When the Conscendo® was first introduced it was geared towards RC newcomers who wished to teach themselves how to fly with a powered glider. A few years later on an "Advanced" variation that provided more power for soaring, sport flying and aerobatics ended up being a favorite of lots of intermediate and experienced pilots alike. Now the E-flite® Conscendo Advancement 1.5m evolves the design to be the most effective, capable and enjoyable to fly Conscendo yet! A stronger and stiffer airframe formed from greater density EPO integrates with the more effective 3S and 4S compatible power system featuring a telemetry-capable ESC to deliver greater speeds and more aerobatic performance — while providing the very same smooth sport flying and soaring abilities the Conscendo has actually constantly been understood for.

Evolved to be the most effective, capable and enjoyable 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 performance and greater speeds

More effective 3S and 4S compatible brushless power system with outrunner motor and folding prop

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

Long flight times as much as 15-20+ minutes with a mix of power on/off flying utilizing 3S 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 variation just)

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

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

Easy to introduce, fly and land, making it a best option for a first powered sailplane design|design}

Light-weight yet durable composite-reinforced, high-density EPO construction

Easy to install/remove two-piece wing and stabs

Quick and easy assembly – no glue needed

This is the most effective, capable, and enjoyable to fly Conscendo® yet! With the benefits of E-flite® engineering proficiency, the Conscendo Advancement 1.5m powered glider is now better equipped to supply} greater speeds and even greater energy aerobatic performance — yet it's still as easy and enjoyable to sport fly and soar as ever before. With a 3S 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 climbs to soaring elevation, sport flying and aerobatics. Using a 4S battery, it provides much more speed and thrust for limitless vertical performance without the requirement for adjustments or upgrades. The brand-new greater density EPO airframe has the additional strength and tightness to handle anything an intermediate to experienced pilot will wish to finish with all that power, performance and full 4-channel control. Yet the Conscendo Advancement is still easy to introduce, fly and land — particularly the BNF® Standard variation equipped with a Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver featuring special AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select innovations — which makes it the ideal option for a first powered glider. Flight prepared in less time than it takes to charge a battery, the Conscendo Advancement provides a large range of pilots a unique flying experience that no other model can provide.

Flight Talk



More Capable

More Capable
Construction with greater density EPO results in a more powerful and stiffer airframe with a smoother finish. Combined with carbon and other composite reinforcement in the fuselage, wings and tails, the Conscendo® Advancement can handle greater speeds and greater energy aerobatics – yet is still lightweight to deliver excellent soaring and sport flying performance, 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 includes a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC plus a specially-tuned motor and folding prop that deliver an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and limitless vertical performance with a 4S battery without the requirement for any adjustments or upgrades.

Telemetry Capable

Telemetry Capable
The Conscendo® Advancement 1.5m is equipped with an ESC that can supply a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, existing, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR637TA installed in the BNF® Standard variation) and Spektrum™ AirWare™ equipped 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® Advancement prepared to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. It's also easy to set up and get rid of the two-piece wing and stabs for convenient storage and transportation.

SAFE technology

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

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

If this is your first model of its type, or you desire an additional margin of security while acquainting yourself with the airplane, you can allow the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology constructed into the receiver. No programming is needed. Just alter the binding series as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

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

Automatic Self-Leveling
The airplane quickly goes back to and holds level flight when the sticks are launched and in the center position. It's also practical for keeping the wings level throughout takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Shows Required
The easy procedure for appointing a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds.

If you don't wish to allow the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver usually and it will work like a basic AS3X receiver.

Rated 5 stars Your hangar needs one of these !!!
By Jeff E on July 26, 2022   Verified Purchase

Awesome plane! Super easy to assemble and fly. I thought it was great on 3S then I flew it 4S - wow. I use a 2200 mAh 3s and an 1800 mAh 4S because they are the same weight and I don’t have to adjust the CG.
