PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Turbo Timber SWS (Sport Wood Series) 2.0m is the largest E-flite Timber model yet! It's based on the design of the foam Turbo Timber 1.5m models but features strong, stiff and lightweight built-up wood construction. The balsa and lite-ply airframe arrives factory-finished with genuine UltraCote film covering and is mostly factory assembled so you can have it flying in almost no time - without the use of glue or special tools. A two-piece wing makes it easier to store and transport, and it's equipped with functional flaps for shorter takeoffs and landings along with improved low-speed performance. Plus you have the option to utilize crow and/or full-span flaperons for even better STOL capabilities.

The BNF (Bind-N-Fly) Basic version is equipped with six factory-installed digital and metal-geared Spektrum A6380 servos, a 4S to 6S compatible Avian 5055-500Kv outrunner motor, and a 100-amp Smart ESC that can provide a variety of power system related telemetry data with Smart and non-Smart batteries via compatible Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters. It's also equipped with an AR8360T receiver that provides full-range, real-time telemetry data including overall battery voltage, current draw, ESC temp, and more - plus motor reversing for special ground handling and other capabilities - along with the benefits of AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies. Or, the ARF (Almost-Ready-To-Fly) version is ready for installation of the electronics and power system you prefer!

Both versions feature simple and durable aluminium landing gear with oversized tundra-style wheels and are also ready to accept the optional Carbon-Z Float and Mounting Sets (both sold separately). They also feature factory-installed LED navigation and landing lights along with transparent windows for added scale-like looks, and a convenient top hatch for fast and easy battery changes. And it all combines to make this a great first-ever "wood", everyday sport flying and aerobatic capable, plus large-scale Timber model for intermediate to experienced pilots!

Wood Airframe

The balsa and lite-ply airframe is lightweight yet stiff and strong to offer a flying experience you can't get with molded foam models! Best of all it arrives mostly factory-assembled and finished in genuine UltraCote⌐ film covering. Plus, the BNF Basic version also includes durable, factory-installed metal-geared and digital SpektrumT A6380 servos. And in the unfortunate event you damage any airframe parts or components and can't repair them, a full line of replacement/spare parts is readily available.


Versatile Gear Options

From thick grass to gravel paths and dirt trails-even local lakes and ponds-you can easily fly off of these and many other surfaces with the Turbo Timber SWS 2.0m. The simple yet durable aluminium landing gear is equipped with oversized, tundra-style wheels/tyres to soak up the bumps of rough surfaces. Plus, the optional Carbon-Z⌐ float (EFLA5600; sold separately) and mounting (EFLA5605; sold separately) sets make it easy to swap between wheels and floats depending on where you choose to fly!


Scale-Like Features

Like other Timber models, the Turbo Timber SWS is equipped with realistic-looking LED landing and navigation lights that are factory-installed and powered by the flight battery. And although it's not a scale model, it also features transparent windows for added scale-like looks.


Easy Assembly

The BNF Basic version Turbo Timber SWS 2.0m arrives mostly factory-assembled with the power system, servos, and receiver installed. The ARF version is also mostly factory-assembled so all you need to do is finish some quick and easy final bolt-together assembly - without glue or special tools - and you'll be ready to fly in less time compared to almost all other wood models!


Uniquely Capable

The Turbo Timber SWS 2.0m is based on the design of the very popular Turbo Timber 1.5m models. But it also features the benefits of strong and stiff built-up wood construction that makes it capable of even sportier performance with excellent high-speed handling and amazing aerobatic capabilities. It's equipped with functional flaps for shorter takeoffs and landings along with improved low-speed performance, plus you have the option to utilize crow and/or full-span flaperons for improved STOL capabilities.


BNF Basic - Skill Leve 2

Skill Level 2 aircraft, like this one, are suitable for RC pilots who already have some experience and the skills to assemble, set up and fly similar class models. And although this BNF Basic version is equipped with optional-use SAFE Select, it's not a suitable first-ever RC aircraft for new pilots, or "next step after a trainer" model for low-time RC pilots. You should have the experience and skills necessary to successfully fly STOL-capable and/or larger models like the E-flite Turbo Timber Evolution 1.5m, Carbon-Z Cessna 150T 2.1m, Carbon-Z Cub SS 2.1m, or other similar class models before attempting to fly the Turbo Timber SWS 2.0m.


ARF - Skill Level 3

Skill Level 3 aircraft, like this one, are suitable for more experienced RC pilots who already have the skills to assemble, set up and fly similar class models. This ARF version requires more experience and skills to assemble and fly than the BNF Basic version because you will need to select and install a suitable power system, servos and a receiver that does not already include properly tuned AS3X and SAFE Select technologies. It's not a suitable first-ever RC aircraft for new pilots, a "next step after a trainer" model for low-time RC pilots, or first large-scale model for intermediate pilots. You should have the experience and skills necessary to successfully fly STOL-capable and/or larger models like the E-flite Turbo Timber Evolution 1.5m, Carbon-Z Cessna 150T 2.1m, Carbon-Z Cub SS 2.1m, or other similar class models before attempting to fly the Turbo Timber SWS 2.0m.
