Two New Planes from Flex

Flex Innovations introduces the NEW 6S Raw Power Series, featuring the Piraña Super PNP and the Mamba 10 G2 Super PNP! Everyone wants more power and more flight time for their 10-class aircraft, but performance enhancements have always been limited by the power system and the 3S (11.1V) Li-Po's they typically use. Going back to the drawing board, the Flex Innovations Team started over with a new idea: to use a totally redesigned power system, with a small, lightweight and inexpensive 6S (22.2V) 1500mAh Li-Po to totally revolutionize the performance of 10-class aircraft.

What does this mean for you? No more dreaming, you really do get it all! More Power. More Flight Time. And most importantly; More Fun!

  • Piraña Super PNP - $199.99
  • Mamba 10 G2 Super PNP - $329.99

Both aircraft are estimated to arrive in December this year (2020).

Flex has an introductory offer – Save $15/battery off of the regular retail price when you pre-order the Piraña or Mamba 10 G2 with up to 2 6S 1500mAh 40C Li-Pos.

Be sure to check out the website for all the details!

Yes, the Mamba 10 G2 comes with the Aura 8. The Piraña comes with the FT Aura 5 Lite.

I'll share my personal experience with the Mamba 10 G2 as far as flight times are concerned. Keep in mind that flight times vary greatly depending on personal flying style (I tend to be a little hard on packs). I used to fly the Mamba 10 G1 on a 3S 2200mAh for 3:10. The Mamba 10 G2 I fly for 4:20 on the stock 6S 1500mAh. Don't forget though, this is all while having about 40% more watts/power than the G1 on 3S.


You could also go up to an 1800 to get a little more flight time for about an ounce, but an 1800 is about the max size the G2 will take due to weight (CG).

FLEX planes fly great, but they need to pay a little better attention to quality control. I've had bad servos and a crooked tail on my Extra. Misaligned wing end spar on my RV8. I think I will try one of the new Mambas, but I have to figure out what plane in the hanger needs to go. ;-)

I'm in the same boat. They're local to me which helps, but my Night Cap232 has been a comedy of QC issues, had 2 servos replaced, LED controller, ESC & BEC, all went bad one after another, I've had 2 good flights on my Cap and now I don't trust it.

My Night QQ Extra G1 was great, but same thing with my V2, bad tail servo out of the box, LED issues. This is the company I want to truly support, but damn the quality out of box has left a lot to be desired.

That being said, I am a glutton for punishment I guess (their customer service makes up for some of it) and I'll be picking up a Piraña too.

The quality issues with servos at least, seem to be industry wide. The virus and flooding problems in China are toblame, I think. I have 6 of the Flex Innovations models and have very little problems with any of them.

Saw the announcement.

Read the power system details.

Looked through my spare Flex airframe parts...

... and a 6S Extra emerged!

Power system is a Dualsky ECO 2826-720kv, a YEP 60A ESC, CNHL 6S 1000 mAh lipos, APC 11x4.5 prop.

I did have to fabricate a motor mount / spacer as the bolt pattern on the Flex motor did not match the Dualsky.

Flew both my new 6S and old 4S versions back-to-back last weekend. The 6S one is Awesome. I get about the same flight time that I do with my 4S one - about 6 minutes (I fly 1500 mAH 4S packs). Flight envelope is the same , just that all maneuvers require less throttle.

Flex needs to release a 6S Extra.

Easy hand launch on the Piraña. Was that 3/4 throttle?
