When the Conscendo® was first introduced it was tailored towards RC newbies who wished to teach themselves how to fly with a powered glider. A couple of years later on an "Advanced" version that provided more power for soaring, sport flying and aerobatics became a favorite of many intermediate and skilled pilots alike. Now the E-flite® Conscendo Advancement 1.5m evolves the style to be the most effective, capable and fun to fly Conscendo yet! A more powerful and stiffer airframe formed from greater density EPO combines with the more effective THREE and 4S compatible power system including a telemetry-capable ESC to provide greater speeds and more aerobatic efficiency — while providing the same smooth sport flying and soaring capabilities the Conscendo has constantly been known for.

Product Release Video



Developed to be the most effective, capable and fun to fly Conscendo® yet for soaring, sport flying, high speeds and high energy aerobatics

Higher density EPO results in a more powerful and stiffer airframe capable of more aerobatic efficiency and greater speeds

More effective THREE and 4S compatible brushless power system with outrunner motor and folding prop

30A telemetry-capable ESC offers real-time battery voltage, present, motor RPM and other information (through compatible receivers and transmitters)

Long flight times approximately 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 four (4) factory-installed servos and linkages

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

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

The unmatched stability and locked-in feel of special AS3X® technology (BNF Standard version only)

Easy to launch, fly and land, making it an ideal choice for a first powered sailplane design

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

Easy to install/remove two-piece wing and stabs

Quick and easy assembly – no glue needed

This is the most effective, capable, and fun to fly Conscendo® yet! With the benefits of E-flite® engineering proficiency, the Conscendo Advancement 1.5m powered glider is now better geared up to deliver} greater speeds and even greater energy aerobatic efficiency — yet it's still as easy and fun to sport fly and skyrocket as ever in the past. With a 3S LiPo battery, the factory-installed brushless power system — including a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC, specially-tuned outrunner motor and folding prop — provides plenty of thrust for quick climbs to soaring elevation, sport flying and aerobatics. Using a 4S battery, it provides a lot more speed and thrust for unrestricted vertical efficiency without the requirement for adjustments or upgrades. The brand-new greater density EPO airframe has the additional strength and stiffness to deal with anything an intermediate to skilled pilot will want to finish with all that power, efficiency and complete 4-channel control. Yet the Conscendo Advancement is still easy to launch, fly and land — specifically the BNF® Standard version geared up with a Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver including special AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select innovations — which makes it the perfect choice for a first powered glider. Flight prepared in less time than it requires to charge a battery, the Conscendo Advancement uses a wide variety of pilots a unique flying experience that no other model can provide.

Flight Talk



More Capable

More Capable
Building with greater density EPO results in a more powerful and stiffer airframe with a smoother surface. Integrated with carbon and other composite reinforcement in the fuselage, wings and tails, the Conscendo® Advancement can deal with greater speeds and greater energy aerobatics – yet is still light-weight to provide outstanding soaring and sport flying efficiency, plus long flight times approximately 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 provide an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and unrestricted vertical efficiency with a 4S battery without the requirement for any adjustments or upgrades.

Telemetry Capable

Telemetry Capable
The Conscendo® Advancement 1.5m is geared up with an ESC that can supply a variety of real-time power system related telemetry information including motor RPM, present, battery voltage and more through compatible receivers (including the AR637TA installed in the BNF® Standard 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 final assembly. You can have the Conscendo® Advancement prepared to fly in less time than it requires to charge a battery. It's also easy to set up and remove the two-piece wing and stabs for hassle-free storage and transportation.

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Conclusion Level Benefit
Currently own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make entering the air quickly and with the very best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of package with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a suitable transmitter, complete any final assembly, and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic design is geared up with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver including AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the results of wind and turbulence. The result is an increased sense of stability and precision that makes you seem like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If this is your first design of its type, or you want an additional margin of safety while acquainting yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No shows is needed. Simply alter 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 also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

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

Easy Change Project—No Complex Programming Required
The simple treatment for appointing a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't need any complicated shows and takes simply a couple of seconds.

If you do not want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and it will work like a basic AS3X receiver.
