The Flex Innovations RV-8 10E PNP Electric Airplane is a great class 10 aircraft that offers stellar performance and great runtime. Flex Innovations took inspiration from the famous experimental Van's Aircraft RV-8. Made from durable EPO, this plane is equipped with the Aura 8 flight controller to give you an aircraft capable of both mild and wild maneuvers.

Airframe
Designed by World Champion, Quique Somenzini, the RV-8 10E is perfect for newer and expert pilots alike. Receiving power from a 6S LiPo battery, the RV-8 10E is an aircraft that tracks well, maneuvers on a dime, and has incredibly handling. From incredibly slow, flaps down cruising, to 3D maneuvers and faster sport and precision aerobatic flying, the RV-8 10E is a stunner that is ready to put on a show.

Aura 8
An Aura 8 Advanced Flight Control System (AFCS) is installed in the RV-8 10E 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 RV-8 10E Electric PNP Airplane (Green)
I have been building and flying RC airplanes since 1994. I have been buying and flying foamies since foamies have been a thing.
I am here to tell you that Flex Innovation’s planes (IMHO) are the very top of the line! The engineering,design and quality, coupled with amazing flying characteristics, makes these planes pure joy to set up and fly! The Aura8 again (IMHO) is the best flight controller on the market. It doesn’t fly the plane for you! But it does smooth it out and gives the pilot exceptionally precise control. Simply excellent!!
A Main Hobbies has quickly become one of my top online sources for my RC hobby needs. Super fast order processing and shipping, accompanied with the best customer service in the industry!
I remember when I could say that about another hobby company who will remain unnamed… (HH). A Main and Flex Innovations…
Top shelf all the way!
