E-flite PT-17 BNF Basic
 

Every WWII allied fighter ace got their start somewhere. Chances are, most started off in a PT-17. Simple, tough and made by the thousands, both the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy used the biplane for its admirable ability to help new pilots survive the basics and master the art of flight, all in the shortest amount of time possible. The E-flite® PT-17 1.1m electric park flyer replicates the most iconic trainer of WWII with exquisite detail and the kind of performance that makes scale flying the way it should be–simple, fun and without compromise.

The E-flite PT-17 1.1m has everything you could ask for in a classic biplane. First and foremost is the period-correct 7-cylinder dummy radial engine, complete with intricate ignition and exhaust details. The Navy-inspired trim scheme is highlighted with wing rib and fuselage frame work accented with accessory and paneling detail. Shock-absorbing action of the aluminum struts add functional authenticity you'll appreciate during touchdowns and rolling over grass. While it's easy to be overwhelmed by the scale complexity, getting this beauty in the air requires less effort than you might think. Field assembly features a quick-release wing mounting system, which means no tools are required. Even battery installation is simple through the large magnetic top hatch that accommodates a wide range of 3S LiPo batteries. Unlike the modestly equipped full-scale original, a 15-size brushless outrunner motor delivers ample thrust so you can perform sport aerobatics or just cruise the horizon with power to spare.

Video Overview

SAFE technology

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Technology

 

The model's AS3X (Artificial Stabilization – 3-aXis) receiver works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like you're flying an expertly tuned aircraft.

If you're a relatively new pilot or want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional SAFE Select technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select features enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

  • These keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles during takeoff and landing.

Automatic Self-Leveling

  • Instantly returns the wings to level when the sticks are released.

Easy Switch Assignment-No Programming Required

  • The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programming and takes just a few seconds.

U.S. Navy Inspired Replica

The vivid yellow trim scheme was inspired by the initial aircraft delivered to the U.S. Navy around 1942. Designated the N2S, it was identical to the PT-17 flown by the U.S. Army. Construction with durable EPO material makes it possible to replicate complex detail in a lightweight form. The result is an outstanding scale appearance that's easy to maintain and allows the most satisfying flight experience possible to shine through.

Outstanding Realism

Impressive scale details like an intricately molded dummy radial engine and functional detail like the shock absorbing landing gear make this PT-17 look as good as it performs. In addition, the steerable tailwheel is located in the scale position and a pilot figure sits in the solo cockpit.

Outstanding Realism

Fast Assembly

Out of the box, you only need to fasten six screws. At the field, no tools are needed to install the one-piece wings designed with a quick-release system that makes biplane assembly super simple.

Brushless Power System

The power system features a 15-size brushless, 850Kv outrunner and a 40-amp ESC that when combined with your 2200mAh 3S 25C Li-Po battery delivers outstanding thrust.

Shock-Absorbing Landing Gear

The shock-absorbing action of the aluminum struts coupled to concealed spring-steel wire combines with the large scale wheels to add functional authenticity you'll appreciate during touchdowns and while rolling over grass.
