Product Description

Product Description

Silverlit's superb Sopwith Camel has already proven popular with X-Twin fans, capturing the nostalgia of a bygone age of aviation with this brilliant prefabricated classic biplane. The flying surfaces are made of lightweight laminated foam, with a single plastic propeller, spoked wheels and wing struts provided for added effect. The attractive Sopwith Camel 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 a conventional rudder 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 Sopwith Camel 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).

Product Description

The Sopwith Camel from Silverlit is a radio controlled bi-plane.- It includes radio frequency technology over two channels for outside flights.- Precise speed and stability controls.- Takes off from the ground or your hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get The Weight and Throttle Right. 15 Oct 2010
By BigMoab
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As the title says, Im more of an outdoor flying man so i tested it in a little bit of wind on an overcast turn sunny day yesterday. After testing the flights and applying a little weight to the front as it seems to rise nose up in the wind so i weighed it down a bit with some white tac and a little blob of white tac in the cockpit the re-tested the camel in the wind and applying only 50-65% throttle i managed to fly it horizontal and make the ol' bird soar in the bright blue sky. The top wing fell off after countless nose dives into the ground so i just taped the top wing in the middle of the struts which gives it a bit more strength It was in the air for a good 4-6 minutes before letting go of the throttle and seeing it glide down on to the soft october grass. Unfotunately it has war wounds and was unable to fly after more flights but i hope to repair it with some tape and get her back in the sky once again. I cant wait to see what it can produce indoors, It really is a great plane and a good looking model aswel with ATD (Attention to Detail). Hope this review helps others in deciding wether or not to buy this excellent little RC Sopwtih Camel from silverlit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Camels a coming 11 Oct 2010
By biggles
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a long time aeromodeller I am familiar with flying radio control. I am also helping to build a full size Camel for the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden in Bedfordshire so this model has two interests for me.
In the winter we fly RC models indoor and so this camel was a must to try out, and was not disappointing.
It comes ready made in a neat package which displays the classic shape of the camel to perfection, and can be used to store the delicate structure in between sorties.
The transmitter is the normal 27hhz unit from Silverlit and has three switchable spots on that frequency. Therefore if a group of friends is buying some make sure you get A B & C so you can fly together.
Detail on the models is superb, the only slight quibble is the RFC roundels on the fuselage sides are, I believe, too far forward. Otherwise the Clerget rotary engine, twin Vickers machine guns, and undercarriage are authentic. Even the prop has a scale outline, and a spare is included. This is attached by means of a 'Prop saver' rubber band device to protect it in a heavy landing.
The rudder is actuated by a magetic coil which gives full left or right movement. To steer a quick dab of rudder is all that is needed as if it is held on it can cause a dive. A spare rudder is included and this just clicks in place making sure the 'top' is at the top or your left will become right!.
This model has caused a lot of interest at our indoor flying sessions at Horsforth, near Leeds, run by the Northern Area of The British Model Flying Association.
Although the model is lightweight it is surprisingly robust, and does need the space of a school hall, but is loads of fun.
The only small criticism is that a more modern radio on 2.4ghz would be an advantage, even only for the shorter transmitter aerial.

4.0 out of 5 stars Biggles flies again 20 Dec 2009
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A simple but effective introduction to radio controlled model flight. Made to take moderate knocks care should be taken to avoid propeller when in use. Takes a little practice to extract the best and a fairly roomy area is needed until control is at a reasonable level of ability. Good fun and looks great in flight. Value for money considered excellent and provides hours of enjoyment.X-Twin Classic - Sopwith Camel (3 Colour Asst)

4.0 out of 5 stars Works ok 3 July 2013
By John
Verified Purchase
Have only tried it out once when there was no wind. Flew it for about 30 minutes on one charge. Much easier to launch from shoulder height. Had several crash landings on grass no problem. Plane is very light and did not hurt when it crashed into me! I am still learning how to fly it.
