Description

Designed by our Chief engineer Shaun Vanunu, this plane is all you were expecting – The Best Bipe just got bigger and even more awesome!

Featuring IWRS – Innovative Wing Removal System this plane is very easy to transport, as the wings come off very similarly to a monoplane.

Economic set up requires only 2 servos on all the wings, instead of 4 servos.

This 60 size biplane is by far the lightest biplane in its class.

iPAs Drive:
The drive package includes

  • •    Ultimate AMR 60
  • •    PA Thrust 60R outrunner motor with RotorKool Technology
  • •    PA Quantum 70A High performance Programmable ESC with HV SBEC
  • •    CNC machined precision prop adapter (We decided to include this adapter instead of common prop adapters usually bundled with motor accessories to avoid performance robbing, vibrations and motor mount structural damage).

iPAs Power:
The Power package includes

  • •    Ultimate AMR 60
  • •    PA Thrust 60R outrunner motor with RotorKool Technology
  • •    PA Quantum 70A High performance Programmable ESC with HV SBEC
  • •    CNC machined precision prop adapter (We decided to include this adapter instead of common prop adapters usually bundled with motor accessories to avoid performance robbing, vibrations and motor mount structural damage).

What is iPAs?  – Integrated Performance Airframe-Drive System

NO COMPROMISES, NO MODS, NO HASSLE
THIS IS THE REAL DEAL:   PERFORMANCE OUT OF BOX

WHAT YOU SEE IN OUR VIDEOS IS WHAT YOU GET WITH iPAs

Unlike glow aircraft where it is mostly the matter of bolting on a specific size engine, the options for electric flight gear are simply overwhelming and matching electric gear to an airframe is a complex task for the average modeler and quite often can be very confusing.

Most manufacturers direct their customers to acquire a “compatible” motor and ESC or at best offer a “Combo” package that comprises of off-the-shelf motors and ESC that would, in theory “fit” within the model’s power requirements.

Surveys we conducted showed that each and every EP models flyer experienced at least one if not more of the problems below

  • • Unpredictable handling problems caused by reduced wing loading due to over sized motors or battery packs or ancillary gear.
  • • Overheating or unwanted ESC cut outs due to over propping or undersized motors
  • • Handling problems due to drastic shift in CG and overall weight distribution.
  • • Unacceptable flight times due to inefficient “hot” motors or undersized packs
  • • Airframe structural failure due to increased aerodynamic loads caused by over sized drives and packs.
  • • Overheating and swelling of battery packs caused by serious drive mismatched.
  • • Less than optimum motor performance due to incompatibility with the ESC.
  • • Crashes as a result of servo gear failures caused by excessive loads on the control surfaces or exceeding the maximum airspeed limits.
  • • A huge disparity in flight performance observed in the promotional videos against actual aircraft.
  • • Premature Motors, ESC and Battery failures or performance degradation over time due to mismatch setup.
  • • Gear does not properly fit the airframe and requires modifications.

We do not believe modelers should have to live with compromises in flight performances.

Through hundreds of hours of flight testing our airframe designs, we have established that there is a direct correlation between the airframe and drive system and one affects the other with consequences to the desired aerodynamic performance. That meant airframes and drives should not be treated as individual items isolation but as one whole system.

Due to the extreme lengths undertook in the design of the airframe, and the unprecedented flight testing period to finally achieve the aerodynamic characteristics we desired, we felt a complete solution for this airframe was necessary. As a result we have developed our iPAs, PA Integrated Performance Airframe-Drive System.

We embarked on this quest by first carefully selecting each iPAs component, considering each possible aspect. We then started testing each individual component of the iPAs and subsequently on the airframe itself ensuring impacts on the overall flight performance and aerodynamic characteristics caused by each component are identified and addressed and to ensure all iPAs components interact in full synergy as an integrated flight system within the constraints of the design specifications. Each component was then further refined until a perfect match meeting the performance criteria set are successfully achieved.

So, for the first time flyers has the unique opportunity to experience the exact aerodynamic performance as envisaged by our chief designer and team of test pilots minus all the guess work and unnecessary expenses.

Testimonials & Reviews

Bill Hodges
I flew the Ultimate this morning. I absolutely love that plane. We now have three of them in our little group.

 

James MacDonald
Flew 4 packs on it this AM. This plane is absolutely awesome- high alpha and slow flight are a slow walking pace.
I placed the battery a few mm fwd after flying the recommended cg and it’s just perfect.
TP 27006S gave me 4:30- this is throttle timer, so as I fly lots of 3D with power off and the flight lasted me closer to 7 minutes. Packs landed with little over 30%
I don’t see a need to go bigger. I have a 3000 pack I’ll try during the week, just to see….

 

Martin Sputz, Germany
Today I maidened the Ultimate AMR 60. Now, thats a whole new ballgame! Wow, what an amazing airplane! The best yet! And the mounting tech of the wings is just amazing. Goes real quick!

 

Ben Rufli
I have been building flying models since 1956. I have built over 15 of your ARF’s some of them several times. Just wanted to say to Shawn that the AMR 60 is one of the best planes you have put out as far as quality control. Not that there was anything wrong with the other ones but this is definitely a step up. I can’t wait to get the finishing instructions on this model. The quality control is unbelievable on the covering and the fit of everything. The only thing I’ve had to do is a sanding stick very lightly on the elevator to fit into the fuselage. Alignment was perfect.
Thanks again and I hope you are able to enjoy some of the holiday.

 

John Jack, MONROE UT
Excellent quality as what I’ve come to expect from PA. Assembly was straight forward using their detailed instructions. Love how it handles in the air. Precise and goes/stays where you point it even with turbulence that would knock around other planes of similar weight/size (no stabilization). I normally don’t disassemble planes of this size for transport but their wing removal system is so easy I do it to partly just help keep this beauty looking good.

My new favorite bipe!

Vox 15×8:  Provides excellent power for sport flying, 3D and precision flying, and yet is still very capable of high energy maneuvers. It has a slightly faster top speed compared to the 16×8, but offers an easier to manage throttle response. It also offers longer flight times.  Note: Because of the decreased prop diameter, it might provide slightly less prop wash in slow 3D, but it’s light weight gives quick spool up for easy exits out of tumbles, blenders and knife edge spins. Excellent prop for any style of flying. 

 

Vox 15×10:  For those specifically looking for high speed / high energy flying and is also very good for windy days. This prop’s strong point is high energy tumbles. It is still very good for slow 3D but you can expect the throttle response to be slightly sluggish in slow 3D, while the higher pitch gives an impressive top speed. 

 

Vox 16×8: The choice for those looking for the best slow and low 3D performance. It provides maximum prop wash, which means the best control possible during slow 3D and rolling harriers. It is a very good all-around prop, with a slightly slower top speed compared to the other props, but offers excellent 3d stability. It is still very capable of high energy. Please note: The larger diameter creates higher gyroscopic forces, which can make for some really interesting tumbles! 

 

Because these 3 propellers really change the way the plane flies, we recommend getting all 3 to determine which one you like best. During our flight testing we kept switching between these 3 props as they are all excellent choices.
