HYPERION ENIGMA 15E THRUST VECTOR 3D ARF BUILD

enigma main

The Hyperion Enigma 15E Thrust Vector 3D plane was released in approximately March 2011. The plane design is unique in that the whole motor mount can be articulated left and right in the same yaw manner a rudder would. This Thrust Vector (TV) design allows the pilot to perform some outrageous maneuvers otherwise not possible without the (TV) designed mount. Extreme knife edge loops and flat spins will be the specialty of the Thrust Vector mount. For those not so adventurous there is another traditional mount included with the kit. Hyperion has since (2014) discontinued this model and it’s available at clearance prices through various vendors.
