By: Tim Gluth

If you're an experienced R/C pilot who wants a new challenge (and aircraft) for their hangar, E-flite has a new EDF (electric ducted fan) jet for you to lust over. The Viper 70mm EDF BNF Basic Jet is a sleek aircraft with a modern design and eye-catching appearance.

The orange, white, and gray camouflage color scheme is easy to spot, which is a good thing as this R/C plane features a 1900KV brushless motor to make it zoom through the sky. To get a better idea of how this aircraft performs, check out this action footage from the Horizon Hobby team:
