SAFE technology

Find out to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Innovation
If this is your very first RC plane, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Helped Flight Envelope) innovation avoids over-control and crashing while also using numerous flight modes to provide more control and capabilities as your abilities progress:

Novice Mode

In this flight mode, the plane has pitch and bank angle limits to avoid over-control that can lead to a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released, the plane immediately returns to level flight on its own allowing you to relax and enjoy just 'guiding' the plane through the sky. This flight mode also makes it easier to remove and land.

Novice Mode

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode enables more freedom in pitch and bank, however still avoids significant over-control and the plane does not return to level flight on its own. This enables you to make tighter turns and to climb and descend faster as your abilities advance. Likewise, Novice Mode immediately triggers and returns the plane to level flight when it comes down below approximately 30 feet above ground level and the control sticks are released.

Intermediate Mode

Skilled Mode

In Skilled Mode there are no pitch or bank angle limits so you have total 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 switching to Novice Mode and launching the control sticks.

Experienced Mode


Panic Healing

If you lose control of the plane in the Intermediate or Skilled flight modes, merely switch to Novice Mode and launch the control sticks. SAFE innovation will immediately return the plane to level flight.

Panic Recovery


SAFE technology

Easily Upgrade to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Innovation
With quick and simple setup of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can include next-level self-governing assistance functions that make it even easier 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 approach to arrive at its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even provide some directional assistance to prevent barriers or to adjust the approach while letting the system do the rest to carry out a safe landing. As your abilities progress and you get more confidence you can take over more of the control inputs, eventually discovering to land without any assistance from the automated system at all.


Holding Pattern

This extremely valuable SAFE Plus-exclusive function basically enables 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 till the command is cancelled with another quick press of the button. It's a fantastic method to safely hand the controls off to a friend or to gain back visual contact if you ever lose sight of the design.

Holding Pattern

Virtual Fence

It's simple to accidentally let an RC plane fly too far away, however with Virtual Fence, stress no more. It creates an unnoticeable border the plane won't fly past. When the plane reaches this border, it will immediately 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.
