This is an E-Flite Air Tractor 1.5m Bind-In-Fly Electric Airplane with AS3X and SAFE Select, an easy to fly scale replica of the versatile crop duster that makes it a great first scale or low-wing model. Founded in 1978, Texas-based Air Tractor is a leading manufacturer of aircraft built for agricultural, firefighting and other utility applications. Air Tractor aircraft can be found hard at work over fields and forests in more than 30 countries around the world. The AT-500 series of ag airplanes first flew in the U.S. on April 25th, 1986. Since then, it has grown into one of the world's most popular families of general aviation, single-turboprop driven aircraft used for crop dusting, firefighting and other applications.

Air Tractor ag and utility airplanes have earned a reputation for friendly handling, incredible capabilities and unmatched versatility. Those qualities carry over to this E-flite Air Tractor 1.5m scale replica to make it a perfect scale low-wing model for intermediate to experienced RC pilots. The specially-tuned motor and 3-blade prop are matched to a 50-amp ESC to provide fantastic scale and sport aerobatic flight performance with 3S 2200-3200mAh LiPo batteries, or you can install a 4S battery for more power and unlimited vertical without the need for any modifications or upgrades. Functional slotted flaps improve slow speed handling while also offering Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) capabilities. Robust landing gear and wheels with over-sized tires allow the Air Tractor to fly from paved, grass, dirt, gravel or other surfaces at any suitably-sized park or RC flying field. Add large ponds or small lakes to your possible flying sites by installing optional floats (EFL5261, sold separately) — or attach the optional scale-like skis (EFLA970, also sold separately) to take off from and land on snow. The factory-applied paint and decal finish provides excellent visibility along with striking scale looks that are accented by LED navigation, strobe and landing lights. The E-flite Air Tractor 1.5m delivers a unique flying experience that a wide range of pilots will enjoy, even if it's your first scale or low-wing model.

This replica is factory-finished in a high-visibility yellow and blue trim scheme with molded-in panel lines, rivets and other scale features. With these details the E-flite Air Tractor 1.5m model offers a superb scale appearance to match its performance.

E-flite Air Tractor 1.5m BNF Electric Airplane (1555mm)
Not great. Due to 1500mm wide wings, control response is very slow and not responsible. Also, due to short Main Wing and horizontal wing distance, elevator response is bit peeky and also un-stable. I love Clip Cub and also Love timber 1200 but this model is not recommended for entry model of low wind. I am not novis flyer. I once was a contest flyer though I am 72 now.

I'd rather see the FT Duster come back, kit and all. Some of us come to Flite Test specifically to have an alternative to the high dollar name brand stuff.

I mean, this Air Tractor is a beautiful bird. But if I come to the Flite Test stuff, I want a foam board builder's alternative to it.
