The Eflite Apprentice and its Features
The E-flite Apprentice S 15e RTF airplane is the most intelligent RC airplane ever offered by Horizon Hobby. At its heart is groundbreaking SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that makes RC flight incredibly easy, even for the least experienced user. Its combination of spatial awareness provides flight envelope protection which adds a degree of security never before available, while its smooth flight capability battles windy conditions so that all you feel is control thats crisp and responsive. Multiple levels of flight envelope protection are provided that can be reduced or removed as your skills progress, yet the panic feature is always there to instantly return the model to level flight if you ever lose orientation.
Requiring just minutes to assemble, youll appreciate how its quiet brushless power system delivers outstanding performance with long, enjoyable flights. Plus its built to last from lightweight Z-Foam material thats tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. After youve mastered the basics of flight, the Apprentice S is capable of performing a complement of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls, and even inverted flight. You can also turn the Apprentice S into a great floatplane by simply adding the specially designed E-flite Apprentice S Floats (EFLA550) sold separately.
The Eflite RC Apprentice and Your Skill Level
One of the most impressive features of the RC Apprentice plane is the flight envelope protection, an advanced feature that is largely responsible for the Eflite�s reputation as the most intelligent RC airplane the world has yet seen. This flight envelope protection makes it easier for beginners to navigate the plane. It provides multiple levels of protection, which can be reduced as you get better at controlling the aircraft.
