Exclusive Technologies

Exclusive Technologies
This is the very first high-performance F-18 Hornet model equipped with unique Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select innovations. AS3X works behind the scenes to ravel the results of wind and turbulence to provide a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much bigger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select uses pitch and bank angle limitations along with automated self-leveling that can be switched on and off at the flip of a switch, making this a much easier to fly Hornet than there's ever been prior to! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, merely bind the receiver usually and just AS3X will be active.

SAFE technology

Bind-N-Fly Completion Level Benefit
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible much easier than ever. They come out of package 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, finish any final assembly, and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization–3–aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the results of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you seem like you're flying a much bigger, skillfully tuned aircraft.

If this is your very first model 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 security technology developed into the receiver. No programs is required. Just alter the binding sequence 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 immediately 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 during takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Change Project - No Programs Required
The easy treatment for appointing a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any programs and takes just a few seconds.

If you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver usually and it will function like a basic AS3X receiver.
