The Flex Innovations Mamba 10 is a fantastic aerobatic and 3D flyer. Biplanes offer a unique challenge as every aspect of the design must be optimized, from the structure, to the aerodynamics, and control system. Only years of experience designing aircraft in this category can produce the Mamba 10's aggressive, yet forgiving characteristics. The Flex Innovations team has the ability to optimize all of these points.

Quique Somenzini knows how to optimize biplane aerodynamics like no other, having won F3A and 3D world championships with his biplane designs. A biplane with less coupling or better manners cannot be found.

The structure is highly optimized offering an aircraft that is stiff and strong, yet light in weight. Its plywood sub-structure keeps the motor secure while offering great mounting and cooling for the battery.

The Aura 8 Advanced Flight Control System brings out the best of every airframe. It makes the aircraft fly as if it is larger and more stable and minimizes the effect of the wind. Pilots also rave about its direct and non-interfering feeling, and its ability to NOT feel 'in the way'.

The Mamba is licensed by Jim Kimbal Enterprises.

Altogether it is an unbeatable performer in a compact park-flyer package

Plane and simple, it's a great plane! Gyro smooths out the windy buffeting air and does not get in the way of just flying. Like someone else said, it flies on rails. A critical stall and the gyro softens it to the point it is completely recoverable. This also means you can experiment with some crazy aerobatics and 3D without worrying about recovering!. It's not a safe mode recovery so you need to know where to move the sticks to recover, but it assists with smoothing out stalls to allow you to maintain control without issue. I'm a fan of Gyros on planes, especially when they compliment your flying instead of flying for you. I've flown 3s 2200mAh packets but can see using 3000mAh packs instead for a little more flight time (2200mAh gives about 5minutes of hard flying). If can easily fly slow and float, and it can also cruise pretty fast. Gear is plenty springy and sturdy, I've tested it the first handful of landings..... and don't need bending back. I liken it a bit to my Visionaire Night version, which is another great platform, but it's a biplane and I love biplanes. Easy build and setup. I setup the Crow aileron feature which is awesome for short field landings. The Aura flight controller feathers it in with throttle input. Flying mine on a FrSky receiver using SBUS output, smart port battery cell telemetry reader and T16 Jumper radio. With OpenTx I've flip the Sport and Fast 3D flight modes with a custom curve (stock Crow Expert settings in the Aura). Very happy, would buy it again!!

I have an Aura stabilizer installed and the plane is UNBELIEVABLE! Flies like it's on rails, great 3D action.
