E-flite Apprentice S 15e RTF Trainer Airplane with SAFE Technology [EFL3100]
The NEW E-Flite Apprentice S 15e RTF is an amazing trainer airplane from Horizon Hobby. They boast that it is the smartest RC airplane they have ever released with its new SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that makes flying easy, even for beginner pilots. This plane has spatial awareness that provides envelope protections adding a new level of security never before seen on an RC airplane. Your controls will feel sharp and reponsive even when facing rough and windy conditions. DON'T PANIC! The panic feature will instantly level off your plane if you ever lose orentation!
This airplane only requires a few minutes of your time to assemble. Once you've assembled your new plane you will be ready to experience long, smooth fights powered by a brushless system. Now you must understand that no plane is 'uncrashable' which is why we built this one with our lightweight Z-Foam material thats tough and can take a beating. After you've mastered the basics with your new plane you can take it to the next level with loops, rolls, and even inverted flights.
