E-flite Maule M-7 1.5m - RCGroups News

The new Maule M-7 from E-flite captures the unique look of the full-scale STOL airplane. Let's take a quick look at the 1.5m version of the mighty Maule!

E-flite Maule M-7 1.5m

A Scale Rendition of the Unique Maule M-7

Packed full of scale details and features, the E-flite Maule M-7 is a scaled down version of the STOL aircraft with the distinct vertical stabilizer. The Maule M-7 is a very capable Short Takeoff and Landing taildragger with a rugged and utilitarian look. The E-flite version captures that look in rugged EPO construction with a 2-piece 59" wing that is fitted with functional flaps. Included with this ARF are floats, working LED lights, antennas, molded panel lines, rivets, and vortex generators.

The Maule M-7 is designed for 3s or 4s LiPo power in the 2200 to 3200mAh range. Also included in the BNF version is a Spektrum AR636 receiver, 15 sized brushless motor, 40A ESC, and seven 9G servos. The Maule M-7 is available as BNF with receiver, or PNP requiring a suitable 6+ receiver; both require a 6+ channel Spektrum transmitter. The M-7 has a retail price of $269.99 and is scheduled for release in late March 2018.

There's been no bad time to enter into the RC hobby, and E-Flite Hobby Horizon is proving that there has been no better time than now.

Yah know everytime a new plane is shown it sure would be nice to have a pic of an average 5'10" or so person holding it so we can get a
good perspective of size.

Hey, maybe that's one reason I've never had my ugly mug on a box, I make things look small by comparison!

Jim Weaver of the Portland Skyknights used to fly the most awesome Maule M5 Rocket I have ever seen at all the float flying events when I was growing up. He let me fly it one time and it was as capable as most of the fun fly planes of the day. I love the unique look of the Maule!

The bar has definitely been raised. Between the clipped wing and this, looks like my jets will have a slow summer, especially with this terrifically flying and beautiful bush plane; means way more flying opportunities for me. Great job, Eflite!!!

I really do like that they're listening. 4S-compatible out of the box and clear windows. I'm gonna preorder this one, I think.
