Product Description

Product Description

For twenty first century flying enthusiasts, Silverlit's fantastic X-Twin Turbo Express has been designed to resemble a futuristic jet fighter. This miniature radio control jet looks simply amazing in the air, and sounds pretty impressive too, with its pair of powerful ducted fan motors. The attractive Turbo Express gift box includes a fully assembled aeroplane supplied ready-to-fly, complete with a pre-installed 2-channel digital proportional radio control system, and an informative flight manual. Suitable for both beginners and enthusiasts, steer the model using differential thrust by simply moving the transmitter joy stick left or right, whilst operating the throttle to climb or descend. Easy to fly outdoors in calm conditions, and made of lightweight flexible foam to withstand the occasional heavy landing. The Turbo Express incorporates a powerful lithium polymer battery and will fly for up to ten minutes, whilst recharging direct from the transmitter in less than half an hour. The X-Twin aeroplanes are available on 27MHz bands A, B or C, to allow up to three different Silverlit models to be flown together. As colour and frequency varies, we are unable to guarantee which colour product or radio control band you will receive. Requires 6 x AA alkaline batteries (not included).

Box Contains

  • 1 x Silverlit X-Twin Turbo Express Aeroplane supplied ready-to-fly
  • 1 x 2-Channel Radio Control Transmitter with integral Charger
  • 1 x Rechargeable Lithium Polymer Flight Battery incorporated inside model
  • 1 x Multilingual European Instruction Manual
  • 6 x AA Alkaline Batteries required (not included)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good...but only after tinkering! 4 Sep 2012
    Verified Purchase
    Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Firstly, I have to say I absolutely love this plane, but.....

    1) The nose is too light.. So when you get one, DO NOT throw away the clear nose protection that it shipped with, keep it there and tape it on.
    2) Never fly in any kind of wind, fly it when the leaves on trees are barely rustling...otherwise the wind will control it or take it on a long ride ;-)
    3) Take time to work out the controls, and remember it is proportional to a certain extent.. so don't push the controls to extremes all the time (otherwise you'll just keep stalling it)

    Once you have had a good few flights, I'm sure you will get it above tree level as I have and also flying back to your hand!

    Hope this helps...good luck

    My son loved this toy when he got it. I thought it looked flimsy for the money but he didn't seem to mind and thought it was a good investment. It only lasted a couple of weeks and he was very disappointed when it broke.

    1.0 out of 5 stars This item do not fly at all! 19 Oct 2012

    The product we have received, can not fly at all.

    When we throw it it flies to the left and go right into the ground. Does not matter with trimming or left/right. Does exactly the same every time.

    It have been flown both outside in no wind and in a sports hall. Same result.

    Must be something wrong with the casting on the copy we got.
