E-flite ICON A5 BNF Basic 1330mm (52") Wingspan - BNF - EFL5850

At Motion RC we offer our customers a diverse selection of seaplanes but none of them quite as unique as this exhilarating, incredibly fun and rewarding ICON A5 by E-flite.  Take to your local pond, lake or shore and unleash pure flying enjoyment.  The ICON A5 comes with removable landing gear so this aircraft is at home both by land and by sea.  This BNF (Bind-N-Fly) version comes with a receiver that also acts as a stabilizing gyro for an even more rock-solid, smooth flying experience not even phased by moderate winds. The guys at Motion RC highly recommend the optional nose light kit for an even better flying experience. 

Updated Icon A5 now with AS3X®

For those of you who remember the old Parkzone Icon A5, this is an updated version of that old plane. This new E-Flite version of the Icon A5 includes a new scale paint scheme, AS3X technology with panic recovery, an optional realistic nose light set, and SAFE select technology which can be enabled or disabled. Gone are the problems with the old Parkzone model (such as tail wag) due to subtle tweaks and AS3X 3 axis gyro technology. Additionally this model includes SAFE select which allows panic recovery with the push of a button should you get into trouble while flying. Lastly, this model does include SAFE flight envelope stabilization should you choose to turn it on. When turned on it will limit the bank of the plane to help someone new to water takeoffs and landings. 

Removable Landing Gear

If you prefer to takeoff and land on water, simply remove the landing gear. If you prefer to takeoff and land on grass, landing gear is included in the box. The wheels are perfect for pavement but not large enough for grass takeoff and landings.
