It should come as no surprise, but already 2017 is shaping up to be a terrific
year in RC! Our editors looked at all of the new planes, drones and gear in
store for the new year and then chose our favorites to showcase here. We
hope this rundown gets you as excited about 2017 as we are!
Lightweight construction, a long 78.3-inch wingspan, and
efficient aerodynamics give the Opterra a wide range
of capabilities, which include everything from sport
aerobatics to soaring. It can even carry a GoPro or similar
camera to record HD video. Made out of Z-Foam reinforced
with carbon fiber, the Bind-N-Fly version comes with a
Spektrum AS3X receiver with SAFE Select flight envelope
and costs $229.99; the Plug-N-Play version costs $199.99.
