V1200 1.2m BNF Basic, with Smart, by E-flite
Look good, fly fast AND fly Smart with the E-flite® V1200! Larger and even faster than the popular V900™, it comes factory-equipped with operational flaps and retracts, along with a high-performance brushless power system that lets you choose how ballistic you want to be. Level-flight top speeds of up to 100+ MPH are possible with 4S batteries. Or reach up to 140+ MPH using common 6S 3200–7000mAh packs! Along with head-spinning speed, the V1200 offers unexpectedly stable slow flight and locked-in precision aerobatic capabilities. It's also equipped with a 100-amp Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC, and the BNF® Basic version is equipped with an AR637TA receiver that offers full-range telemetry including real-time battery voltage, current, temperature and more when using compatible transmitters.

Grab the sticks to fly the fastest prop-driven E-flite® airplane yet! With 4S 3200–5000mAh batteries and the factory-installed brushless power system, the V1200 reaches up to 100+ MPH in level flight— making it suitable for intermediate pilots with some high-speed flying experience, especially when utilizing the BNF® Basic version's optional-use SAFE® Select technology. Experienced pilots can unleash level-flight top speeds up to 140+ MPH with popular 6S 3200–7000mAh batteries! The Spektrum™ Avian™ 100A Smart ESC lets you speed with confidence, knowing all is well with the power system and battery from the real-time telemetry data sent via compatible receivers (such as the BNF® Basic version's AR637TA) to Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters.
Speed and aerobatic enthusiasts will love the locked-in precision of the six digital, metal-geared servos and ball-link equipped linkages. Operational flaps improve slow-flight performance and allow for shorter takeoffs and landings. Electric retracts with sprung wire struts let you fly from paved, packed dirt or shorter grass surfaces at any suitably sized fields. The sleek airframe is composite-reinforced throughout and is molded in new, higher-density EPO that delivers a stronger and stiffer airframe with a smoother, dent and damage resistant surface. Plus it's factory-finished in a vibrant, high-contrast trim scheme for improved visibility and orientation. No glue is required for assembly, and a total of six screws install the stabs plus the one-piece wing that attaches and removes easily for convenient storage and transport. That means you can be ready to enjoy a flying experience unlike any other in less time than it takes to charge a battery. It's easy to look good, fly FAST and fly Smart with the V1200!
The exclusive Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart ESC provides a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR637TA) and Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.
Basic Completion Level Advantage
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly® (BNF®) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!
The V1200 is equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.
Versatile Brushless Power
The V1200 is factory-equipped with a high-power brushless power system that gives you the option to choose just how fast you want to go. Simply drop in a 4S battery to reach level-flight speeds up to 100+ MPH with the included APC 10x8E propeller and aluminum spinner. Or, to go beyond that and reach top speeds up to 140+ MPH, install a 6S battery—no modifications or upgrades necessary!
Strength and Precision
Speed is nothing without the right balance of strength and precise control. The V1200's stunning and sleek airframe is molded in special, higher-density EPO that results in a stronger and stiffer airframe with a smoother, dent and damage resistant finish. It's also composite reinforced including multiple carbon fiber spars throughout the wing, fuselage and tail. Plus it's equipped with digital, metal-geared servos that deliver the precise control and reliability you need to enjoy flying FAST flight after flight.
Operational flaps offer improved slow-flight capability and performance while also making it possible to take off and land in shorter distances and at slower speeds. Reliable electric retracts with sprung wire struts make it possible to fly from a variety of surfaces including pavement, dirt and grass.
No glue is required for assembly and you can have the V1200 ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery! With a total of six screws, the stabs and the one-piece wing bolt into place and can easily be removed for convenient storage and transport.
