Ares RC Gamma 370 Pro RFR Review

Ares Gamma 370 Pro

Ares has been releasing an increasing number of RC products to the market, from airplanes, helicopters and multi-rotors. The Gamma 370 came out last year and is now offered in a Pro version, complete with aerobatic wing, 4 channels of control and a brushless powerplant. We decided we’d take a look at this “hop-up” version of the already stable Gamma 370 and see how it measures up to our 5×5 review. Take a look at the review videos and see the results!

Summary

Small, convenient, powerful, and durable, the Ares Gamma 370 Pro is one of those extremely handy little planes to keep around. Perfect for large yard flying, the Gamma 370 Pro is at home either at your local park or for those evenings after work when you just want to go flying without all the hassle. It’s flight envelope is wide enough to accommodate lazy 2S flights to wind down with or aggressive 3S flights that will serve up about any aerobatics you can accomplish with a high wing design. With the fore-mentioned flexibility of 7.4V 2S and 11.1V 3S flights, the value for the weekend hobbyist or beginner is extremely high.

The Gamma 370 Pro is an airplane that fits the definition of where we are today with airframe design, foam durability and flight performance. It’s just a great little plane that continues to exhibit no shortcomings for the discerning hobbyist on a budget.

    Hi all. I LOVE the GAMMA. I have a Gamma 370, upgraded with the Brushless Power system. I have not upgraded to the aerobatic wing yet. I like it “yank and bank”, it’s really fun. The only problem I have had with mine, is the Ares props break very easily if the plane noses over on a grass landing. I have switched to APC props and been very happy with their durability. I added an E-flite lighting system to mine, and enjoy flying it into dusk, and after with a flip of the switch. I am thinking about buying a “Pro” and keeping the 370 as a brushless 3 channel. I also upgraded my landing wheels to larger light weight foam wheels for better grass performance, with no noticeable changes to the flight performance! I love this plane. To see how this plane performs with these mods visit my YouTube channel, search Smohl1971.
