This is the Flex Innovations Flex Jet Thrust Vector Super PNP Electric Airplane, one of the most capable and highest performing EDFs on the market. With an updated power system and a 2-axis thrust vectoring nozzel, the FlexJet Thrust Vector is capable of some serious acrobatics.
The FlexJet TV is designed by the Flex Innovations team including Top Gun Champion and internationally known jet designer David Ribbe with aerodynamic collaboration from F3A World Champion Quique Somenzini. The construction is EPO foam with multiple carbon spars and joiner tubes in the wings and tail surfaces, with plywood used where required.
The Aura 8 advanced flight control system offers a refined 3-axis gyro to make the FlexJet TV fly as if it were bigger and flying in less wind. Due to its advanced implementation, it will feel like there is nothing in the way of the pilot! The Aura also allows the FlexJet TV to be delivered with advanced expertly tuned features and parameters already in place. An example of this is the secondary control mode which applies separate gyro settings to the thrust vectoring nozzle, while the flight surfaces still retain separate gyro settings needed for optimum performance.
These features all combine to offer a jet that is impressive in its class with unbeatable performance.

The FlexJet TV has approximately 90% more power than the original FlexJet while remaining very lightweight. This excess power is intended for up-lines and post-stall (3D) maneuvers ONLY. Because of this, the pilot is required to limit the speed of the aircraft and the G-load on the aircraft.
- Powered dives are not permitted
- Extended level flight at full throttle is not permitted
- High-Speed and/or High-G maneuvers are not permitted
- Flying in wind speeds or gusts greater than 20mph (32km/h) is not permitted
Over-speeding or over-stressing the aircraft can result in structural failure and a crash, which may also cause property damage or injury.
