The best choice for your first EDF jet model, the new E-flite Viper 70mm EDF is a high-performance EDF jet that delivers all the essentials including incredible speed, vertical performance and aerobatic capability while also being easy to take off and land.
The Viper has fighter-jet looks and performance with low-wing sport airplane stability so more pilots could enjoy flying a jet. It can deliver incredible speed, vertical performance and aerobatic capability–especially when it’s equipped with exclusive AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies.
At its core is a 6S-compatible brushless motor and 70-amp ESC that are matched to a 12-blade fan to deliver an abundance of speed and thrust. Functional, factory-installed flaps and electric retracts are included. With a one-piece wing and stabilizers that bolt into place, assembly is fast and simple–no glue required. The detailed cockpit is integrated with the large top-mounted hatch that makes battery access as easy and convenient as possible. Digital, metal-geared servos and ball-link equipped linkages provide precise control, and the lightweight yet strong EPO airframe adds to the durability and precision.
A little bit of PhotoShop “Afterburner” really lights up the Viper!
But what truly sets the Viper 70mm EDF apart, and helps make it the BEST choice for a first jet model, is how easy it is to take off, fly and land. It’s a scale jet that flies smooth and handles like a sport airplane, with stability that makes it feel rock-solid so all you have to do to make your jet pilot dreams come true is advance the throttle.
