The Flex Innovations Cessna 170 G2 60E Super PNP Electric Airplane is an officially licensed plane that offers something incredible for everyone. This style of plane is designed to have an incredible balanced airframe to suite all flying styles. At first glance, it is a forgiving aircraft with rough field capabilities. Upon further inspection you will find it is capable of wild 3D aerobatics to gentle touch and goes. The Cessna 170 60E G2 is the go-to, all around perfect airplane for maximum fun and minimal hassle.

Airframe
This G2 model builds on the extremely popular Flex Innovations Cessna 170 60E. Improvements were made to the airframe to take the Cessna 170 60E G2 to the next level! Flex Innovations equipped this model with a powerful Potenza 60L motor for incredible performance. The motor is then paired to the Potenza 100A ESC for super smooth throttle response and reliability. Optional floats are available giving this plane an extremely wide flight envelope.

Aura 8
An Aura 8 Advanced Flight Control System (AFCS) is installed in the Cessna 170 G2 60E with no additional programming required. The Aura 8 AFCS is a highly refined 3-axis gyro that makes the aircraft fly like its bigger and flying in less wind. Due to its advanced implementation, it is unobtrusive, feeling like there is nothing in the way of the pilot!

Flex Innovations Cessna 170 G2 60E Super PNP Electric Airplane (Maroon)
I love my Flex Innovations RV-8e 60, It's one of my best flyers, so I thought to try the Flex Cessna 170.

I was very disappointed when it arrived. The color was not red or maroon, it was a brownish color. The paint was not even, with light and dark spots. The battery compartment and the wing sockets had massive amounts of over-spray. There was also light overspray on the side of the fuselage, under a clear part of the decal, so it would be very difficult to clean up. They must not have masked much at all. The access port to the Aura 8 was sealed with paint, which had to be cut away with a hobby knife, and some sort of glue.

I was willing to repaint the Cessna because the RV-8 flew so well, until my wife spotted the crack in the fuselage. This was on the top side, just in front of the rudder. It went from side to side, it was about 3 inches long, and had been painted over at the factory.

This plane has no where near the quality of the RV-8, or any E-Flight, FMS or most any other foamies I can think of. Fortunately, A-Main Hobbies stood behind their product and sent me a return label and refunded me my costs. I guess Flex needs a new supplier for the Cessna 170.
