E-Flite Viper 90mm – Most IMPRESSIVE RC Jet Flight Ever!!!

E-flite’s 90mm Viper is easily our most impressive EDF RC Jet that we’ve ever laid our hands on, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise since its predecessor 70mm Viper was always so great!  E-flite has made notable improvements on the 70mm Viper, but one of our personal favorite improvements is the increased rudder authority, allowing for much more maneuverability in the air and overall control of the aircraft.  We also love the addition of lights on the 90mm Viper, and the now standard but very well accepted SMART technology, which we will talk about more, later in this post!
One thing that we were honestly surprised to learn is that the Viper is based off of a real jet that a pilot could just buy if they had the funds!  We had always thought this was some sort of mock idea someone came up with to just be a fun RC to fly, but no, this jet really exists in the full-scale world!  
 
Some things to note about the E-Flite Viper 90mm would have to start with the sound of this machine as it flies by at full throttle!  If you’ve ever heard electric RC airplanes fly, there is something to be desired, especially when compared to gas or glow planes.  However, when this large 90mm EDF zips by at full throttle, you’ll likely be blown away and asking yourself if you really are witnessing an electric plane fly or if it is a real jet!  Some sort of magic happens in that air intake that just makes this thing sound so cool, and if you want to hear for yourself be sure to watch our videos of the Viper 90mm above!
 
With 6S or 22.2V, the Viper 90mm will never leave you wanting more power.  It comes equipped with a 130A Brushless ESC and a very impressive Brushless Outrunner Motor!  Now standard  
on a plane like this, you’ll be happy to know this RC comes with SAFE technology which really helps to learn the planes’ characteristics before taking to the skies completely on your own.  This is very calming, especially on that first crucial landing to know that SAFE will help bring your plane back in one piece.  If you’re unfamiliar with SAFE technology, it keeps your airplane level at all times and won’t allow for a mistake that could make you crash.  Also, this plane has a newer technology that we love called SMART technology!  There is so much that we could talk about here with this, but in summary the main thing to take away is telemetry.  Having telemetry on an airplane like this is absolutely crucial to getting the most bang for your buck on each flight, considering you’ll be looking at an average of maybe a 4-minute flight.  An alarm will sound, letting you know it’s time to land when your battery gets low.  
 
You can however install larger batteries for longer flight time.  There is enough space under the canopy for 4,000 mah to 7,000 mah of power which could potentially give you closer to a seven- or eight-minute flight!  Beautiful retractable landing gear and just perfectly designed from the ground up, the E-flite 90mm Viper is easily our most impressive EDF RC Jet and we couldn’t be happier with every flight so far on this plane!
