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).

  • October 19, 2016  -  A 5 channel radio is required if SAFE is not used.  A 6 channel radio will be required if you use SAFE.  Also, the Spektrum DX6i is NOT compatible with SAFE.  You can use a DX6i but you can’t use the SAFE feature with it.  This plane has SAFE select so you can turn it off and on.

E flite Timber

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

love this web site BUT!

A little disappointed with motion RC! I received my timber air plane to find i had NO screw to mount the wings. For $249 you should get all pieces and have a great product. product is great! NO parts though, i do have the umx timber plane love it!!!!!!! long story short a little unhappy about missing part and on top of that NO response to MY EMAIL. thank John

Disappointing

The SAFE technology does not seem to be working correctly.When in SAFE mode all control surfaces move as indicated except for the rudder. The rudder only works when controlled manually. I called the tech support line and the guy said I need to call Horizon Hobby.So much for customer support from rc motion. No TAX NO SHIPPING FEES BUT NO TECH SUPPORT!!!! The guy sounded like your typical hobby shop employee ,no interest in helping you and a worthless self outlook….

Great beginner plane for a great price. Be sure to buy plenty of spare batteries because you won't want to stop flying to recharge

WARNING! 2nd servo failure.. 7th flite today and I lost the right airleon servo.. On my 5th flite, it was my rudder servo..

Fun flyer to be sure and a good slow beginner aircraft.. Servo failure is a problem! I looked closely today after a crash due to a servo loss and noticed the 4 plastic covers on the underside of the wing rise when the wing servos operate.. That's resistance, and MAY be a factor in the servo failure issue... Also, there is no way to know if the servos are a REV type, or NORMAL.. They are not listed either way in the manual....
