    This innovative aircraft combines the sport capabilities of a 450 size helicopter with the rock-solid stability of a GPS-stabilized flight control system. Similar to high-end drones, this system links with GPS satellites in orbit to maintain positional awareness at all times. Sold as an RTF ("Ready To Fly") package, this Fly Wing 450AF includes almost everything you need to fly except batteries. All radio programming is completed at the factory for you and Motion RC carries a full range of spare parts at an affordable price.

    Featuring a carbon fiber frame, dual brushless motors, a high precision flybarless flight controller, and Omni H1 GPS technology, and a long flight duration of 8-13 minutes on an economical 4S LiPo battery, the 450AF is the perfect helicopter for intermediate pilots looking for a casual trainer that can also push the envelope toward sportier flying.

    NOTE: the one-click reverse feature is turned off by default, as it may damage the body. This can be turned on by linking with a PC.
    Durable and Stable

    The CNC-finished metal main rotor assembly and linkage layout is configured like larger class helicopters, positioning servos in optimal positions for mechanical advantage. The frame is laser cut from high strength aviation grade carbon fiber that resists twisting, and the durable landing skids’ widened stance improves clearance and stability when operating from firm, clear, and clean surfaces.
    Reliable Radio Control

    Featuring a modern 2.4GHz 10 channel radio transmitter, the 450L V2 can be operated near other RC vehicles without risk of losing signal. Conveniently, all of the basic flight mixes and functions are pre-programmed at the factory for you. Like any GPS-equipped flight system, the helicopter requires a one-time, ~15 second GPS calibration process that calibrates itself for your specific geographic region to improve the GPS’ accuracy. For advanced pilots, the expansive user manual includes instructions to unlock additional programming features via the radio’s convenient touchscreen LCD display.

    I’m glad to see any more scale helis in the inventory, but my god that fuselage is hideous.. The undersized, painted on cockpit, no V-stab, no H-stab end plates, super short rotor mast, etc. Hopefully they can work on their scale lines a bit more in the future..

      Hello I just joined into this forum and would like to know if parts are shipped from Europe or elsewhere and if there is a parts supplier for the FW200 here in Europe thanks

        I just saw the video on this and I've always loved this helicopter. But it's been my dream for a long time to make it FPV. I'm willing to do that with this one if there's room somewhere inside to put the camera up in the nose that won't interferel with the landing gear and securing the transmitter somewhere in the body where it might catch some air. I'm wanting to put the DJI 03 camera system in it.

        Basically I need to know what kind of space is inside that shell

          How do you adjust the main belt tension in V3 Airwolf?

            Fantastic looking heli. Lots of beginner friendly tech.
            watching the videos the initial ascent seems very quick. Almost jumps off the ground.
            Is there a way of slowing the ascent down so it is more scale like.
