RCG Exclusive! MAMBA 10 PNP - New from FLEX!

Flex Innovations has a new design out by our very own Quique Somenzini! A bipe with great handling!!

Splash

The Mamba 10 is an aerobatic and 3D flyer that happens to be a bipe.

Quique Somenzini knows how to optimize biplane aerodynamics. He has won F3A and 3D world championships with his biplane designs.

The Mamba 10 structure is stiff and strong and light in weight. The plywood sub-structure keeps the motor secure while offering great mounting and cooling for the battery.

The Aura 8 Advanced Flight control system makes the Mamba 10 fly like a big bird and minimizes the effect of the wind. Pilots also love its ability to NOT feel "in the way."

This bird retails for $309.99 and is due out in late Spring.

The Mamba is licensed by Jim Kimbal Enterprises.

Sometimes you really do get what you pay for. If it flies anything like the way the Extra does, it will be worth the money.

Maybe we can work something out....

We have a little time to make arrangements.... great bird though. Has some more advanced capabilities than the Extra, but still quite friendly.

I have a lot of old planes as i haven't kept a plane for a few years now, i had to pay for my Flex Innavations Cessna 170 like everyone else as the reveiw plane had to go back to the dealer.

But! was such an awesome plane i had to buy one

Hoping i'll get a Mamba 10 to keep though as i would really like to add this one to my everyday squad
