E-flite 70mm Viper Jet




LOVE the paint scheme on this new 70mm Viper Jet from E-flite! Available in both BNF and PNP

Features:
  • First high-performance EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) jet with SAFE Select technology
  • The best choice for a first EDF jet model because it’s easy to take off, fly and land
  • A scale jet model with incredibly smooth sport airplane handling and amazing aerobatic capability
  • 12-blade 70mm fan delivers excellent top speed and vertical performance plus turbine-like sound
  • Factory-installed high-power 6S compatible brushless motor and 70-amp ESC
  • Functional and installed flaps for shorter takeoffs and landings plus improved slow-flight performance
  • Fast and precise factory-installed digital, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages
  • Steerable nose wheel and electric retracts with sprung wire struts for operation from a variety of surfaces including grass
  • Spektrum™ 6-channel receiver with industry-leading DSMX® technology
  • Easy to fly and land with optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection
  • Unmatched stability and precision of AS3X® technology for smoother flight performance
  • No glue required for assembly and can be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery
  • Large and convenient top hatch with clear canopy, cockpit detail and pilot figure
  • Strong and easy to install/remove one-piece composite reinforced wing
  • Lightweight yet strong and durable EPO construction
  • Unique and highly-visible trim scheme by Aircraft Studio Design

Looks really nice. Aerobatic, reasonably fast and looks to slow down nice on landing. Think I'm going to order one.

A rebranded FMS SuperViper?. Specs seems to be the same between them.

I'm thinking that is the case but I'm fine with that. I prefer the colors on the Eflite version.

TDang looks good. I think I prefer blue angel since it’s the same wire struts. Though this has flaps and as3x receiver for only $20 more

Based on the cheesy-looking piano wire landing gear I would say yes but too bad it doesn't have nice shock-absorbing struts...

Yes, it is suitable for grass ops (because it has durable sprung wire struts ) and you can see a take off and landing on grass at the 2:00 mark in the video:

Also, for those that might be interested, a VERY limited quantity of the BNF Basic version is in stock and available to ship RIGHT NOW (but they'll likely sell out soon, so order right away if you want to get one before the next shipments arrive in September!):

Looks great. I watched the video
E-flite® Viper 70mm EDF PNP & BNF Basic (2 min 57 sec)
but was disappointed by the music. This plane is supposed to sound like a jet instead of a blow dryer. Why not let us hear it in the video?
