Make the world your runway with the amazing Timber 1.5m BNF Basic park flyer. It comes equipped with an unbeatable combination of features that let everyone from newer pilots to expert sticks enjoy a versatile, sport-flying experience unlike any other.

Sport Aerobatics, Off-Field Adventure, Float Plane Fun-It Does it All
If you've been looking for a great, all-around park flyer that's up for anything, and can be flown almost anywhere, this is it. Its innovative design combines the spirited performance of a sport plane with the versatility of a bush plane so you really can have it all.

Tundra-Style Landing Gear or EDO-Style Floats-Both are Included!
Thick grass, gravel paths, local ponds, dirt trails-you can fly off these and many other surfaces that would be impossible for most models this size to handle. The Tundra-style landing gear features functional shock absorbers and oversized tires that soak up the bumps of rough surfaces and provide excellent prop clearance when flying off grass. The included float set matches the trim scheme of the airplane and features dual rudders for superb steering control.

Whichever option you choose to fly with, both are easy to install and can be swapped out in minutes.

STOL (Short Takeoff and Landing) Capabilities and an Abundance of Power
The Timber wing is designed with STOL features like wing-tip droops, optional leading edge slats and functional flaps. These, along with the model's powerful brushless motor and lightweight, Z-Foam™ construction, allow it to spring into the air or float down and land in as little as two feet or less.

Brilliant LED Light System
Out of the box, the model comes with realistic-looking nav lights, landing lights, wing-tip strobes and beacons, all installed and powered off the flight battery.

Durable Z-Foam™ Material with Hollow-Core Construction
Its lightweight, hollow-core construction is a big reason the Timber park flyer has such a wide range of capabilities. But don't let the light weight worry you. It's built using proven Z-Foam material that's tough enough to handle just about anything back-country flying can throw at it.

AS3X® Receiver with Optional SAFE® Select Technology
By changing up the binding sequence, newer RC pilots can activate SAFE technology features like self-leveling and angle limits that are built into the receiver. This will allow them to get a feel for the plane's impressive capabilities without feeling like they're in over their head, especially when flying in the wind. As with any SAFE system, they can assign a transmitter switch to turn the SAFE features on and off as needed.

Pilots who don't want to activate SAFE® technology can bind the receiver normally and it will behave like a standard AS3X receiver. They can even fine-tune the receiver's AS3X settings if they have the free Spektrum programming interface and a compatible programming cable (both available separately).

E-flite Timber BNF Basic Electric Airplane (1500mm)
This is probably the most versatile plane on the market. It’s capable of being aerobatic with decent rolls and easy inverted flight. The easiest and most forgiving plane I have ever seen on landings. Despite the large wingspan this plane can be flown in and out of the smallest of areas. Floats are awesome as I live on the water, there is very little noticeable difference in the flight characteristics with the floats on. Still very capable of inverted flight with the floats on. Unbelievable flight envelope. You can burn holes in the sky or drop the flaps and add the wing slats to make this thing crawl. The most impressive attribute i’ve found is the exceptional handling in wind despite the large wing loading. No need to stay inside with a 13-15 mph wind with the as3x. She will take it all day and still be plenty manageable. I’d recommend this plane only to people who have experience having a good time. I get more impressed with every battery pack I go through.

This is an amazing plane perfect choice for a first 4 channel airplane. It's awesome to be able to switch in and out of safe mode in a pinch, and the short takeoff and landing capabilities are awesome. It is plenty powerful for mild acrobatics and nice stable slow flight capabilities. I have been averaging about a 9min flight time per battery, And it is definitely durable as I have abused it quite a bit.

This is a fine product and good value for the price. I really enjoy the overall "FLight Test" approach to the hobby. I enjoy the videos and think all the folks are doing a great job of promoting the hobby and building enthusiasm. I built a Flight Test Cub as my first foam board build and really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to building more! Good work folks!

Just got this model in the other day. I like the way the airplane is constructed but I had a small problem with one of the servos. After working on it for a while I was able to correct the problem. I haven't had a chance to fly it yet but after making all the adjustments I'm sure it will do just fine.
