E-flite is a brand of electric R/C aircraft and accessories produced and distributed by Horizon Hobby of Champaign, Illinois, USA.
The brand's fixed-wing aircraft, which are all either ready-to-fly or almost ready-to-fly, are aimed at intermediate to advanced pilots. Choices cover virtually all phases of model aircraft including micro, scale, ducted fan and 3D. Construction is of foam or traditional balsa/ply. A fiberglass model, the Habu 32 electric ducted fan jet, debuted in early 2011.
Helicopters once sold under the E-flite brand as well as newer models are now sold under the Blade Helicopters brand.
Debuting in late 2011 was Horizon Hobby's AS3X technology, a three-axis MEMS stabilization system for micro-sized models. This allows for mini- and micro-sized flybarless helicopters as well as ultra-micro fixed-wing models (or UMX) which perform like much larger models. The UMX Gee Bee R2 shown in the photo at right is just such an example.
