The Durafly EFX Racer has been designed from the ground up to offer the speed (100mph+) and strength normally reserved only for high end full composite models, but with the handling and satisfaction only a Durafly model can offer.
This 1100mm (43") span model boasts a huge list of high performance features that set the EFX apart from the competition. The 2300kv 28mm brushless outrunner (designed specially for the EFX) uses ultra high speed Japanese bearings for only the best performance. The pre-installed Durafly 50amp ESC has been optimized to deliver smoothly the power you need, when you want it and all control surfaces use high speed, high torque digital 9g servos (metal geared on the ailerons) together with ball link connectors to deliver true precision and control through-out the speed range.
The EFX Racers high performance doesnt end with the electronics. The airframe has been engineered to be both rigid and lightweight, utilizing both glass and carbon fiber reinforcements throughout the model in combination with Super Compressed EPO foam and a highly polished surface finish to deliver the ultimate in performance in the air and the sleekest of looks on the ground. Following the supplied comprehensive manual, the EFX clips and screws together in minutes. Connect the control surfaces to the servos and install your own choice of receiver & lipoly pack and you are ready to fly!
Versatility is another of the design features of the EFX Racer. Right out of the box youre provided with two different power options, 6x5 for 3cell and 5x5 for 4cell. For good all round sports performance a 2200mah 3S lipo on the 6x5 will give good speed and is recommended for pilots less experienced with fast models. However, for true high speeds and power when you open the throttle, a 1800mah 4S on the 5x5 is the winners choice and will get you going over 100mph. For the ultimate speed/performance on 4cell, a 5.5x4.5 is recommended for 100mph+.
Complimenting the amazing speeds of the EFX is it stunning agility in the air. A simple under arm hand launch at 3/4 throttle from standing gets the EFX in the air and youll have unlimited vertical as soon as you open up to full (4S). A full house of controls (Aileron, Elevator, Rudder) gives the EFX remarkable aerobatics performance. Loops can be as BIG as you want them, rolls are very precise either fast or slow and the EFX will knife edge all day long! Thanks to the exceptionally strong airframe, high powered, high G maneuvers will not present a problem either. The EFX Racer never fail you, but always leave you wanting more! Its not all about going fast and turning hard, youll find the EFX handles exceptionally at slows speeds with both elegance and confidence inspiring grace. This is especially true in landing where youll find no hint of a stall and good control all the way down to the ground.
Whatever set-up you choose and however you prefer to fly, your EFX Racer will perform and deliver time and time again and always keeping you coming back for more.
