When the Conscendo® was first introduced it was geared towards RC newbies who wished to teach themselves how to fly with a powered glider. A couple of years later on an "Advanced" variation that offered more power for skyrocketing, sport flying and aerobatics ended up being a favorite of lots of intermediate and skilled pilots alike. Now the E-flite® Conscendo Evolution 1.5m evolves the design to be the most powerful, capable and enjoyable to fly Conscendo yet! A more powerful and stiffer airframe formed from greater density EPO integrates with the more powerful THREE and FOUR compatible power system including a telemetry-capable ESC to provide greater speeds and more aerobatic performance — while offering the very same smooth sport flying and skyrocketing capabilities the Conscendo has always been known for.

Product Introduce Video



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

Higher density EPO leads to a stronger and stiffer airframe capable of more aerobatic performance and greater speeds

More powerful THREE and FOUR compatible brushless power system with outrunner motor and folding propeller

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

Long flight times up to 15-20+ minutes with a mix of power on/off flying utilizing THREE 1300–2200mah or FOUR 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® innovation (BNF® Basic variation just)

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

The unmatched stability and locked-in feel of exclusive AS3X® innovation (BNF Basic variation just)

Easy to introduce, fly and land, making it a perfect choice for a first powered sailplane design

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

Easy to install/remove two-piece wing and stabs

Quick and simple assembly – no glue required

This is the most powerful, capable, and enjoyable to fly Conscendo® yet! With the advantages of E-flite® engineering proficiency, the Conscendo Evolution 1.5m powered glider is now better equipped to {provide} greater speeds and even greater energy aerobatic performance — yet it's still as simple and enjoyable to sport fly and skyrocket as ever previously. 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 — delivers plenty of thrust for quick reaches skyrocketing altitude, sport flying and aerobatics. Using a FOUR battery, it delivers a lot more speed and thrust for unlimited vertical performance without the requirement for adjustments or upgrades. The new greater density EPO airframe has the extra strength and tightness to handle anything an intermediate to skilled pilot will want to make with all that power, performance and full 4-channel control. Yet the Conscendo Evolution is still simple to introduce, fly and land — specifically the BNF® Basic variation equipped with a Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver including exclusive 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 takes to charge a battery, the Conscendo Evolution provides a large range of pilots a unique flying experience that no other model can provide.

Flight Talk



More Capable

More Capable
Building and construction with greater 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® Evolution can handle greater speeds and greater energy aerobatics – yet is still light-weight to provide excellent skyrocketing and sport flying performance, plus long flight times up to 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 unlimited vertical performance with a FOUR battery without the requirement for any adjustments or upgrades.

Telemetry Capable

Telemetry Capable
The Conscendo® Evolution 1.5m is equipped with an ESC that can offer a variety of real-time power system related telemetry information including motor RPM, existing, battery voltage and more through compatible receivers (including the AR637TA set up in the BNF® Basic 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 required for final assembly. You can have the Conscendo® Evolution prepared to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. It's also simple to set up and eliminate the two-piece wing and stabs for practical storage and transport.

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Conclusion Level Benefit
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the very best control experience possible simpler than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver set up so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic design is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver including AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) innovation that works behind the scenes to smooth out the results of wind and turbulence. The outcome 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 first design of its type, or you desire an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the aircraft, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope defense innovation built into the receiver. No shows is required. Merely change up the binding series as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select made it possible for, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
These envelope limits keep the aircraft from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

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

Easy Switch Project—No Complex Shows Required
The basic treatment for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off doesn't need any complicated shows and takes just a few seconds.

If you do not want to enable the SAFE Select functions, just bind the receiver typically and it will work like a standard AS3X receiver.
