The original F-27 models, like the Stryker, introduced thousands of RC pilots to the fun of flying a durable and high-performance aircraft that harnessed the advantages of a flying wing design, evolutionary materials, advanced electronics and modern aerodynamics. The E-flite® F-27 Evolution™ airplane marks the times by combining a proven design with modern updates, including a significant boost in power, removable wings and a sleek FPV option that have it destined to be a new favorite well into the future and beyond.
The E-flite® F-27 Evolution™ lets you use 3S or 4S LiPo batteries to rip through the skies like a jet at ballistic speeds of 105mph (up to 85mph on 3S), or to slow down and cruise with the low-speed predictability of a sport model, all in the same flight. The wide performance envelope also allows you enjoy everything from blinding roll rates and tight loops to using full up elevator for slow, high-alpha flying and to practically ‘elevator’ to the ground. Utilizing a highly refined airfoil, the F-27 Evolution also features oversized elevons driven by metal-geared servos and a lightweight yet durable EPO airframe that’s reinforced to provide both strength and agility. Plus, its updated three-piece design allows you to quickly break it down for transport and storage without the need for tools or fasteners. You can even put yourself in the pilot seat by replacing the stock twist-lock nose with an optional nose that contains an FPV camera and video transmitter (VTX) while blending perfectly with the sleek outline. So whether this is your first flying wing experience or the F-27 reunion you’ve been waiting for, the Evolution is sure to thrill like no other can, and at a value that simply can’t be beat.

- Ballistic Power: The robust brushless power system delivers great performance and speeds of up to 85mph when flown on a 3S LiPo battery, or you can install a 4S battery for outstanding acceleration, beyond unlimited vertical performance and straight-line speeds of 105mph.
- Three-Piece Airframe: At just under 40-inches in span, the F-27 Evolution is easy to keep together, or take apart for storage and transport that’s more compact than any flying wing it its class. The wings are supported by carbon fiber tubes and connect to the center section using a unique attachment system that secures them without the need for tools or fasteners.
- FPV Ready: The stock twist-lock attached nose can be quickly replaced with an optional nose (EFL5608 sold separately) containing an integrated FPV camera and video transmitter (VTX) that blends perfectly into the sleek outline and easily connects to the factory-installed wiring harness.
- AS3X Receiver with Optional SAFE Select Technology: This Bind-N-Fly® Basic model is equipped with an AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) receiver that 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 a larger and expertly tuned aircraft.
