The Opterra™ 2m flying wing is the collaborative effort of George
Hicks and Mike McConville - two of model aviation's premier aircraft
designers. Together, they have created some of the best flying RC
airplanes in the world. This one is no exception. Its lightweight
construction, long wingspan and efficient aerodynamics give it a wide
range of capabilities that includes everything from sport aerobatics to
soaring. It even gives you the ability to put yourself in the pilot's
seat with FPV gear while using a GoPro Hero 3, Hero 4 or similar class
camera to record HD video at the same time.* This Bind-N-Fly® version
comes with the added benefit of a Spektrum™ AS3X® receiver that features
optional SAFE Select technology.
Advanced Aerodynamics and Lightweight Construction
Central to the aircraft's amazing capabilities are the advanced
aerodynamics that shaped its design. In addition to its efficient
airfoil, winglets and fins on the fuselage help the model track true in
all kinds of air. Vortex generators near the leading edge of the top of
the wing, and just ahead of the elevons on the bottom of the wing,
enhance slow speed stability and control. The airframe itself is
constructed of carbon-reinforced, hollow-core Z-Foam™ material that
keeps weight to a minimum while maintaining strength and rigidity.
Easy to Assemble and Transport
One of the model's most impressive features is how easy it makes it
for you to take it with you anywhere. Its plug-in wing panels and
winglets are secured with thumbscrews so assembly or disassembly can be
done in a matter of minutes. And the box it comes in is designed to
function as a carrying case complete with a handle.
AS3X Receiver with Optional SAFE Select Technology
The model's AS3X (Artificial Stabilization - 3-aXis) receiver works
behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The
result is a sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like
you're flying an expertly tuned aircraft.
This receiver also features optional SAFE® Select technology that you
can turn on and off with the flip of a transmitter switch. With SAFE
Select technology activated, you get:
High-Output Brushless Power System with Folding Prop
The high-output power system provides more than enough power for
carrying camera payloads or performing sport aerobatics. When you want
to power off and grab a thermal, the folding prop reduces drag so you
can glide longer.
Up to 3 Camera Mounting Stations Available
In addition to a sleek, low-drag nose for soaring and flying
aerobatics, the Opterra wing includes an optional camera nose with up to
two forward-facing stations for FPV or HD cameras. There is also a
downward-looking camera bay in the belly designed for GoPro Hero 3, Hero
4 and similar HD cameras .
The camera nose includes four foam inserts.
- Insert for GoPro Hero 3 and Hero 4 Cameras
- Insert for the recommended Spektrum FPV camera (see below)
- Insert for other FPV cameras
- Blank insert that can be custom cut for other payloads
It also has an external mounting station for low-profile Mobius or
Legend HD cameras. This allows pilots to mount an HD camera on top of
the nose and an FPV camera in the nose.
*Cameras and FPV gear not included.
