SAFE technology

Learn to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Technology
If this is your very first RC aircraft, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) innovation prevents over-control and crashing while also providing multiple flight modes to deliver more control and abilities as your abilities 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 immediately returns to level flight by itself allowing you to unwind and delight in just 'steering' the aircraft through the sky. This flight mode also makes it simpler to remove and land.

Beginner Mode

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode allows more flexibility in pitch and bank, however still prevents significant over-control and the aircraft does not go back to level flight by itself. This allows you to make tighter turns and to climb up and descend faster as your abilities advance. Also, Beginner Mode immediately triggers and returns the aircraft to level flight when it comes down listed below approximately 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 limitations so you have complete control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and carry out aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns and more. Panic Recovery can be activated by changing to Beginner Mode and releasing the control sticks.

Experienced Mode


Panic Recovery

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

Panic Recovery


SAFE technology

Easily Update to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Technology
With fast and easy installation of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can include next-level self-governing assistance functions that make it even simpler to learn to fly. With SAFE Plus added you get:


Activated by just holding down a button, the advanced AutoLand function puts the aircraft on a supported approach to arrive on its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even supply some directional assistance to avoid barriers or to change the approach while letting the system do the rest to carry out a safe landing. As your abilities development and you gain more self-confidence you can take control of more of the control inputs, eventually discovering to land with no assistance from the automatic system at all.


Holding Pattern

This extremely valuable SAFE Plus-exclusive function essentially allows you to "stop briefly" the flight by putting the aircraft into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When activated with the fast press of a button, the aircraft will immediately go back to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle till the command is cancelled with another fast press of the button. It's a great method to securely hand the controls off to a pal or to restore visual contact if you ever lose sight of the design.

Holding Pattern

Virtual Fence

It's easy to mistakenly let an RC aircraft fly too far away, however with Virtual Fence, fret no more. It produces an unnoticeable border the aircraft won't fly past. When the aircraft reaches this border, it will immediately reverse and fly back towards the GPS initialization point. Then it will "wag" the wings to let you know when you have control once again.
