C-17 Globemaster III with Gyro RTF


I ordered this 373mm span C-17 a few weeks ago for the amazing price of $23 and I'm absolutely blown away by this very cool RC model. Unlike many variable thrust RC planes I've flown over the past 8 years, this C-17 is in a class by itself. It flies exceptionally well with gyro stability and minimal power required to cruise, in both beginner and advanced flight modes. Flight times are 10 -15 minutes and charge times are relatively short, depending on use. If you do crash, the model is made of spongy EPP foam and just bounces off whatever it hits and keeps going...with no damage seen to date. Another surprise has been the range of control at distances greater than 500ft. The model features a red LED light on the underside...solid red indicates fully charged and blinking indicates time to land.

Everywhere I've taken this C-17, people have been amazed and are literally ordering this plane via cell phone as I'm flying it. Great value, exceptional flying qualities and incredible reliability makes this C-17....a must own RC model!

I just watched a flight video of one after I read this and it looks like the climb/throttle is really responsive and turning is too but how would a gyro work on a plane like this? when it pitches down does it compensate with higher throttle input?

I've not noticed pitch correction with the gyro, though once the throttle is set, it maintain altitude very well. I do hear the motors changing speed to correct yaw in the breeze. Impressive for a $23 RC plane!

That looks surprisingly good in the air. I wouldn't have even considered it until I saw these. Wow!

It looks realistic from about 25 feet away and flies really well. Impressive for $23!
