What began in 1969 as a derelict wreck currently holds the straight-line speed record for piston-engine aircraft at 528.3 miles per hour. At 500 pounds lighter and 1000 horsepower stronger than a stock Grumman F8F-2 Bearcat, Race #77 is the crown jewel of the Lewis Air Legends collection. To this day, Rare Bear is a favorite to all except the competition.
The E-flite® Rare Bear radio control airplane delivers an exhilarating flight experience capable of 100+ MPH*, right out of the box. Like the full-size, this model has been outfitted with a highly-tuned, oversize power system and all unnecessary weight has been trimmed. This synergy maximizes high-speed thrills without sacrificing the super-friendly handling you expect from an E-flite model.
Whether you?re an experienced racing pilot or an intermediate sport pilot who wants an incredible high-speed experience, the E-flite Rare Bear is ideal.
Since the E-flite® and Spektrum? electronics are already installed this airplane is ready to be setup with your available radio system. The Rare Bear requires a full-range 6+ channel programmable transmitter, a 4+ channel receiver, a 3300mAh 4S 14.8V 50C Li-Po battery and a suitable Li-Po balance charger.
Capable of 100+ MPH Flight Speeds
Packed with a high-speed motor, robust ESC and a racing propeller, the highly tuned E-flite Rare Bear delivers incredible high-speed performance. Our average straight-line speed of 100+ MPH was achieved with a pre-production model with recommended battery.
The pre-installed brushless outrunner and 70-amp brushless ESC installed are matched to deliver 100+ MPH* flight speeds with the recommended 4S 14.8V 3300mAh 50C Li-Po battery.
Strong and Light
Specially reinforced Z-Foam? construction makes it possible to replicate complex airframe detail and maintain rigidity while keeping flying weight low. Built into the structure is a scuff plate that helps protect the airframe during a belly-landing.
Metal Gear Servos
Factory installed Spektrum 16-gram metal gear micro servos deliver durability that?s smooth so you get the control authority a high-performance racer deserves.
