The E-flite Valiant 1.3m Bind-N-Fly Basic Electric Airplane is a smaller version of the big Hangar 9 Valiant 30cc ARF. Like its giant-scale sibling, it has the inherent stability of a classic high-wing model but with more modern lines and larger control surfaces that can provide sporty response when you want it. This Bind-N-Fly version comes with the added benefit of a Spektru AS3X receiver that features optional SAFE Select technology.

Versatile Performance and Functional Flaps
Some days you just want to unwind with some touch and gos. Others, you want to push the limits with aerobatics. The model’s light wing loading, functional flaps and powerful brushless motor give you a big performance envelope to play with so, mild or wild, you can do it all.

High-Output Brushless Power System
The high-output power system delivers thrilling performance when matched with a 2200mAh 3S 11.1V 30C LiPo battery. You can use a wide variety of other 3S battery sizes too. The big, easy-to-access battery compartment can accommodate everything from 1300mAh to 3000mAh packs.

Optional Float Set Available Separately
The model is designed to accept an optional float set. Installation takes just a few minutes and all the necessary hardware is included.

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 don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver. You can even fine-tune its AS3X settings if you have the Spektrum programming interface and a compatible programming cable (both available separately).

E-flite Valiant 1.3m Bind-N-Fly Basic Electric Airplane
This is pretty good plane, it flys really nice probably even better if I take the gyro stuff off. Got this for my son to learn on. Only real complaint I would have is the vertical stabilizer was hard to get it to fit other than that yeah I would recommend it.

This is great trainer with sporty tendencies with the safe mode off. Fast if you want, perfect cruising around the airfield at half throttle. I never feel out of control with this plane. Its a simple flip of a switch and its self stabilizing kicks in and your back to level flight. For the money you get an awesome Spektrum receiver worth $80 alone, ailerons, flaps and pretty beefy landing gear. The motor has plenty of power. The only cons I can think of is the battery cover feels flimsy and the foam is easily damaged, dings n dents. If this ever becomes a pile of foam, I will have 6 servos, a 480 motor, 40 amp esc and a great receiver to put in the next bird. Worth the money in my opinion.

I have been flying for well over ten years and this is one of the very best I have ever owned. It is well built and looks exceptional. This aircraft is a good purchase at even a higher price. You won't be sorry for your interest in tis airplane.

I bought this to use as a trainer. We have it buddy boxed and this thing flies great. No complaints and even the instructor makes comments on how well it flies. I am not disappointed.
