E-Flite Valiant™ 1.3m BnF Basic


Nice new release from E-Flite

Valiant 1.3 BNF Basic

Overview

The Valiant™ 1.3m park flyer is a downsized version of the big Hangar 9® Valiant 30cc ARF. Like its giant-scale sibling, it has the inherent stability of a classic high-wing model but with more modern lines and larger control surfaces that can provide sporty response when you want it. This Plug-N-Play® version comes with the motor, ESC and servos installed. All you need to do is finish some final assembly, install the receiver, charge a battery and fly.

Versatile Performance and Functional Flaps
Some days you just want to unwind with some touch and gos. Others, you want to push the limits with aerobatics. The model’s light wing loading, functional flaps and powerful brushless motor give you a big performance envelope to play with so, mild or wild, you can do it all.

High-Output Brushless Power System
The high-output power system delivers thrilling performance when matched with a 2200mAh 3S 11.1V 30C LiPo battery. You can use a wide variety of other 3S battery sizes too. The big, easy-to-access battery compartment can accommodate everything from 1300mAh to 3000mAh packs.

Optional Float Set Available Separately
The model is designed to accept an optional float set. Installation takes just a few minutes and all the necessary hardware is included.

Was lucky enough to be offered the new E-Flight Valiant 1.3mt foamy that has Safe + the now usual AS3X to help when the wind picks up! The foam was the good smooth stuff we have come to expect and the plane went together easy with all parts just slotting into place. So sit back and enjoy the un-boxing followed by the Build. Again many thanks to modelflight.com.au for the loan of the plane. Thanks for watching!

cheers Chuck

E-Flite Valiant 1.3 with Safe & AS3X Un-box & Build with ChuckT (10 min 48 sec)



Flew great, just like we have come to expect with a new release from E-Flite. It was a little windy but the AS3X helped smooth it out and when landing into a strong wind the flaps made it a little floaty, but i am sure on those windless days these flaps are going to add top the landings. A big thank you to Mike from modelflight.com.au for loaning me this new release. Hope you enjoy the Maiden Flight. Keep an eye out for the next video where we will look at all aspects of the safe side of the Rx Thanks for Watching

I wonder how this will compare to a scs2. If the price and performance is right, i could go for this one next. When does it come out?

These are on the water and should be shipping at the end of January. I think folks will be very surprised at the flight envelope of the Valiant.
