E-flite Cherokee 51.5" BNF Basic with AS3X Stabilization - BNF - EFL5450

Another nice offering from E-flite that has the Flight Boys at Motion RC excited about is the E-flite Cherokee.  With its expansive flight envelope that supports stable, slow flight characteristics that favors pilots newer to the hobby thanks to the revolutionary stabilization technology AS3X® and SAFE® Select Flight Mode, the Cherokee also displays great aerobatic capability for those with more stick time under their belts.

The E-flite Cherokee celebrates the classic design of the legendary full-scale PA-28 with an accurate outline, a long list of scale details, modern-day convenience features, plus fantastic power and flight performance that makes flying fun.  An abundance of scale details including panel lines, rivets, corrugated control surfaces, a pilot figure and more highlight the authentic appearance, while functional features including factory-installed LED lights, a shock-absorbing nose strut and large wheels add to the flight experience.

The plug-in wing panels are equipped with a convenient hands-free servo connection system and include operational slotted flaps for shorter take offs and landings, plus improved slow-flight handling.  No glue is required for assembly of the lightweight, carbon-fiber reinforced EPO airframe so you can be flying in less time than it takes to charge a battery.  An extremely large top hatch offers easy access to the electronics and the battery mounting area with plenty of space to fit a 3S or 4S 2200–3200mAh battery, while the high-power brushless motor and 50-amp ESC deliver better-than-scale power.  It all adds up to a scale marvel that delivers incredible handling and fantastic flight performance for shooting smooth touch and goes, rock-solid low and high speed cruising, and even for performing aerobatics—all in a single model that you’ll be proud to own.

Features:

  • A scale replica of a modern general-aviation classic
  • Incredibly smooth flight performance making it the perfect choice for a first low-wing or scale model
  • High-power 3S and 4S compatible brushless motor and 50-amp ESC

  • Unmatched stability and precision of AS3X® technology for smoother flight performance

  • Functional shock-absorbing nose strut and large wheels for operation from a variety of surfaces

Excellent flyer

I bought this from my local hobby shop, I bought the BNF, I maidened this plane in 10-15 mph wind, It flew really good, just make sure you set the elevator to the proper setting marks on the fuse, That is critical. this is a Great flying plane.
