It arrives mostly factory-assembled and ready to fly right out of the box, including a factory-installed control unit featuring a Spektrum™ receiver equipped with exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select technologies. It’s ready to bind to your 5+ channel DSMX®/DSM2® equipped transmitter, plus you’ll receive real-time telemetry data, including overall battery voltage, current, and more with Smart and non-Smart batteries when using compatible Spektrum radios featuring AirWare™ software. Twin 40mm fans and brushless outrunner motors are compatible with affordable and common 4S 2200mAh 30+C batteries while delivering an excellent blend of performance and flight times. The fully-molded EPO airframe features panel lines and other scale surface details, along with plastic-reinforced fuselage chines plus composite reinforcements in the nose and throughout to make it extremely durable while also keeping it lightweight. A rubber nose cone with pitot tube and the vertical fins – including an additional set of optional-use red painted fins that offer improved visibility – snap into place for easy removal/replacement. The fixed landing gear plus steerable nose wheel, featuring tires that replicate the look of the unique aluminum-infused tires used on the full-scale aircraft, make it possible to taxi, takeoff, and land on smooth surfaces. You can also fly without the landing gear installed for more speed and vertical performance while utilizing the molded-in finger grips and automatic Hand Launch Assist Mode for easy hand launching over and landings on grass. Either way, the E-flite SR-71 Blackbird Twin 40mm delivers an incomparable flying experience you simply can’t get with any other RC model!

Skill Level 3 – Experience Required


With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits

  • These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling

  • The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It's also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required

  • The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds. For models like this one, SAFE Select is automatically assigned to channel 5 (Gear) so you can turn it on an off with any switch assigned to that channel (switch A by default on most Spektrum computer transmitters).
