FlyBeam Night Flyer from HobbyKing


No time to fly during the day? No problem! The HobbyKing® ™ Flybeam night flyer opens a whole new dimension of flying. The key feature of this product is the pre-installed, multi-color LED system with wing tip Strobe lights. Couple this lighting system with a stable airframe molded in ultra-durable EPP foam and you have the makings of the perfect night flyer. Though it may look like just another high wing trainer, the Flybeam is anything but. Stable and forgiving with ultra responsive controls make this the perfect sport aerobatic model for your first foray into the night. Multiple colors of LEDs have been used to provide distinct contrast for easy orientation in the dark. 

Assembly of the Flybeam is ultra simple. No complicated soldering of wires for the night system. Just plug the wing LED's into the PCB board, connect the stabilizer to the pre-run wire through the fuselage and your night flying system is completed. Attach the tail, landing gear, wing and propeller and the rest of the assembly is complete. All told, your Flybeam can be ready to fly in just an hour or so of work. 

All you need to supply is your own 4+ channel transmitter and receiver plus a 3S 11.1V LiPoly Battery.
