E-flite’s AT-6 25e ARF is a superb scale replica of the legendary “Texan” trainer used by the U.S.—and its allies—from WWII through the late 1960s. It features a level of scale detail that is exceptional for an ARF of this size. You get all this realism without having to spend weeks of building, covering and painting. Just about everything has been done for you before you even open the box. All that’s left to do is a few hours of final assembly and radio installation. When you’re done, you’ll have a fantastic-flying scale warbird your friends will swear you scratch-built yourself.
The AT-6 is the first in E-flite's Platinum Series. Our PLATINUM SERIES delivers superior, enhanced features and meticulous attention to detail. The Platinum Series is one more way that E-flite brings you the most advanced electric flight experience.
The AT-6 25e comes out of the box with all kinds of details that have been finished for you, including a factory-painted fiberglass cowl, air scoops, dummy radial engine, painted canopy and pilot, scale strut covers, scale trim scheme and much more. And, the Texan’s sheeted airframe compares favorably to its full-scale cousin. It helps maintain the model’s strict scale appearance and strong flight performance. Scale airfoils were used to maintain the exact scale outline of the AT-6 Texan's tail surfaces to include counterbalances. Both the elevators and rudder are pre-hinged out of the box and ready for installation. An optional detailed cockpit kit is available separately (EFL4512), which includes an aft instrument hood, main fuselage rollover structure, two seat backs, and a floor. One pilot is included with the kit and an additional pilot is available separately (EFLA150). Genuine Hangar 9® UltraCote® provides a durable, refined finish.
The scale split flaps are operational and prehinged right out of the box. Using a unique pin interlock system, they plug together and operate using only 2 servos. Optional Robart retracts (EFL4515) are available that have been specially designed for the AT-6 25e. Making these mechanical retracts functional is as simple as installing a servo and connecting the pre-bent wire linkages.
Getting to the battery and speed control is a cinch. Just lift off the hatch, which adheres tightly to the fuselage thanks to a strong, permanent magnet that won’t fall off mid-flight. The large battery compartment can accommodate a wide range of Li-Po packs. Transportability is significantly increased by plug-in horizontal stabilizer halves and outboard wing panels. The center wing section also removes from the fuselage with only two bolts for more convenience.
