E-flite Timber 61" BNF Basic with Floats and AS3X Stabilization - BNF - EFL5250

The Flight Guys at Motion RC are really excited about this new plane from E-flite.  Make the world your runway with the amazing Timber™ 1.5m BNF® Basic park flyer. It comes equipped with an unbeatable combination of features that let everyone from newer pilots to expert sticks enjoy a versatile, sport-flying experience unlike any other.  This plane comes loaded with great features we have outlined for you below:

1) Amazing lights - The EFlite Timber has some of the best lights in the business.  The strobes look amazing and they are, without a doubt, some of the best lights in the industry.  The lights and strobes are daylight bright.  The plane has navigation lights, landing lights, beacons and wing-tip strobes all of which are brighter and more realistic compared to just about any foam RC plane on the market. We don't say this lightly. These lights are amazing!

2) Flight time - The plane was designed to fit a wide range of batteries. A 3S 2200 mAh Li-Po will give you about 8 minutes of flight time while a a 3S 3300 mAh will provide about 12 minutes of flight time.

3) Flaps included - Not always standard, flaps are always a welcomed amenity to most planes.

4) Floats and tundra tires both included - We fly a lot of float planes from lakes but we also fly off long grass. The E-flite Timber will handle both settings like a champ.

5) Leading edge slats included - How cool is that?  You can turn the Timber from a great flying, decently aerobatic plane to a STOL (short takeoff and landing) by installing the included leading edge slats.  Easy to install.

6) Plenty of power - This plane has the same power system as the E-Flite Ultimate2 3D plane and it only weighs a few extra ounces.  

7) Shock absorbing landing gear (when tires are used).  The design is spectacular and is perhaps the best shock absorbing landing gear we've ever seen on a plane in this class.

8) Dual steerable water rudders on the floats - Finally a seaplane that can maneuver!  A most welcomed addition in this class.

The E-Flite Timber includes AS3X and SAFE select. Pilots who don't want to activate SAFE technology can bind the receiver normally and it will behave like a standard AS3X receiver. The receiver's AS3X stabilization settings can be fine tuned with the optinal Spektrum programming cable and free app (both available separately).

Winter fun project

As usual shipping was outstanding, arrived without a dent. Well packaged. I am painting it first as a winter project, so have not flown it. I love flying it in the RC Simulator though, so much fun. I like the versatility, it's a single plane that does many things well.

Timber 1.5

Very nice plane easy to assemble. Very nice flyer! I hadn't flown in about 20 years and it was like I never stopped with this plane! Nice plane to learn on and knock off the rust when getting back into the hobby!

E-flight Timber is a winner!!!!

I'm actually pretty new to RC flying (about 1 year) and consider myself an pretty good intermediate pilot at this point, I live on a small lake and thought it would be fun to own a float plane so I wouldn't have to go to the field to fly in the evenings after work. The whole build took a little over 1 hour and I was ready to fly, this plane really isn't complicated and the overall quality is good. I've had this Timber for a few weeks now and am flying it all the time!!!! It's earned both my respect and love as my favorite of four to fly, I'm serious....this thing ROCKS flying both off the water and off land. It's nimble as heck and has plenty of power to get out of trouble. I'll also give props to MRC for their customer service both during and after the sale. I had a small problem with one of the floats when it arrived but MRC warrantied the part and it was on my desk in a couple of days.

E flite Timber

Great airplane. STOL performance is fantastic. I preferred the flight characteristics without the leading edge slats.
