Lightweight construction and efficient aerodynamics make it possible for the E-flite Opterra 1.2m flying wing to deliver a wide range of capabilities that includes everything from sport flying and performing aerobatics, to soaring and beyond. It even gives you the ability to put yourself in the pilot's seat with optional FPV gear while also using a GoPro Session, RunCam HD or other similar class camera to record high-definition video at the same time (cameras and FPV gear sold separately).
The E-flite Opterra 1.2m flying wing is more compact than its 2.0m counterpart, yet it delivers added convenience, capability and flexibility through refined aerodynamics and an updated design that includes a number of great features. Its simplified three-piece airframe requires no tools or fasteners for assembly/disassembly with a convenient hands-free servo connection system and plug-in vertical fins. Enlarged elevons provide improved roll rate and control response, while a built-in keel with plastic cover makes launching easier and adds protection when landing. An improved motor mount design provides added durability and strength that’s perfectly matched to the brushless power system that’s compatible with 3S and 4S LiPo batteries right out of the box - no modifications or upgrades required. There are even channels moulded into the wings that allow for installation of optional LED light strips, plus the included standard and FPV camera noses can be swapped out without tools or fasteners.
SAFE Plus and FPV Equipped
The factory-installed camera provides an incredible First Person View while the 25/200/600mW adjustable power output video transmitter with interactive On-Screen Display (OSD) shows informative telemetry data in real-time such as altitude, ground speed, battery voltage and flight mode—even the distance and direction to the home/GPS-initialization point is shown while you fly (headset/monitor sold separately). There’s also a forward-facing station above the nose where you can mount a GoPro Session, RunCam HD or other similar camera to record your flight in high-definition video.
Advanced Aerodynamics and Lightweight Construction
Central to the aircraft's amazing capabilities are the advanced aerodynamics that shapes its design. In addition to an efficient airfoil, winglets and fins on the fuselage help the model track true in a variety of conditions. Vortex generators near the leading edge of the top of the wing, and just ahead of the elevons on the bottom, enhance slow speed stability and control. The airframe itself is constructed of carbon-fiber reinforced, hollow-core EPO material that keeps weight to a minimum while maintaining strength and rigidity.
Easy to Assemble and Transport
One of the model’s most impressive features is how easy it is to take anywhere you want it to go. Its plug-in wing panels feature hands-free servo connections and are secured without the need for tools or fasteners so assembly or disassembly can be done in almost no time at all.
3S and 4S Compatible Brushless Power System with Folding Prop
The high-power brushless power system provides great power for carrying camera payloads or performing sport aerobatics when using 3S LiPo batteries—or you can use a 4S battery for even more power and performance without the need for any modifications or upgrades. When you want to power off and grab a thermal, the folding prop reduces drag so you can glide longer.
Bind-N-Fly Basic with FPV
Bind-N-Fly (BNF) Basic aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the servos, power system and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed, so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible Spektrum transmitter, finish any final assembly and fly!
AS3X Receiver with Optional SAFE Select Technology
The airplane’s AS3X (Artificial Stabilization - 3-aXis) equipped receiver works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying a larger, expertly-tuned aircraft.
If you're a relatively new FPV pilot or want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can activate the optional SAFE Select technology built into the receiver for Pitch and Bank Angle Limits, Self-Leveling and optional-use Altitude Hold.
With Optional-Use SAFE Select technology, you get:
Pitch and Bank Angle Limits: These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.
Automatic Self-Leveling: Instantly returns the airplane to level when the sticks are released. During launch, you can use optional SAFE Select technology to keep the airplane level and in the perfect climb attitude until you get both hands back on the controls. If you are flying FPV with a headset, activating SAFE technology will allow you to relax and enjoy the view without worrying about trying to stay level or getting disoriented and losing control.
Altitude Hold: The airplane will maintain altitude by automatically adjusting the throttle and airspeed as needed.
Safe Plus Drone Technology:
AutoLand: When activated, the advanced AutoLand function puts the airplane on a stabilized approach and autonomously lands near the takeoff point.
Holding Pattern: Pause your flight anytime. The airplane will automatically return to a point near takeoff and circle until the command is canceled.
Virtual Fence: Optional-use Virtual Fence with various selectable settings keeps you from flying too far away. This prevents the airplane from flying outside the boundary.
