Very dissapointed. As I thought the safe select is a problem. Since there's 6 channels and they are all used on this plane the safe select is not on a switch. It's either bound on or off. Extremely annoyed. In would never have ordered it had I known I can't activate safe while in flight

No I have the plane and the instructions say either bind in safe or not. No assigning a switch

I would have loved a panic button...

Time to upgrade your Tx perhaps?

Even with more channels it's the same bind situation. Also the canopy doesn't fit great. Other than that it's really nice looking

Odd. Their flight video shows the ViperJet righting itself with the flick of a switch... many times. How could they change the way a standard AR636 receiver works? Makes no sense.

its no different from the other SAFE planes. You plug in the bind plug, you plug power to the rx. it flashes, you then remove the bind plug then you hold down bind button on the TX and it binds in Safe mode.. Then you would use the switch on the radio I use switch A on my DX6 Gen2 with my Clipped wing cub to switch from Safe out of safe mode on the Channel input config page I have 5:Gear set for A you can make it whatever switch you like to just make sure its got 100 and -100
page 8 Of the Manual explains this

EDIT: I just re watched the binding part of the Q &A video on facebook and they did say you do need a 7 channel to do everything.. I wonder if you could just leave the retracts alone and use it for Safe.
It does look like a pretty plane I love my F27 but having a plane with gear and flaps would be neat and with rudders

I'd rather leave off the flaps. Retracted gear looks so cool!

Did anyone else notice that the viper decal on the fuselage is upside down?

yeah, You could tape them in place I guess.

They said they be making more videos on Monday to show binding it to a DX6 and another radio,.. he said you might be able to make SAFE on with Flaps down.. good for landing or take off Not sure. it does stink that you can make all work separately on a 6 channel
