When the Conscendo® was very first introduced it was tailored towards RC newcomers who wished to teach themselves how to fly with a powered glider. A couple of years later an "Advanced" version that offered more power for soaring, sport flying and aerobatics ended up being a favorite of many intermediate and experienced pilots alike. Now the E-flite® Conscendo Development 1.5m progresses the style to be the most powerful, capable and enjoyable to fly Conscendo yet! A more powerful and stiffer airframe formed from higher density EPO integrates with the more powerful THREE and 4S suitable power system featuring a telemetry-capable ESC to deliver higher speeds and more aerobatic efficiency — while offering the very same smooth sport flying and soaring abilities the Conscendo has constantly been understood for.

Product Introduce Video



Progressed to be the most powerful, capable and enjoyable to fly Conscendo® yet for soaring, sport flying, high speeds and high energy aerobatics

Greater density EPO leads to a stronger and stiffer airframe efficient in more aerobatic efficiency and higher speeds

More powerful THREE and 4S suitable brushless power system with outrunner motor and folding prop

30A telemetry-capable ESC offers real-time battery voltage, existing, motor RPM and other data (through suitable receivers and transmitters)

Long flight times as much as 15-20+ minutes with a mix of power on/off flying using THREE 1300–2200mah or 4S 1000–2200mAh batteries

4-channel control including ailerons with 4 (4) factory-installed servos and linkages

Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver with full-range telemetry and industry-leading DSMX® innovation (BNF® Fundamental version only)

Easy to fly with ingenious and optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope security (BNF Fundamental version only)

The unequaled stability and locked-in feel of unique AS3X® innovation (BNF Fundamental version only)

Easy to release, fly and land, making it a best option for a very first powered sailplane model

Lightweight yet long lasting composite-reinforced, high-density EPO building

Easy to install/remove two-piece wing and stabs

Fast and easy assembly – no glue needed

This is the most powerful, capable, and enjoyable to fly Conscendo® yet! With the advantages of E-flite® engineering know-how, the Conscendo Development 1.5m powered glider is now better geared up to supply} higher speeds and even higher energy aerobatic efficiency — yet it's still as easy and enjoyable to sport fly and skyrocket as ever before. With a THREE LiPo battery, the factory-installed brushless power system — featuring a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC, specially-tuned outrunner motor and folding prop — provides plenty of thrust for fast reaches soaring elevation, sport flying and aerobatics. Utilizing a FOUR battery, it provides a lot more speed and thrust for endless vertical efficiency without the need for modifications or upgrades. The new higher density EPO airframe has the additional strength and stiffness to handle anything an intermediate to experienced pilot will wish to make with all that power, efficiency and complete 4-channel control. Yet the Conscendo Development is still easy to release, fly and land — especially the BNF® Fundamental version geared up with a Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver featuring unique AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select innovations — which makes it the perfect option for a first powered glider. Flight prepared in less time than it takes to charge a battery, the Conscendo Development uses a vast array of pilots a unique flying experience that no other model can provide.

Flight Talk



More Capable

More Capable
Building and construction with higher density EPO leads to a stronger and stiffer airframe with a smoother finish. Combined with carbon and other composite reinforcement in the fuselage, wings and tails, the Conscendo® Development can handle higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics – yet is still light-weight to deliver excellent soaring and sport flying efficiency, plus long flight times as much as 15-20+ minutes with a mix of power on and power off flying.

More Power

More Power
The factory-installed brushless power system features a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC plus a specially-tuned motor and folding prop that deliver an abundance of thrust with a THREE LiPo battery, or more speed and endless vertical efficiency with a FOUR battery without the need for any modifications or upgrades.

Telemetry Capable

Telemetry Capable
The Conscendo® Development 1.5m is geared up with an ESC that can supply a range of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, existing, battery voltage and more through suitable receivers (including the AR637TA set up in the BNF® Fundamental version) and Spektrum™ AirWare™ geared up transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.

Easy Assembly

Easy Assembly
No glue is needed for last assembly. You can have the Conscendo® Development prepared to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. It's likewise easy to set up and get rid of the two-piece wing and stabs for convenient storage and transport.

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Benefit
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make entering into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver set up so all you require to do is bind the receiver to a suitable transmitter, complete any last assembly, and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is geared up with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Synthetic Stabilization–3-aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is an increased sense of stability and accuracy that makes you feel like you're flying a much bigger, skillfully tuned aircraft.

If this is your very first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of security while acquainting yourself with the airplane, you can allow the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope security innovation constructed into the receiver. No programming is needed. Just change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select allowed, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope restricts keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They likewise avoid excessive climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling
The airplane quickly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are launched and in the center position. It's likewise helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Change Project—No Complex Programs Required
The easy procedure for designating a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off doesn't require any complex programming and takes simply a couple of seconds.

If you don't wish to allow the SAFE Select functions, simply bind the receiver generally and it will operate like a standard AS3X receiver.
