What You Need to Know
 

NOTE: This is the Receiver Ready model; it comes with motor, fan, ESC and servos installed. It only requires a 4-channel radio with receiver and a 3S LiPo Battery.

In the early 1950s, with Cold War tensions on the rise, the U.S. military required better strategic reconnaissance to help determine Soviet capabilities and intentions. It was thought an aircraft that could fly at 70,000 feet would be beyond the reach of Soviet fighters, missiles, and even radar. Phase 3 brings the iconic U2 spyplane to life in a high performance EDF that represents outstanding value. Manufactured from lightweight foam in a receiver ready format so you’ll be ready for your first exciting mission in no time!

Flying the U-2 Spyplane
The Phase 3 U-2 Spyplane is essentially a powered glider and it can be flown in a very scale-like manner. While it is not suitable for beginners, it does make a very good second aileron model. With the assistance of a helper, switch on the transmitter, then connect a fully charged 1650-2200 mah 11.1V Li-Po battery. Refit the canopy and check the control throws. If there is any wind, ask you helper to point the model into it. Open the throttle fully, then have your helper launch the U-2 slightly nose down with a firm push keeping the wings level. Allow the model to fly straight and continue to hold the power on until sufficient height has been gained.

The U-2 is best flown smoothly, trading height for speed for gentle aerobatic maneuvers. The wings will flex in flight - as did the full size - but you should avoid pulling very high-G maneuvers when flying at full speed or after a steep dive to avoid over-stressing the airframe.

Landing presents no difficulties and the U-2 can be simply lined up into the wind and the motor power reduced until the model settles into its glide path. Once landed, please unplug and remove the Li-Po battery from the model and allow it to cool completely before recharging.

Awesome deal! August 12, 2013
Reviewer: Robert Hatfield from Layton , UT United States  
I received my U2 packed very well.  Although it says not for beginners I found it very stable and fun to fly.  I only have about 15hrs flight time.
