The E-Flite Blue Angels F-18 Hornet 80mm Bind-N-Fly Basic Electric Ducted Fan Plus Jet is an exciting replica of the F/A-18 that has served the U.S. Navy Blue Angels since 1986. Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and Northrop, the F/A-18s flown by the Blue Angels are nearly the same as those used by the Navy and Marine Corps as both fighters and attack platforms. The weapons are removed, a smoke-oil tank is installed, and the control stick spring system is adjusted to offer more precise control. 

The E-flite F-18 Blue Angels 80mm EDF provides an exceptional flying experience highlighted by an abundance of Extra Scale details and functional features including LED lights, full-flying stabs, operational flaps and more, while also being factory-finished to pay tribute to the iconic demo team. There are ten factory-installed metal-geared servos in both versions, and you can install the compatible receiver and an 80mm EDF power system — from another similar class model or using other compatible components — of your choice in the ARF Plus version. Or, the BNF Basic version comes factory-equipped with a Spektrum receiver that includes exclusive AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies, along with a V2 12-blade 80mm fan, high-RPM brushless in-runner motor and 100A ESC to deliver fantastic performance with 6S 4000–7000mAh LiPo batteries. This power system also provides better performance and longer flight times than the 6S-compatible power systems used in larger models — plus it offers a turbine-like sound! Constructed of durable, fully-molded EPO material, no glue is required for assembly and it can be ready to fly in less time than other similar class models.
