Me-163B V2 from Durafly

Details

The Durafly Me-163B has been designed for pilots with some experience, it benefits from an incredible flight performance, great stability throughout its speed range, and like the real thing, it is incredibly fast. Aerobatics including huge loops, vertical rolls out of sight, and very fast low passes are easily achievable, yet slow it down and it's very stable, with no hint of a stall. Using the recommended 2200mah 30-65C 4S LiPo battery and the supplied 6x4 prop, you can expect flight times well beyond 5 minutes and an abundance of power. If you love speed and very fast models, then this one is for you, the Komet Me-163 is ballistic, with speeds approaching 100mph.

This latest V2 version of the Durafly Me-163 retains some of the unique features of the original version, with the addition of some new ones. The V2 features a gravity release scale 'dolly' style undercarriage making the take-off procedure less complicated whilst reducing weight. It simply falls away once you pull up into the climb and the weight comes off the model. The take-off dolly has also had its wheelbase widened to improve ground handling.  A magnetic gear release system is available as an optional extra if you require it, this is really only necessary if you fly from a bumpy strip. The V2 Me-163 is a 4S set-up as standard, this has been achieved by a redesign of the center internal fuselage and wing spar system, it has increased the internal capacity and has also further reduced the AUW of the model. However, the versatility of the power system remains, you can still fly the Komet on a 3S battery if you wish with no change needed to the power system. Even on a 3S set-up, the Komet is no slouch, it is still very fast and a lot of fun. The V2 color scheme is based on the Me-163B "White 10" as flown by Lt. Hans-Ludwig Löscher of 1./JG 400, Brandis, in Germany.

Being "Plug N Fly", the motor, ESC, and servos are pre-installed and ready to hook up to your choice of receiver. The molded EPO construction has a highly detailed finish on the outside, and extensive carbon reinforcement internally. Other features are a color-matched hard plastic belly skid, good access to all electronics via the battery/canopy hatch, and excellent cooling throughout.


For those of you looking for the ultimate scale experience, the optional rocket system adds a really cool element, and it is a simple drop-in affair, see the manual for details. At the flick of a switch, this will give the Komet a thrilling boost, realistic white smoke pouring out of the back, and an exhilarating vertical climb-out.

  • Plug N Fly format with pre-installed motor, ESC, and servos
  • Gravity release dolly style undercarriage
  • Ready for the drop-in optional rocket motor system
