Apprentice STS 1.5m





Introduction
The E-flite® Apprentice® STS 1.5m is based on among the best platforms ever created for finding out to fly radio controlled (RC) planes—the legendary Apprentice S 15e. That model's large size made it an ideal option for much better visibility and the capability to deal with more wind while finding out to fly at an RC club flying field, and its inherently steady style plus special SAFE® (Sensor Helped Flight Envelope) technology made it simple to fly effectively—especially with the aid of an instructor. The Apprentice STS 1.5m is a modern-day advancement of the world's favorite club trainer that includes all the same excellent features while including Smart elements including an ESC, battery and battery charger (battery and battery charger offered independently for the BNF® Fundamental version), in addition to the option to add SAFE Plus® GPS-enabled technology and the brand new Landing Assist Sensing unit (LAS), to make finding out to fly much easier—and more enjoyable—than ever before!

Overview
E-flite® took the world's favorite club trainer and made it SMARTER with the Apprentice® STS 1.5m. Based on among the best platforms ever created for finding out to fly radio controlled (RC) planes, its large size and 1.5 meter (59.0 inch) wingspan uses much better visibility and the capability to deal with more wind while finding out to fly at an RC club flying field. Its inherently steady style plus SAFE® (Sensor Helped Flight Envelope) technology featuring Beginner, Intermediate and Skilled flight modes makes it simple to fly effectively, especially with the aid of an instructor. The addition of special Spektrum™ Smart elements including a lithium polymer (LiPo) battery and battery charger make it more convenient to charge effectively and securely (battery and battery charger offered independently for the BNF® Fundamental version). And most importantly it now has the option to update to SAFE Plus GPS-enabled technology that uses features such as AutoLand and Virtual Fence, plus the option to install the brand new Landing Assist Sensing unit (LAS) that automatically "flares" for smoother landings, to make finding out to fly—and to land securely—much easier than ever!
The Ready-To-Fly (RTF) version includes everything required to fly in one box, and is the best option if you're a brand-new RC pilot. From the Spektrum DXe 2.4GHz transmitter you can utilize with other Bind-N-Fly® (BNF) and BNF Fundamental airplane after you learn to fly the Apprentice STS, to the 3S 3200mAh Smart LiPo battery that delivers long flight times and the practical S120 USB-C Smart battery charger that can be used with a range of USB power sources, there's nothing additional you need to purchase or provide! A BNF Fundamental version is likewise readily available for knowledgeable pilots and clubs that want to utilize their favorite Spektrum transmitter in addition to batteries and battery chargers they might already own. And for both variations, the effective and effective brushless power system including a Smart ESC, plus the flight controller, receiver and servos, are all factory-installed in the long lasting EPO airframe that puts together quickly and quickly without the need for glue or special tools.
And the enjoyable does not stop after you learn how to fly! In the Skilled Mode, the Apprentice STS 1.5m can performing aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, inverted (upside down) flight and more. You can even install the optional drifts to remove from and arrive at water.
The Apprentice STS 1.5m is the smartest and best club trainer ever, and that makes it best for newbie pilots, experienced pilots that teach others to fly, and for club training programs alike. That's why it's the Official Trainer of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and the very best option for brand-new pilots seeking a bigger trainer that makes it much easier to progress into advanced RC airplanes!

SAFE technology
 

Find out to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Innovation
If this is your first RC plane, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Helped Flight Envelope) technology avoids over-control and crashing while likewise offering numerous flight modes to deliver more control and capabilities as your abilities progress:

Beginner Mode

In this flight mode, the plane has pitch and bank angle limitations to prevent over-control that can result in a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are launched, the plane automatically returns to level flight on its own enabling you to unwind and enjoy just 'guiding' the plane through the sky. This flight mode likewise makes it much easier to remove and land.

Beginner Mode
 

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode permits more flexibility in pitch and bank, but still avoids considerable over-control and the plane does not return to level flight on its own. This permits you to make tighter turns and to climb up and come down faster as your abilities advance. Likewise, Beginner Mode automatically activates and returns the plane to level flight when it comes down listed below around 30 feet above ground level and the control sticks are launched.

Intermediate Mode
 

Skilled Mode

In Skilled Mode there are no pitch or bank angle limitations so you have complete control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns and more. Panic Healing can be activated by changing to Beginner Mode and launching the control sticks.

Experienced Mode
 

 

Panic Healing

If you lose control of the plane in the Intermediate or Skilled flight modes, merely change to Beginner Mode and launch the control sticks. SAFE technology will automatically return the plane to level flight.

Panic Recovery

 

SAFE technology
 

Quickly Upgrade to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Innovation
With fast and simple setup of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can add next-level autonomous assistance features that make it even much easier to learn to fly. With SAFE Plus added you get:

AutoLand

Activated by merely holding down a button, the innovative AutoLand function puts the plane on a stabilized approach to arrive at its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even provide some directional assistance to avoid obstacles or to adjust the approach while letting the system do the rest to perform a safe landing. As your abilities progress and you get more confidence you can take over more of the control inputs, eventually finding out to land without any support from the automatic system at all.

AutoLand
 

Holding Pattern

This very handy SAFE Plus-exclusive function essentially permits you to "pause" the flight by putting the plane into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When activated with the fast press of a button, the plane will automatically return to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle until the command is cancelled with another fast press of the button. It's an excellent way to securely hand the controls off to a good friend or to restore visual contact if you ever lose sight of the model.

Holding Pattern
 

Virtual Fence

It's simple to inadvertently let an RC plane fly too far, but with Virtual Fence, worry no more. It produces an unnoticeable border the plane will not fly past. When the plane reaches this border, it will automatically turn around and fly back towards the GPS initialization point. Then it will "wag" the wings to let you know when you have control again.
