The E-flite Ultimate 3D Biplane BNF Basic Electric Airplane features unmistakable lines and delivers exhilarating performance — in full-scale and in RC model form. This aircraft has garnered respect from pilots around the world for its incredible aerobatic capabilities. Gordon Price built and flew the first 10 Dash "Ultimate" design in the mid 1980s and flew the 10-300 in the 1988 World Aerobatic Championships. E-flite debuted the Ultimate2 in 2015, earning praise from RC pilots worldwide for its solid aerobatic performance and 3D capabilities. With the Ultimate 3D, E-flite has updated and upgraded that proven airframe to modern-day standards.

Its power system offers better 3S performance and BALLISTIC power with a 4S battery. Higher-torque and higher-speed metal-geared servos keep you firmly in control with the extra power. It's also equipped with a 60-amp Spektrum Avian Smart ESC, and the BNFBasic version is equipped with an AR637TA receiver that offers full-range telemetry including real-time battery voltage, current, temperature and more – along with motor reversing for special ground handling and other capabilities – when using compatible transmitters.

The Ultimate 3D is an extremely fun plane to fly. It can do knife edge spins too!

E-flite Ultimate 3D Biplane BNF Basic Electric Airplane (950mm)
The worst plane I have ever flew. Really upset about spending $300 on this. There are so many better options out there. It's so unbalanced and required so many modifications just to keep it in the air for 2 minutes. Extremely unstable and cannot fly straight. I would recommend finding another kit if you want to get into 3D.
