When the Conscendo® was very 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 an "Advanced" version that used more power for soaring, sport flying and aerobatics ended up being a favorite of numerous intermediate and knowledgeable pilots alike. Now the E-flite® Conscendo Evolution 1.5m evolves the design to be the most effective, capable and enjoyable to fly Conscendo yet! A stronger and stiffer airframe molded from higher density EPO integrates with the more effective 3S and 4S compatible power system featuring a telemetry-capable ESC to deliver higher speeds and more aerobatic efficiency — while using the same smooth sport flying and soaring abilities the Conscendo has always been known for.

Product Launch Video



Developed 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 leads to a stronger and stiffer airframe capable of more aerobatic efficiency and higher speeds

More effective 3S and 4S 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 (by means of compatible receivers and transmitters)

Long flight times as much as 15-20+ minutes with a mix of power on/off flying using 3S 1300–2200mah or 4S 1000–2200mAh batteries

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

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

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

The unrivaled stability and locked-in feel of exclusive AS3X® technology (BNF Basic version only)

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

Light-weight 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 effective, 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 deliver} higher speeds and even higher energy aerobatic efficiency — yet it's still as easy and enjoyable to sport fly and soar as ever previously. 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 — delivers plenty of thrust for quick climbs to soaring elevation, sport flying and aerobatics. Using a FOUR battery, it delivers even more speed and thrust for endless vertical efficiency without the need for adjustments or upgrades. The brand-new higher density EPO airframe has the additional strength and stiffness to deal with anything an intermediate to knowledgeable pilot will want to do with all that power, efficiency and complete 4-channel control. Yet the Conscendo Evolution is still easy to release, fly and land — especially the BNF® Basic version equipped with a Spektrum™ AR637TA receiver featuring exclusive AS3X® and optional-use SAFE® Select innovations — which makes it the perfect option for a very first powered glider. Flight all set in less time than it takes to charge a battery, the Conscendo Evolution offers a vast array of pilots a unique flying experience that no other model can provide.

Flight Talk



More Capable

More Capable
Building with higher density EPO leads to a stronger and stiffer airframe with a smoother finish. Integrated with carbon and other composite support in the fuselage, wings and tails, the Conscendo® Evolution can deal with higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics – yet is still light-weight to deliver exceptional 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 adjustments or upgrades.

Telemetry Capable

Telemetry Capable
The Conscendo® Evolution 1.5m is equipped with an ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry information consisting of motor RPM, existing, battery voltage and more by means of compatible receivers (consisting of the AR637TA installed in the BNF® Basic version) and Spektrum™ AirWare™ equipped transmitters (consisting of 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® Evolution all set to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. It's also easy to install and eliminate the two-piece wing and stabs for convenient storage and transport.

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Conclusion Level Advantage
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) airplane make entering into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible simpler 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 equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to ravel the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and accuracy that makes you seem like you're flying a much larger, skillfully tuned aircraft.

If this is your very first design of its type, or you desire an additional margin of security while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can make it possible for the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No shows is needed. Merely alter the binding series as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

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

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

Easy Change Assignment—No Complex Programs Required
The simple treatment for designating a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off does not require any complex shows and takes simply a few seconds.

If you don't want to make it possible for the SAFE Select functions, simply bind the receiver generally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
