the dark.

External NAV Lighting

Inspired by the full-scale, external navigation lights on the wing tips, plus the landing light recessed into the wing lead edge offer an addition sense of flight orientation.

Optional Flaps

You can add a higher level of scale performance by making the built-in flaps functional. All the hardware has been provided to suit the addition of two micro servos required.

E-flite lists it as available in October. I would have started the thread in scale but it can be flown at most parks. Mike H

I really need to put in a complaint. This is just killing me, this Pawnee looks great but there's also a new Radian, umx P3 Bipe, umx F16 plus all the others I still need to add to my collection. (Corsair, Mosquito, P51 etc). Plus I'd like to upgrade from my DX6i. Just can't handle it (nor can my wallet)...........

I'd rather be flying!

Oh, oh. Gotta have this one, along with the UMX F-16 & the UMX version of Skip Stewart's new P3!

I've got a serious soft-spot for the Pawnee. Back in the early 70's, I sometimes flagged for the guy my dad moonlighted for. He had a Pawnee & a Snipe Commander.
