The E-flite® Apprentice® S 15e aircraft is an extraordinary fitness instructor that’s a blast to fly. At its heart is groundbreaking SAFE™ (Sensor Helped Flight Envelope) technology that makes RC flight extremely simple, even for the least skilled user. Its combination of spatial awareness offers flight envelope defense which adds a degree of security never ever before offered, while its smooth flight ability battles windy conditions so that all you feel is control that’s crisp and responsive. Numerous levels of flight envelope defense are supplied that can be reduced or gotten rid of as your abilities development, yet the "panic" feature is constantly there to instantly return the design to level flight if you ever lose orientation.

Requiring just minutes to put together, you’ll appreciate how its quiet brushless power system provides impressive efficiency and long flights. Plus it’s built to last from light-weight Z-Foam™ material that’s tough enough to deal with daily flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. After you’ve mastered the essentials of flight, the Apprentice S 15e can performing a vast array of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls and even inverted flight. If that’s not homage enough to its flexibility, there’s even a specifically designed E-flite Apprentice S Drift Set (sold independently) you can include that turns the Apprentice S 15e into a terrific floatplane.

All you have to fly the Apprentice S 15e immediately is a DSMX compatible transmitter like the Spektrum™ DX6. Besides ease of use, it offers virtually unlimited design memory and voice command/alerts for a level of control and safety that match the Apprentice S 15e perfectly.
