SAFE technology

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

Beginner Mode

In this flight mode, the aircraft has pitch and bank angle limitations to avoid over-control that can result in a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released, the aircraft instantly goes back to level flight on its own allowing you to unwind and delight in just 'guiding' the aircraft through the sky. This flight mode also makes it easier to take off and land.

Beginner Mode

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode enables more flexibility in pitch and bank, however still avoids significant over-control and the aircraft does not return to level flight on its own. This enables you to make tighter turns and to climb and come down much faster as your skills advance. Also, Beginner Mode instantly triggers and returns the aircraft to level flight when it descends listed below roughly 30 feet above ground level and the control sticks are released.

Intermediate Mode

Experienced Mode

In Experienced Mode there are no pitch or bank angle limitations 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 Healing can be triggered by changing to Beginner Mode and releasing the control sticks.

Experienced Mode


Panic Healing

If you lose control of the aircraft in the Intermediate or Experienced flight modes, simply switch to Beginner Mode and release the control sticks. SAFE innovation will instantly return the aircraft to level flight.

Panic Recovery


SAFE technology

Quickly Upgrade to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Technology
With fast and simple installation of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can add next-level self-governing guidance features that make it even easier to learn to fly. With SAFE Plus included you get:


Activated by simply holding down a button, the advanced AutoLand function puts the aircraft on a stabilized approach to land on its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even offer some directional guidance to avoid barriers or to change the approach while letting the system do the rest to perform a safe landing. As your skills development and you gain more confidence you can take over more of the control inputs, ultimately learning to land without any help from the automated system at all.


Holding Pattern

This really useful SAFE Plus-exclusive feature essentially enables you to "pause" the flight by putting the aircraft into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When triggered with the fast press of a button, the aircraft will instantly return to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle until the command is cancelled with another fast press of the button. It's a fantastic method to safely hand the controls off to a buddy or to gain back visual contact if you ever lose sight of the design.

Holding Pattern

Virtual Fence

It's simple to mistakenly let an RC aircraft fly too far away, however with Virtual Fence, stress no more. It produces an undetectable limit the aircraft won't fly past. When the aircraft reaches this limit, it will instantly reverse and fly back toward the GPS initialization point. Then it will "wag" the wings to let you understand when you have control once again.
