SAFE technology

Discover to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Technology
If this is your first RC plane, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) innovation prevents over-control and crashing while also offering multiple flight modes to provide more control and capabilities as your abilities development:

Newbie 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 instantly returns to level flight by itself enabling you to unwind and enjoy just 'steering' the plane through the sky. This flight mode also makes it simpler to take off and land.

Newbie Mode

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode enables more freedom in pitch and bank, however still prevents significant over-control and the plane does not go back to level flight by itself. This enables you to make tighter turns and to climb and descend quicker as your abilities advance. Also, Newbie Mode instantly activates and returns the plane to level flight when it descends listed below around 30 feet above ground level and the control sticks are released.

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 perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns and more. Panic Recovery can be activated by changing to Newbie Mode and releasing the control sticks.

Experienced Mode


Panic Recovery

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

Panic Recovery


SAFE technology

Easily Upgrade to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Technology
With fast and easy setup of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can add next-level self-governing assistance features that make it even simpler to discover to fly. With SAFE Plus included you get:


Triggered by merely holding down a button, the advanced AutoLand function puts the plane on a stabilized technique to arrive at its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even provide some directional assistance to avoid obstacles or to adjust the technique while letting the system do the rest to execute a safe landing. As your abilities development and you gain more self-confidence you can take over more of the control inputs, ultimately learning to land without any assistance from the automatic system at all.


Holding Pattern

This very useful SAFE Plus-exclusive feature basically enables you to "pause" the flight by putting the plane into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When activated with the fast press of a button, the plane will instantly go back to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle up until the command is cancelled with another fast press of the button. It's a terrific method to safely hand the controls off to a buddy or to restore visual contact if you ever forget the design.

Holding Pattern

Virtual Fence

It's easy to accidentally let an RC plane fly too far away, however with Virtual Fence, stress no more. It produces an unnoticeable boundary the plane won't fly past. When the plane reaches this boundary, it will instantly turn around and fly back towards the GPS initialization point. Then it will "wag" the wings to let you know when you have control once again.
