SAFE technology
 

Find out to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Technology
If this is your first RC aircraft, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology avoids over-control and crashes. It also provides several flight modes to deliver more control and abilities as your skills advance at the flip of a switch:

Novice Mode

In this flight mode, the aircraft has pitch (up/down) and bank (left/right) angle limits that prevent over-control which might lead to a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released, the aircraft instantly returns to level flight enabling you to unwind and take pleasure in merely 'guiding' the aircraft through the sky. Most importantly, departures are as basic as offering full throttle and letting the aircraft fly off an appropriate surface area, or by offering it a fast hand launch over surface areas such as turf, and landings are as easy as reducing the throttle and letting it glide to a landing by itself.

Beginner Mode
 

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode enables more freedom in pitch and bank, but still avoids considerable over-control and the aircraft does not return to level flight by itself. This enables you to make tighter turns and to climb and descend quicker as your skills advance.

Intermediate Mode
 

Experienced Mode

In this flight mode there are no pitch or bank angle limitations so you have total control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and carry out aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns and more.

Experienced Mode
 

 

Panic Recovery

If you lose control of the aircraft in the Intermediate or Experienced flight modes, merely activate the Panic Recovery mode with the push of a button and release the control sticks. SAFE technology will instantly return the aircraft to level flight.

Rated 5 stars 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.

Rated 5 stars 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

Rated 2 stars 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.
