The sticks on the transmitter feel awful, but it works! I mainly just bought this for the airframe. Still a pretty good price. With such a huge wingspan and flies so stable even in windy condition with my Pixhawk flight controller. I was short one control linkage so the first few flights were without flaps/spoilers so I had to have a couple hundred foot long runway because it came in like a bullet. Then I tip stalled it as it was too tail-heavy. Adjusted the CG and the next flight I tried to see how fast I could get it going in a dive and the tail plane was loose so it started to buffet (and disconnected the elevator control rod :'| ) and I slammed into a dirt road doing at least 40 mph. Exploded a battery, tore the hinges on all control surfaces and surprisingly only damaged the insides which I put back together with some hot glue and laser cut new plywood. Flight times are great too!
wow, what an amazing price!
I have a few questions regarding this aircraft. (Of course I really don't need one, I fly just fine on my own. But my coverman might like this. He used to fly fixed wing aircraft. 1) Does this have GPS guidance or is it line of sight RC? (I understood that the FAA does not allow GPS guidance.) 2) If RC, what is the range....best. 3) If RC is lost will it automatically return? 4)What is the max altitude...not the regulatory limit of 400 feet but the potential that the aircraft is capable? I am surprised this is for a beginner. Tale draggers are not as easy for take offs and landings are nose wheel aircraft. I will have to fly around and see one of these in the air!

This is not available for shipping to Europe :(
Does it come with a camera or just the gimble
samueluxurious17
Hi samueluxurious17,
It will come with the 2 axis Gimbal and the dampened mount. No Go-Pro included at that price, sorry, we wish!
DaveHoff
thank you for clarifying that
The item title says "FPV", but the descriptions says this drop does NOT include _any_ FPV gear. Some of the pictures show cameras and other gear, but the break down image (the 5th or so from the last which has all of the plane pieces) makes it look like this drop doesn't include any sort of camera or FPV gear.
I have had one of these for quite a while and it's a great long range fpv platform. I can get about 90 min of flight time with mine, but that's with a low kv motor and big 6s pack. I would strongly recommend a 3d flight controller like the eagletree vector to go along with this if you're going to use it for fpv.
This video does a little better job of explaining details and shows flight charicteristics of the Ranger EX FPV!
Dude this thing looks awesome but I have two questions...
a.) Where would be the best place to fly one of these. b.) I've never actually had a remote control plane so would this be a good starter?
bgant5120
Hi bgant5120,
This plane is quite large so you will need a good size area to fly. A local public park or high school football field would be the minimum area suggested. Please of course check with your local parks and rec to see if they allow flying models same with the local schools.
This is an aircraft is designed with new flyers in mind. The plastic body reinforced with foam is durable and will stand up to tough landings and crashes. The motor has been mounted in the rear "pusher prop" style to preserve it in severe crashes. Large wings with dihedral and flaps make it stable and require short runway for taking off and landing. Everything needed to fly the aircraft "line of sight" is in the box!
DaveHoff
Thanks m8 I think I might get one. :)
With some drones I would get about 20+ minuts of flight time for the same price as far as I "think" iv seen... Så har is the advantage / point of getting this "device" compared to a similar quad copter device (or something of that nature) I do understand that some of this stuff is subjective and about experience, but I am seeing this mostly from a photography experience , point of view. (I like doing stuff from afar and up)
I would love to hear some arguments on why this price of equipment brings a unique experience. Compared to,lets say, one of the previously sold quad copter here on massdrop.
G... GIMBLE? XD
It should be mentioned that this model will need to be registered with the FAA, as it weighs more than 250g and less than 55lb.
What is the flight time with the included battery?
russw
Volantex R/C is claiming 20+ mins flight time with included battery.
