Before student pilots during WWII became hot-shot allied fighter jocks, they first needed a remarkably advanced trainer. The tough AT-6 gave them the ability to handle all the bad habits of a fighter and become well-disciplined with a high level of respect for their aircraft. Today, thousands of cherished AT-6’s still fly, even after serving beyond the trainer role. The E-flite® AT-6 1.5m airplane is a rare tribute to the unsung warbird and a chance to enjoy a beautiful flying scale model uninhibited by the flight envelope that bound the original.
Your enjoyment of the E-flite AT-6 1.5m starts right out of the box with an airframe beautifully finished in durable EPO foam. The structure of the lightweight components features composite reinforcement throughout to provide an outstanding blend of strength and flight performance. The one-piece wing harnesses the ailerons, sturdy electric retracts and the distinctive three-panel split-flaps without a web of wires. Instead, all servo leads are concealed into a hands-free connection system that makes aircraft assembly ultra-simple. Behind the radial engine and exhaust detail is a powerful brushless motor system that only requires a 3S LiPo battery. Plus, there’s ample room for a high-capacity pack under the pilot appointed magnetic canopy hatch so you can enjoy longer flight times. In the air, light wing loading and an abundant amount of thrust combine to deliver a warbird experience that’s as easy to handle as it is fun to fly. Whether it’s your first scale model or a special addition to your collection, this AT-6 is sure to be the easy-flying heavy-metal replica you’ve always wanted.
AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Technology
The model's AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) receiver works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying an expertly tuned aircraft.
If you're a relatively new pilot or want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional SAFE Select technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.
With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:
Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles during takeoff and landing.
Instantly returns the wings to level when the sticks are released.
Easy Switch Assignment-No Programming Required
The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programming and takes just a few seconds.
The trim scheme is inspired by a variant better known as an LT-6 flown by the "Mosquitos" squadron who performed dangerous surveillance to coordinate key missions throughout the Korean War.
The operational flap system replicates the distinctive full-scale, split-flap arrangement. The landing gear features scale wheels, strut covers, hinged doors and electric-retract action.
You don't have to touch any servo leads. An innovative hands-free servo connection system automatically plugs in the aileron, flap and retract connectors whenever you attach the wing.
Out of the box, basic assembly requires only two screws. At the field, the one-piece wing features a hands-free servo connection system and the security of four mounting screws. Easy access to your flight battery is through the large magnetic top hatch.
The power system features a strong 15-size brushless outrunner, 40-amp ESC and a scale 2-blade propeller that combine with your 2200–3200mAh 3S 30C Li-Po battery to deliver outstanding thrust.
Construction with durable EPO material makes it possible to replicate complex detail in a lightweight form. The result is an outstanding scale appearance that’s easy to maintain and allows the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.
