Ultimate

OVERVIEW

While the Ultimate biplane made a historic impression with the full-scale community, the RC aerobatic crowd turned the aerobatic sensation into a blockbuster. Its revolutionary lines were unmistakable and the exhilarating performance it offered created a generation of aerobatic thrill seekers with a profound respect for airplanes with two wings. With the modern benefits of Z-Foam™ material and electric power clearly in mind, world-class designer and pilot Mike McConville has revisited the Ultimate platform to deliver a park flyer with everything the original had to offer, and more.

The E-flite® Ultimate² biplane is the ideal choice for pilots looking for the ultimate aerobatic experience. It’s a brilliant Mike McConville design that’s a synergy of a highly tuned airframe and modern aerodynamics, all complemented by a stunning trim scheme by Mirco Pecorari of Aircraft Studio Design. A high power-to-weight ratio, plus high-quality components help deliver a new biplane with an aggressive 3D flight personality. Four enormous ailerons offer blinding roll speed while the massive elevator and rudder surfaces can make spin and snap gyrations as wild looking as they are predictable. The included AR636A receiver takes a great-flying airframe to a whole new level of precision thanks to AS3X™ technology that’s been specially tuned for this model. If you don’t quite pull off a manoeuvre, like a rolling harrier, Panic Recovery mode adds a virtual safety net that can return the Ultimate² to upright flight.

All you need to start flying the Ultimate² is a full-range 6+ channel transmitter with Spektrum DSMX® technology, a 2200mAh 3S 25C 11.1V LiPo flight battery (EFLB22003S30, recommended) and suitable charger—all sold separately.

Technology that makes Aerobatics More Satisfying
The advanced AS3X™ (Artificial Stabilisation – 3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A receiver is what helps give the E-flite® Ultimate² an incredibly solid look and feel in the air. It works behind the scenes to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis sensing with specially tuned flight control software. As a result, a highly tuned design like the Ultimate² is made even better because your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced. In addition to AS3X, the Ultimate² includes Panic Recovery mode, a feature of SAFE™ (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that allows you to try new manoeuvres without worrying about losing your airplane. Just push the panic button and the Ultimate² will instantly return to level
