SAFE technology

Find out to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Technology
If this is your first RC plane, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) innovation avoids over-control and crashing while also providing several flight modes to provide more control and abilities as your skills development:

Newbie Mode

In this flight mode, the plane has pitch and bank angle limits to prevent over-control that can result in a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are launched, the plane immediately goes back to level flight by itself allowing you to relax and take pleasure in simply 'guiding' the plane through the sky. This flight mode also makes it simpler to remove and land.

Newbie Mode

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode permits more liberty in pitch and bank, but still avoids significant over-control and the plane does not return to level flight by itself. This permits you to make tighter turns and to climb up and come down quicker as your skills advance. Likewise, Newbie Mode immediately triggers and returns the plane to level flight when it descends listed below approximately 30 feet above ground level and the control sticks are launched.

Intermediate Mode

Knowledgeable Mode

In Knowledgeable Mode there are no pitch or bank angle limits so you have complete control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and carry out aerobatic maneuvers consisting of loops, rolls, stall turns and more. Panic Recovery can be triggered by switching to Newbie Mode and launching the control sticks.

Experienced Mode


Panic Recovery

If you lose control of the plane in the Intermediate or Knowledgeable flight modes, merely change to Newbie Mode and release the control sticks. SAFE innovation will immediately return the plane to level flight.

Panic Recovery


SAFE technology

Quickly Upgrade to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Technology
With quick and simple setup of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can include next-level autonomous guidance functions that make it even simpler to discover to fly. With SAFE Plus added you get:


Activated by merely holding down a button, the innovative AutoLand function puts the plane on a stabilized technique to arrive at its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even offer some directional guidance to avoid obstacles or to change the technique while letting the system do the rest to execute a safe landing. As your skills development and you get more self-confidence you can take control of more of the control inputs, eventually learning to land without any help from the automatic system at all.


Holding Pattern

This really valuable SAFE Plus-exclusive feature essentially permits you to "pause" the flight by putting the plane into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When triggered with the quick press of a button, the plane will immediately return to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle up until the command is cancelled with another quick press of the button. It's an excellent way to safely hand the controls off to a friend or to gain back visual contact if you ever lose sight of the model.

Holding Pattern

Virtual Fence

It's simple to unintentionally let an RC plane fly too far away, but with Virtual Fence, stress no more. It creates an unnoticeable limit the plane will not fly past. When the plane reaches this limit, it will immediately reverse and fly back toward the GPS initialization point. Then it will "wag" the wings to let you understand when you have control again.
