By: Tim Gluth

New from E-flite, take to the skies in one of the coolest aircraft ever to break the sound barrier; the SR-17 Blackbird Twin 40mm EDF. Their version of this U.S. Air Force jet isn't faster than the speed of sound, but it should give experienced R/C pilots a new challenge in flight.

Made from EPO foam, this lightweight radio-controlled jet features two 40mm fans that are powered by brushless 6800kv motors. Capable of handling 4S LiPo power, the SR-71 Blackbird Twin 40mm EDF should have no problem getting into the sky.

This model is a Bind-N-Fly jet, only requiring a compatible Spektrum transmitter and batteries. Other technological features of this plane include Spektrum AS3X (Artificial Stabilization-3-aXis), SAFE Select, and Airware telemetry capability.
