Anaconda PNP - with installed Motor, ESC, and Servos
After months of testing, we are proud to introduce the RMRC Anaconda! The wait is finally over for this highly anticipated air frame. The Anaconda features a twin boom, inverted-V tail pusher design, with FPV flying and amateur aerial photography being its main purpose. It has been described as a "pilot's air frame", meaning that while it maintains excellent stall characteristics, it does not self correct while in a turn. When paired with the Vector OSD and stabilizer, this is the ultimate combination.
We pulled out all of the stops with the Anaconda to make sure to offer the quality product that you have come to expect from RMRC. It was our main objective from the start to offer you the best product possible. From the high quality hardware and control horns, the ultra smooth foam with minimal mould flashing, and graphics designed by the artist known as Chicken Sashimi, we know you will be proud to fly this new air frame.

RcGroups.com Unboxing Video with Jim Graham:
Important Notice! When un-boxing your Anaconda, please check that stereo jacks are glued securely in their housings. We have found a few that were loose as shown below. (9/15/14)
Looking inside the fuselage:
- The Anaconda is not intended for beginners since it does not have self correcting tendencies. Instead, we recommend that beginners start with more gentle airframes such as the Penguin.
- Not intended to be a "belly lander" due to size of prop and camera mounts
- Not designed for hand launching
- Now includes the Green decal kit rather than pictured Orange/Blue
