The Flex Design Team has incorporated valuable customer feedback and leveraged Flex Innovation’s relentless quest for the ultimate flying aircraft, resulting in the creation of the second-generation RV-8 60E. This latest model showcases a new level of performance and convenience, thanks to the addition of new features. Notable enhancements include an upgraded power system, updated Aura AFCS program, removable battery tray, fresh trim scheme, and the integration of traditional-style hinges on the tail control surfaces. Furthermore, the mould has been updated to significantly enhance the fit and finish of the foam parts!
Whether in the air or on the ground the RV-8 Super PNP from Flex Innovations demands attention. With its spectacular paint scheme, scale canopy, and lines that are bound to catch the eye, this is one RC plane that you’ll love flying.
Sporty and versatile
This night version of the RV-8 Super comes kitted out with an LED system that sets this giant scale plane apart. Internally mounted LED’s make the RV-8 glow from the inside out making night flying that much easier. There are two spotlights that shine back on the tail of the RV-8 that not only enhance night flying but dramatically highlight this RC planes brilliant scale lines against the black sky. Even if you’re mid-flight you turn the LED’s on or off from your transmitter for that ‘now you see them….now you don’t’ effect.
An advanced flight control system
For an electric RC plane the RV-8 Super has enough aerobatic manoeuvres in its repertoire to keep advanced flyers happy and with a finely tuned power to weight ratio it is friendly and predictable enough for beginners also. Included in the RV-8 Super package is the Aura 8 Advanced Flight Control System (A8AFCS). The A8AFCS offers a level of in-flight stabilization that is industry leading and gives the pilot precise aircraft control even in an RC plane of this size. Pre-programmed with 3 flight modes the A8AFCS caters for all levels of a flyer with – Low Rate/Gyro Off, Low Rate/Gyro On, and, High Rate/Live-Wing/Gyro On – to choose from. The A8AFCS only requires you to connect to your receiver and it will work with any receiver and transmitter brand on the market.
With a hollow structure and carbon fibre/plywood in critical locations the RV-8 can boast an advanced plywood sub-structure that allows the power system to be secured to the landing gear mount and the wing tube. This enables this RC plane to run smoothly even when you are applying high power. With an outer layer of EPO foam the exterior of the RV-8 Super is not only rugged and durable but also repairable in case you put it into the deck.
You also get the flexibility of options with your RV-8 – floats with LED lights for water takeoffs/landings, a keychain camera mount so in-flight footage can be captured, and, the LED light set up that makes night flying possible.
The RV-8 has hundreds of design variations but FreeStyle and World F3A Champion, Quique Somenzini, has worked with Flex Innovations to make this RC plane as practical and simple as possible. You can have your RV-8 assembled within an hour and its practical design means it is easily transported, put together and pulled apart.
Not only does the RV-8 look good in the air but it also delivers the pilot a level of precision, power and stability that will have you singing its praises.
