That claim became fact as more than 20,000 were produced over nearly two decades, helping hundreds of thousands of new civilian pilots successfully take to the skies. After E-flite released the original Carbon-Z Cessna 150 2.1m, it also earned high esteem for its "mild to wild" flight capabilities making it the perfect first giant scale or everyday fun-to-fly large-scale model for a wide range of pilots. Now E-flite has updated and upgraded the model while christening it the Carbon-Z Cessna 150T 2.1m the "T" standing for Taildragger. This versions standard taildragger landing gear, with oversized tundra-style tires on the main gear and a steerable tailwheel, allows you to fly from a wider variety of surfaces and even off rough terrain. The 150T also includes a more reliable and capable Spektrum Avian Smart ESC. With a compatible receiver (such as the AR637TA installed in the BNF Basic version), it provides a variety of real-time telemetry data to keep you aware of power system status while you explore the improved capabilities in more places than ever before!
Updated and upgraded, the E-flite Carbon-Z Cessna 150T 2.1m is the Smartest, most capable, most convenient, and easiest to fly giant scale model of the civil aviation legend ever! Its factory-installed Spektrum Avian 60-amp Smart ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor are compatible with a wide range of batteries. Install a 4S pack for slow and smooth scale flying, use a 5S battery for added power, or go with 6S for far-better-than-scale performance! Keep the weight and wing loading down with a 3200mAh battery, enjoy a great balance of performance and handling with a 5000mAh pack, or move up to 7000mAh for long, 10-15+ minute flight times. The choice is yours! The ESC is paired with an AR637TA receiver in the BNF Basic version, giving you access to real-time telemetry data plus the benefits of AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies and motor reversing for special ground handling and other capabilities (compatible Smart receiver and 7+ channel transmitter required for reversing).
Out of the box, the Cessna 150T 2.1m comes with taildragger landing gear and oversized tundra-style tires so you can fly from a wider variety of surfaces and rough terrain. The originals tricycle landing gear, smaller tires, wheel pants and floats are also available separately so you can choose the look and capabilities you prefer! Use the functional, and very effective, flaps for shorter takeoffs and landings. Factory-installed LED landing, navigation and strobe lights, powered from the flight battery, enhance the realism. Composite-reinforced, hollow-core EPO construction results in a lightweight yet durable airframe. Plus durable, metal-geared servos all around deliver crisp, precise control whether you choose to fly mild or wild! The two-piece wing with thumbscrews and an exclusive hands-free servo connection system make it easy to install or remove the wings easily in a few minutes, no tools required! For all of these reasons and more, the Cessna 150T 2.1m is the perfect first giant scale or everyday large-scale model for a wide range of pilots. Best of all, you can have it out of the box and ready to fly in about the time it takes to charge a battery!
