Product Information

Following the recent upgrade to the XR61 iPAs set-up, Precision Aerobatics are excited to release the XR61-T! This highly popular model just got a new symmetrical (and amazing!) patriotic colour scheme and a tandem canopy! The T in the name stands for Tandem, for those who prefer the looks of the longer, larger canopy. The XR-61T maintains the same flight performance the XR-61 has to offer, plus greater side area forever better precision manoeuvres and knife-edge!

The sophisticated aerodynamic design, straight and true factory-build (incidence pre-set) and incredibly powerful set-up allow this plane to perform just like you hope for – be it precision flying or slow 3D!

When the XR-61T is powered by a powerful rear-mounted motor (PA Thrust 60 Revo 24 Pole) and precision super torque servos (NXT-200HV) it gives this plane a completely new feel in the air! Even if you owned an XR61 before – this would be a new experience. The tremendous upgrade in the iPAs setup, coupled with the larger side area expands the XR61 flight envelope and gives it a whole new style of flying, never seen before in the XR.

The Precision Aerobatics XR-61T comes in three different colours - Red, Green and Blue - Kudos to their very own gifted colour scheme designer, Malcolm Stiles who created this gorgeous scheme.

To quote PA lead test pilot, Daniel Dominguez – “On low rates I couldn’t believe how precise this plane feels, it gives a similar feeling as the big F3A pattern ships or a big 100cc IMAC airplane, and when you switch to high rates, you get the crazy high energy 3D flying of a smaller plane, yet this one has the stability of a big plane. There isn’t one manoeuvre that didn’t make me WOW, knife edge has 0 coupling and harriers and elevators are so easy that it feels like this plane has a gyro, it feels completely locked in and gives that connected feeling that really makes me love this airplane. ”

Being a NEXT Generation PA plane means the XR-61T sustains more energy when flown and by so keeping higher flight speeds which is vital when performing consecutive aerobatics or freestyle manoeuvres and allowing sharp and quick turns, resulting in the most impressive and breathtaking transitions.

You can expect everything: from crazy tumbles to super slow harriers at walking pace, and high alpha knife edge without any coupling! Elevators that need 0 corrections other than small inputs to keep the plane tracking straight. Super tight and easy to do waterfalls, completely flat – flat spins! Slow rolls the length of the field, super precise snap rolls, and completely axial rolls.

This 61″ wingspan design is sure to grant you an unmistakable giant-scale feel: being capable of stable, true and straight lines with unlimited power to recover from any situation.

The XR-61T is incredibly lightweight and rigid. Couple its huge control surfaces with its feather-like lightweight and incredibly low wing loading proves the XR-61T to be a floater that will respond immediately to your stick inputs.

Powered by the PA Thrust 60 24 pole RotorKool® equipped motor and PA Quantum 80 EVO HV ESC with a switching BEC, the XR-61 is extremely responsive providing absolute control, extreme performance and predictability, so you can get out of the most difficult situations with ease – and this builds confidence. The XR-61T is powered by two standard 2200mAh-2600mAh 11.1V packs or single 6s PA 2600 mAh 22 V pack, so you don’t need to get a new charger or buy a battery that is dedicated to only one model in your hangar.

The two PA 2600mAh allow for 6 minutes of safe intensive 3D flight. This iPAs package has proven to be the most powerful yet most economical and reliable setup possible. Best of all, you don’t even need to know how to select your ESC, motor or battery or even need to learn how to program your ESC. Everything is done for you and all that is required is just to plug and play. With the iPAs package, Precision Aerobatics has made it as easy as it gets to get it right the first time when it comes to electrics. Not only does the iPAs package make it easy to get it right, it will give you the identical setup (and potential performance) as their Team Pilots.

The XR-61T is pre-assembled by their skilled staff, each specifically trained in building models using their most advanced FiberFusion® construction techniques to date; using only the finest grade material, all cut by state-of-the-art laser and CNC machines. To attain uniform performance for each and every model manufactured, each plane is consistently crafted on highly sophisticated and accurate jigs. Further, each set of wings is individually matched to their fuselage and all receive matching serial numbers (something most factories don’t do even in giant-scale production). Precision Aerobatics test-assemble each airframe before shipping and ensure precise wing incidence, alignment and fit.

Two wing halves are removable making it easily transportable for a model of this size. The wings are joined together with a CF wing tube and CF sleeve which makes the XR-61T a compact and durable aircraft. All flight surfaces are fully airfoiled, and the ailerons are already pre-hinged with the gaps sealed. For maximum aerodynamics, the aileron design and construction in this model are exceptional, made in such a way that the hinge gap is completely sealed as part of the wing, similar to the full-size high-performance aerobatic planes. This is indeed quite complex to produce: the ailerons fit into the wing trailing edge tunnels being glued and aligned in the factory. Despite the laborious production of this design, Precision Aerobatics insist on producing the ailerons this way, as it ensures perfect aerodynamic flow over the airfoil resulting in maximum efficiency of the control surfaces. To us, it is the aerodynamic performance that counts most.

Following PA tradition this model too gives the word QUALITY a whole new meaning. From the design through the construction, the hardware, level of finish, and attention to detail are second to none. The Precision Aerobatics XR-61T is a TRUE ARF, 99% built for you in their factory. The brief assembly is a joy and most modellers will have it set up in just a few evenings with the help of their video build guide series, PA Builds – now included in the box of the XR-61T.
