48" Wingspan E-flite Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus BNF Basic - EFL10950

MotionRC is quite pleased to present this hot new offering from E-flite. From his performance of the world's smallest loop to being the only air show pilot to combine aerobatics with motocross by flying his P2 Prometheus under a jumping motorcycle, Skip Stewart brings dare-devil creativity to precision aerobatics. Coined "High-Octane Aerobatics," Skip's performances offer an appetizing menu of stunts that blanket the horizon with mind-blowing agility at an energy level that packs airshows around the globe with cheering fans.

The E-flite Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus aircraft is for aerobatic pilots who want precision in an unlimited biplane with unique character. Based on the custom built P2 Prometheus airplane flown by Skip Stewart, Mike McConville adapted the unique design as a model with performance that's as inspirational as Skip's original. Exclusive Carbon-Z technology allows a healthy sized model such as this to be rigid like a conventional all-wood airframe, yet lightweight so it can have a larger performance envelope than any other biplane in its class. Durable Z-Foam™ material used in construction means that any bumps along the way are simple to repair. The Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus looks the part too with flame-laden graphics and control surfaces large enough to handle bold moves such as the Skip's signature high-alpha knife edge passes.

The Famous P2 Prometheus

Air show performances by Skip Stewart in his P2 Prometheus are enjoyed by aviation fans around the globe. The Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus biplane is capable of performing Skip's signature moves with power spare and the kind of control authority that's a pilot's dream.

Mike McConville Design

World-class aerobatic pilot, Mike McConville, worked closely with the full-size P2 design and adapted the unique biplane flown by Skip Stewart to deliver the perfect balance of performance, optimal power and strength.

Carbon-Z Technology

Exclusive Carbon-Z technology features composite construction that allows major components like the wing to be chambered, significantly reducing weight while increasing rigidity to comparable all-wood construction.

Brushless Power

Under the sleek cowl is a powerful 50-size brushless power system that features a high-torque 525Kv motor, a 70-amp brushless ESC and 15x5.5 propeller for the authority to hover and accelerate vertically.

High-Voltage System

With a 4500mAh - 5000mAh 6S 22.2V Li-Po battery you provide, expect extreme performance for high-alpha knife edge flight, vicious tumbles, Harrier moves and hover-power that provides unlimited vertical.

Easy Assembly

Each plug-in wing features carbon-fiber wing tube support that secures with a single screw. The aileron linkages simply snap into place and concealed through-pins quickly connect the I-struts into molded pockets.

Eflite Carbon-Z P2 Prometheus

The Prometheus is an awesome airplane. It has enormous power, it flies fantastic. It is definitely my favorite airplane of all time and I have had plenty of planes over the past 35 years of flying. My only problem with the Prometheus was the spinner. It was impossible to balance and gave the plane a bad vibration. I switched it out with a Dubro 4 pin 3 inch spinner, balanced the prop, and the vibration is gone.

Never have seen nor flew a rc model like the PROMETHETUS 2! Far ahead of its class in all aspects, bar none! I am speechless!!!!

Carbon Z Prometheus BNF

Nicely packaged. Fast shipping. No damage inside or out. Plane is beautiful. Make sure and take your time building it. Wings are a little tricky to get lined up, but they do line up with a little coaxing.

Great Plane!

Easy build once I figured out the top main spar needed to be shortened about 3/8". Fantastic aerobat...very solid performer. Tight fast spins that stop on a dime. Very easy to fly and land, just don't run out of energy too soon on landing.

A "Beast" of a plane!

Get this airborne and open the throttle. She roars and climbs. I definitely agree with the text on the product box that this one is for advanced pilots. A couple of problems with wing fit and the spinner causing vibrations, but nothing that the power and beauty of this plane can't overcome. Can't wait for the next opportunity to fly this!

Incredible Value

I am not a big foam fan but this one is changing my mind fast! Best $299 I ever spent, considering electronics alone. The rudder was slightly warped upon opening the box. Not Motion RC's fault at all. They made it right Within hours of notifying them. This thing flies better right out of the box than the Hanger 9 Christian Eagle ARF I spent Lots of $$ and time to make right.

Prometheus Biplane

Very quick shipping. Arrived in 100% condition, no damage. Went together quick with no problems. On top of that the plane flys great. Would recommend to anyone wanting a high performance acrobatic biplane... Can't be beat for the price!!!

PROMETHIUS P2

Can't ask for an easier plane to fly, this biplane flies awesome! 3D, airobatic, slow flight, inverted flight, endless vertical not to mention the 6ch AR636 with AS3X receiver that comes with it that makes it even easier to fly. An intermediate pilot should have no problem handling this aircraft. This plane is simply georgeous and the build couldn't have gone any easier. The only thing I noticed you might want to check out is the two rear servos, elevator and rudder servo mounts were loose, they didn't use much glue on them! EZ FIX! Still can't believe what you get for $300 and it comes with a $80 receiver! Keep up the good work China! And thanks to everyone at MOTION RC

Must Have for the Hanger

This BiPlane is a lot of fun. Take your time setting it up and aligning control surfaces correctly, then she'll fly great first time out. Max out those travels and it'll knife edge easily as well as hover etc. Does violent tumbles. Weak link is the gear design. Land it softly so you don't bend it, or order extra ones. (4 stars) I fly it everyday, and fun in the wind also!
