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.

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!

Very easy to build and very easy to fly. This plane is a bargain at its price and the Aura works exactly as advertised.

This aircraft is very good. If it had a motor, it could possibly fly. I received the plane about a month ago and did an inventory as soon as I opened the box. After reading the manual, I discovered that the motor was missing. Initially, the indication was that the motor was pre-installed. After reading further, I found that I was supposed to install the motor that was included in the box separately. I went through the box and all packaging material at least 3 times. NO MOTOR. I contacted Amain Hobbies and after a couple of emails back and forth, Amain indicated they would credit my method of payment $85.00 so that I could purchase the correct motor from Flex Innovations. I placed the order with Flex and received the motor. It has been over 3 weeks since Amain indicated that they would credit my method of payment $85.00. Nothing. Also, Amain Hobbies has ignored at least 3 emails that I have sent in the last 2 weeks. The one star is for Amain Hobbies, the plane gets a 5 star.
