RC Warbird

Bind-N-Fly Advantage

If you own a Spektrum transmitter already then getting the E-flite® P-39 Airacobra 1.2m airborne will be even easier.  With the servos, power system and 2.4GHz Spektrum receiver already installed it is simply a matter of binding the receiver to your transmitter and you are ready for supersonic take off!

The Spektrum DSMX receiver fitted in the BNF E-flite® P-39 Airacobra 1.2m features the AS3X (Artificial Stabilization 3 aXis) system that nullifies the effects of turbulence and wind by working behind the scenes to provide increased precision and stability when your RC plane experiences non-optimal flying conditions.

SAFE Select is optional technology that gives the Airacobra warbird an extra margin of safety by enabling features that will ensure your flight envelope is limited to keep you out of trouble until you are a better flyer or have familiarized yourself with the controls. No programming is required to engage SAFE Select as it is built into the receiver. You just need to follow the manual directions and change up the binding sequence to switch it on.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

These will prevent you from excessive dive or climb angles as well as keep the P-39 Airacobra from pitching or rolling upside down.

Automatic Self-Leveling

If you get yourself into any trouble you need only release the sticks and return them to the centre position on your transmitter and the E-flite® P-39 Airacobra will return to and hold level flight. All you need to do is resume control once you are ready.

Easy Switch Assignment- No Programming Required

You can assign a switch on your transmitter to turn SAFE Select on and off in just a few seconds by following the simple procedures in the manual.

If you don’t need the flight envelope protection that SAFE Select provides then just bind the receiver as you normally would and you will just enjoy the features of the AS3X receiver on its own.
