What does RTF/BNF/PNP/ARF mean?

  • RTF: Ready to Fly, by definition RTF means that players do not need to purchase additional parts, that is, the entire set includes remote control, battery, power system... etc. Consumers can play by simply making a combination
  • BNF: Bind-N-Fly, usually refers to the combination that includes reception but no transmission, and you need to find a remote control that can be linked to the frequency. (It means to bring your own remote control)
  • PNP: Plug-N-Play, it means that it includes ESC, motor, flight control, but no receiver. The advantage is that you can choose the remote control and receiver you want.
  • ARF: Almost Ready to Fly, you only need to make a basic combination of the empty aircraft, does not contain any electrical equipment. You must assemble the powertrain and flight control system by yourself.
