OVERVIEW

EFL10250 Carbon-Z-Splendor BNF Basic

Continuing with their quest to take electric flight ever forward E-flite is proud to introduce their latest dual purpose electric flyer, the outstanding Carbon-Z-Splendor BNF basic. Not only is this their largest Carbon-Z airplane to date with a generous wingspan of 1384mm (54.5inch), it is also the most technologically advanced.

Designed by F3A World Champion Quique Somenzini the Splendor features AS3X automated 3-axis stabilisation system for improved smoothness during aerobatic flight. It is also the first to feature Carbon-Z construction in the fuselage in addition to that used in the wings.
The power system has been tuned to the specific recommendations of Quique Somenzini himself and consists of a 60 amp Pro Switch Mode BEC brushless ESC designed to handle the high servo current demanded by the system, and a 50-size 525Kv brushless outrunner motor. The Spektrum AR635 receiver with built-in AS3X also features, assisting with the delivery of ultimate precision during F3A manoeuvres as well as artistic 3D and Freestyle flight. Digital mini-high-speed precision servos are also included and these provide quicker response time and crisper control throughout any and every style of flying.

Recommended power source is a 6S LiPo battery (EFLB32006S30 - sold separately). Coupled with the customised propeller the entire system achieves outstanding aerobatic performance.

With Quique’s customised power system, dual purpose design, Carbon-Z construction and AS3X technology the Carbon-Z Splendor is bound to excite electric flight enthusiasts looking for a model that can deliver the ultimate in aerobatic performance and introduce them to the fascinations of extreme 3D and Freestyle flight

What is Carbon-Z?
Carbon-Z is a unique construction method where carbon fibre reinforcements are used through out the high stress areas of the airframe resulting in material that is stronger than its balsa counterparts whilst keeping to a similar overall weight. The advanced foam outer cover is not affected by changes in temperature and always looks “brand new fresh”, equally in the event of minor dings to the surface of the foam, or in the event of a modest crash the foam is very easily repaired.

What is AS3X?
The AS3X system for airplanes is an exclusive electronic 3-axis stabilisation (AS3X) system that automatically monitors, corrects and enhances the movements of the flight control surfaces enabling the model to be flown more smoothly. This in turn results in a much tighter and smoother “feel” to the model in the air.

What is F3A?
F3A Precision Aerobatics is a discipline flown world wide to the sporting code of the Federation Aeronautique Internationale, the (FAI) is the world governing body for all air sports full-size and models alike.
