Whether you’ve never flown RC prior to or you got your very first taste of flying with a multirotor drone, the revolutionary Carbon Cub S+ is the most flexible, capable and simplest to fly RC aircraft yet. Based on the Carbon Cub by Cub Crafters, an upgraded and thoroughly contemporary version of the traditional Super Cub, and geared up with Horizon Hobby's special and ingenious SAFE® Plus GPS-enabled drone innovation, this scale recreation makes it much easier to learn how to fly in less time than before. Advanced features including AutoLand, Holding Pattern and Virtual Fence make it easy for nearly anybody to fly successfully from their initial flight, while additional features including oversized tundra tires and optional flaps and drifts offer the ability and adaptability to fly from nearly any surface, anywhere.

SAFE Plus features and functions consist of:

When triggered after holding down a button, the sophisticated AutoLand function puts the Carbon Cub S+ on a stabilized approach to autonomously land near the GPS initialization point. You can even provide some directional guidance to prevent barriers or to adjust the approach while letting the system do the rest to execute a safe landing. As your abilities development and you gain more confidence you can take control of more of the control inputs, eventually learning to land with no support from the automatic system at all.

Holding Pattern
This helpful SAFE Plus special feature lets you essentially "pause" a flight by putting the aircraft into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When triggered after the quick press of a button, the aircraft will automatically go back to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle till the command is cancelled. It's a great method to securely hand the controls to a pal or to restore visual contact if you ever forget the model.

Virtual Fence
It's easy to accidentally let an RC aircraft fly too far, however with Virtual Fence worry no more due to the fact that it develops an invisible boundary the aircraft won't fly past. When the aircraft reaches this boundary it will automatically turn around and fly back toward the GPS initialization point, then it will wag the wings to let you know when you have control again.

Panic Recovery
If you ever lose control of the aircraft in the more advanced control modes just change to Beginner Mode and release the control sticks. SAFE® Plus innovation will automatically return the aircraft to level flight.

Beginner Mode
Pitch and bank angle limitations avoid over-control that can result in a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released the aircraft returns to level flight on its own. Best of all departures are as simple as giving complete throttle and letting the aircraft fly off the ground or by giving it a fast hand launch.

Intermediate Mode
More flexibility in pitch and bank, however still avoids over-control and does not go back to level flight on its own. This mode allows you to make tighter turns and to climb up and descend much faster as your abilities advance. Beginner mode automatically triggers and returns the aircraft to level flight when the aircraft descends below roughly 30 feet above ground level and the sticks are released.

Experienced Mode
No pitch or bank angle limitations so you have total control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and carry out aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns and more. Panic Recovery Mode can be triggered by changing to Beginner Mode and releasing the sticks.
