This is the E-Flite Valiant 1.3m BNF Basic park flyer from E-Flite. The Valiant 1.3m park flyer is a downsized version of the big Hangar 9 Valiant 30cc ARF. Much like its giant-scale sibling, it has the inherent stability of a classic high-wing model but with more modern lines and larger control surfaces that can provide sporty response when you want it. This Bind-N-Fly version comes with the added benefit of a Spektrum AS3X receiver that features optional SAFE Select technology.
Versatile Performance and Functional Flaps
Some days you just want to unwind with some touch and go's. Others, you want to push the limits with intense 3D aerobatics. The model's light wing loading, functional flaps, and powerful brushless motor give you a large performance envelope to play around with so, mild or wild, you can do it all!
High-Output Brushless Power System
The high-output power system delivers thrilling performance when patched with a 2200mAh 3S 11.1V 30C LiPo battery. You can use a wide variety of other 3S battery sizes too. The big, easy-to-access battery compartment is capable of hold everything from 1300mAh to 3000mAh packs.
Optional Float Set Available Separately
This model is designed to accept an optional float set. Installation takes just a few minutes and all the necessary hardware is included.
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 and 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, just change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.
With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:
If you don't want to enable SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver. You can even fine-tune its AS3X settings if you have the Spektrum programming interface and a compatible programming cable (both available separately).
