Flex Innovations Cessna 170 Night PNP

The folks at Flex have come out with another super cool night flyer. It looks cool and you know it flies great!


The Premier Aircraft Cessna 170 Night

Quique wrote us to say:

We are very excited about the night version of our Cessna 170! David and I just came back from China. We went to check production of the C-170 day and night version plus all the accessories. The C-170 and looks really good.

It was fun to do some night testing over a large river in China, David and I really had a ball with that. I will say that we had quite few curious people. We could not understand what they said but you could see it on their faces.

We are really looking forward to RCGroups users flying this airplane. We also tested the wing leading edge slat and they work beautifully. We should have them in stock by middle October.


The officially licensed Cessna 170 at its core is a forgiving general aviation aircraft with rough field capabilities. If desired, it also has the ability to offer a surprising level of aerobatic capability. It has a balanced air-frame design combined with the included Aura 8, today’s most Advanced Flight Control System, yielding an unmatched flying experience. The aircraft's extremely light, yet rigid air-frame will offer forgiving yet responsive flying characteristics. The Cessna 170 structure is hollow on the inside and has carbon fiber in key locations and the unique forward plywood structure secures the power system and makes it run very smooth, even at high power. Because it is EPO foam, it remains TOUGH and REPAIRABLE.


The Night Version has factory installed LED's and an LED controller for an awesome night flying experience. The fuselage, wing, and fin glow due to internally mounted LED's. The Stab is illuminated by LED's mounted on the fin. The Navigation lights remain, further adding to the effect. Float customers should note that all of the floats are night equipped and glow when coupled with the night Cessna - very cool!
