Product Information

E-Flite Turbo Timber Plane

E-flite has produced an RC plane that is possible for anyone from beginners through to experts to enjoy flying in the Turbo Timber 1.5m. This BNF model comes equipped with a level of features that provide the flyer with sport flying capabilities, STOL and high-powered flight runs. Equipped with an LED light system, functional slotted flaps, leading edge slats, oversized tundra wheels attached to shock absorbing landing gear, and, optional use float set means this RC plane is equipped with enough extras to keep most flyers happy.

Remote Control Plane

Further enhancing the 1.5m Turbo Timber are a 3-blade prop and spinner attached to a turboprop styled nose. You also have the option of being powered by a 3S or 4S system all of which is fitted to a stiffer EPO airframe that is both lightweight and can handle a rough landing or two. The six metal-geared servos fitted to the Timber also add to its tough reliability as well as giving the flyer an awesome combination of fun and performance.

More power and durability

The Turbo Timber is equipped with a 50A ESC that when combined with the finely tuned brushless motor and 3S power will give you plenty of power and thrust. Without the need for any upgrades, the ESC will also handle a 4S LiPo if you want to get super quick!

With six metal geared servos equipped throughout the Turbo Timber, you can be assured that in-flight functional movement will be reliable. Combined with a stiffer wing this reliability will also improve your roll rates and aileron authority. Airframe construction is made up of hollow-core EPO foam which gives you the lightweight durability that will enable you to get the most out of this remote control plane.

LED Lights

Configured with a scale detailed LED navigation, landing and strobe lighting array, the 1.5m Turbo Timber, like its predecessor, takes on an impressive realistic look that is all powered through the flight battery.

Versatile gear options

The Turbo Timber gives the flyer a couple of gear options. If you live near water you may want to fit the optional float set provides excellent steering control from the dual water rudders and is also in the same trim scheme as the main fuselage. If you’re land-bound then the oversized tundra style wheels are going to enable you to tackle a lot of different landing surfaces. You will be able to absorb the bumps of gravel paths, thick grass and dirt trails all the while enjoying good prop clearance. You can swap over between the two in as little as 10 minutes.

Short Take Off and Landing

The wing design of the Turbo Timber features functional slotted flaps, drooped wingtips, and, is able to accept leading edge slats as an option (included) to improve STOL and slow flight performance. In the space of two feet, you can have your Turbo Timber landed or airborne as this lightweight, high powered RC plane utilises all the features at your disposal.

Just bind and fly!

If you own a Spektrum transmitter already then getting the Turbo Timber 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’re away!

The Spektrum DSMX receiver fitted in the Turbo Timber 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. 

With the Turbo Timber you also have the option of engaging the SAFE Select technology. SAFE Select is a way of giving you 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 Turbo Timber from pitching or rolling upside down.

Automatic Self-Levelling

If you get into a spot of bother you need only release the sticks and return them to the centre position on your transmitter and the Turbo Timber will return to and hold level flight. You can also utilise this feature to keep wings level during STOL sequences.

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.
