The Nine Eagles Solo Pro 290 Lama Helicopter

The Nine Eagles Solo Pro 290 Lama Helicopter

The Nine Eagles Solo Pro 290 Lama from Tower Hobbies is a highly detailed, and ready to fly, replica of the Aérospatiale SA-315 Lama, a French utility helicopter for both civilian and military uses. Available in both a ready-to-fly and TR (Transmitter-Ready) version, great care was taken to recreate many of the full-scale features, such as the striking tubular frame, the fully articulated 3-blade rotor head, functioning LED lights, as well as additional fine details such as the fuel tank and turbine areas. A 3-blade tail rotor enhances scale looks, while also improving stability and handling. The Lama is test-flown and adjusted at the factory, and is ready to fly after charging the included li-po battery and installing some AA cells in the transmitter. Brushless power, combined with a collective-pitch rotor head and shaft driven tail rotor, also give it aerobatic capabilities. The 4-in-1 control unit combines a receiver and mixer with a 20A brushless ESC and stabilizing 3-axis gyro, while the 6-Channel 2.4GHz SLT™ computer radio has 10-model memory, a 5-point pitch curve, exponential, digital trims and adjustable gyro sensitivity. And since it’s an SLT system, it’s also compatible with all Tx-R aircraft.
Rotor Diameter: 17.7 in (450 mm)
Overall Length: 18 in (456 mm)
Weight: 16.6 oz (470 g)
Power System: main motor
RTF requires: 8 “AA” batteries
TR version requires: 6-channel 2.4GHz SLT radio system
