SAFE technology
 

Discover to Fly Successfully with SAFE® Technology
If this is your very first RC airplane, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensing Unit Helped Flight Envelope) innovation avoids over-control and crashes. It likewise provides multiple flight modes to provide more control and abilities as your skills advance at the flip of a switch:

Newbie Mode

In this flight mode, the airplane has pitch (up/down) and bank (left/right) angle limits that prevent over-control which could lead to a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released, the airplane instantly goes back to level flight permitting you to unwind and enjoy simply 'steering' the airplane through the sky. Best of all, launches are as basic as giving complete throttle and letting the airplane fly off a suitable surface, or by giving it a quick hand launch over surfaces such as lawn, and landings are as simple as reducing the throttle and letting it glide to a landing on its own.

Beginner Mode
 

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode permits more liberty in pitch and bank, but still avoids significant over-control and the airplane does not go back to level flight on its own. This permits you to make tighter turns and to climb and come down faster as your skills advance.

Intermediate Mode
 

Skilled Mode

In this flight 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.

Experienced Mode
 

 

Panic Healing

If you lose control of the airplane in the Intermediate or Skilled flight modes, simply activate the Panic Healing mode with the push of a button and launch the control sticks. SAFE innovation will instantly return the airplane to level flight.

 Great beginner to intermediate small plane
By David H on January 4, 2021

Binded fine with my Spektrum. I think it is the customers responsibility to determine if what they are buying is compatible with their transmitter. Anyway, it flies awesome, so easy and intuitive. Flies slowly very well and is a great plane for beginners. My Dad is 75, had never flown RC and was having a blast with this after a couple of hours of crashes on grass that didn't harm the plane.

 Does not bind to DSM2
By Tedd H on September 28, 2020   Verified Purchase

The Sport Cub seems like a great plane but would not bind to my Orangerx T-SIX DSM2 transmitter. Vortex hobbies was extremely helpful and traded it for a PT-17 that binded as advertised.

 Great beginner plane. Don't need to worry if you crash too much.
By Easton S on March 20, 2021   Verified Purchase

Don't be stupid like me and keep your eyes on your plane at all times while flying. I did a nose dive and broke a prop and the gearbox, but that's no issue with the plane, in fact, it took the hit like a chap and the entire chassis is fine otherwise. SAFE works incredibly well and it's great for a new pilot. Highly recommend
