Default E-flite Viper 70mm EDF Jet

These are my E-flite Viper 70mm EDF Jet review videos.

Unboxing:

Maiden Flight:
E-flite Viper Jet Review Notes:

Pros:
- A nicely priced BNF 6S EDF Jet
- Bolts together and doesn't require glue
- Looks better in person, though I still wish they would have picked a different scheme for this jet
- Easy to see in the air
- Plenty of speed for a Beginner EDF Jet
- Lands slow and gentle with full flaps

Cons:
- The canopy arrived scuffed
- They don't provide any tools like Freewing EDF Jets to help snake through wires or for installing hex bolts.
- Connecting all of the wires through the fuse was not easy, so I am glad I had the CrewZinn stand to help.

How many minutes of flight time do you get with it?

I show that at the end of each of the flight videos

So far I have been able to fly 5 minutes or more with mixed throttle. This for an EDF Jet has nice flight times for sure.

This is my First Viper Grass Landing with my E-flite Viper 70mm EDF Jet.
