Twist 3D 480 from E-flite


The E-flite® Twist 3D 480 ARF is the ideal sport electric park flyer for the intermediate RC pilot who wants aerobatic mobility. In fact, the Twist 3D 480 is great for anyone just getting into aerobatics, because it can easily be set up so that its large control surfaces move only enough for moderate agility. The lightweight construction gives the Twist 3D 480 outstanding low-speed control and friendly handling, even while performing extreme maneuvers. As your talent grows, simply increase the control surface throws and discover the world of 3D aerobatics.

The Twist 3D 480 builds quickly; plus, the convenient size makes it perfect for getting in a quick flight on the go. The all-wood construction makes it very strong, and its high-contrast, genuine UltraCote® covering will keep it looking good for a long time. Don't forget that the recommended E-flite electronics are perfectly matched to make the Twist 3D 480 the kind of sport model you can get tight with, or just hang loose.
