While the Ultimate biplane made a historic impression with the
full-scale community, the RC aerobatic crowd turned the aerobatic
sensation into a blockbuster. Its revolutionary lines were unmistakable
and the exhilarating performance it offered created a generation of
aerobatic thrill seekers with a profound respect for airplanes with two
wings. With the modern benefits of Z-Foam™ material and
electric power clearly in mind, world-class designer and pilot Mike
McConville has revisited the Ultimate platform to deliver a park flyer
with everything the original had to offer, and more.
The E-flite® Ultimate2 biplane is the ideal choice for pilots
looking for the ultimate aerobatic experience. It’s a
brilliant Mike McConville design that’s a synergy of a
highly-tuned airframe and modern aerodynamics, all complemented by a
stunning trim scheme by Mirco Pecorari of Aircraft Studio Design. A
high power-to-weight ratio, plus high-quality components help deliver a
new biplane with an aggressive 3D flight personality. Four enormous
ailerons offer blinding roll speed while the massive elevator and
rudder surfaces can make spin and snap gyrations as wild looking as
they are predictable. The included AR636A receiver takes a great-flying
airframe to a whole new level of precision thanks to AS3X®
technology that’s been specially tuned for this model. If you
don’t quite pull off a maneuver, like a rolling harrier,
Panic Recovery mode adds a virtual safety net that can return the
Ultimate2 to upright flight.
All you need to start flying the Ultimate2 is a full-range 6+ channel
transmitter with Spektrum DSM2®/DSMX® technology, a
2200mAh 3S 25C 11.1V Li-Po flight battery and suitable charger.
Technology that makes Aerobatics More Satisfying
The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization –
3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel AR636A
receiver is what helps give the E-flite® Ultimate2 an
incredibly solid look and feel in the air. It works behind the scenes
to help counter the effects of wind and turbulence by combining 3-axis
sensing with specially tuned flight control software. As a result, a
highly-tuned design like the Ultimate2 is made even better because your
workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced. In addition to AS3X,
the Ultimate2 includes Panic Recovery mode, a feature of SAFE®
(Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that allows you to try new
maneuvers without worrying about losing your airplane. Just push the
panic button and the Ultimate2 will instantly return to level flight.
Panic Recovery Mode
Push and hold the Panic Recovery Button and the plane return all other
controls to their neutral position.
Tool-Free Field Assembly
With simple push-pin connections for the struts and one thumb screw in
each wing, putting the Ultimate2 together is a snap.
The installed Spektrum™ 6-channel receiver features
uncompromised DSMX® 2.4GHz control, the amazing flight
stability of AS3X® technology plus the SAFE® technology
virtual safety net of Panic Recovery.
Under the sleek cowl is a powerful 10-size brushless power system that
features the fast throttle response of 1250Kv wind and a 40-amp
3D-Size Control Surfaces
Four enormous ailerons, massive elevators and a huge rudder help you
enjoy instant response at even slow airspeeds. Vortex generators near
the leading edge also enhance 3D performance.
Exclusive Z-Foam material makes it possible to create a design
that’s lightweight and surprisingly durable. Any repairs are
simple to make with just about any fast-setting glue.
