Bind-N-Fly Conclusion Level Benefit
This Bind-N-Fly® Basic model is equipped with an AS3X® (Synthetic Stabilization–3-aXis) receiver that works behind the scenes to ravel the impacts of wind and turbulence. The outcome is a sense of stability and accuracy that makes you feel like you’re flying a bigger and skillfully tuned aircraft.
If this is your first high-performance scale jet, or you desire an additional margin of safety while acquainting yourself with the airplane, you can allow the optional-use SAFE® Select technology developed into the receiver. No shows is required. Just change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.
With SAFE Select allowed, 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 instantly goes back to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It’s also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs and landings.

Easy Switch Assignment- No Shows Required

The basic treatment for designating a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select functions on and off does not need any shows and takes simply a few seconds.

Exclusive Technologies

Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits together with automated self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch making this the most convenient to fly F-16 model yet!
