SAFE technology
 

Find out to Fly Effectively with SAFE® Technology
If this is your first RC aircraft, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensing Unit Helped Flight Envelope) technology prevents over-control and crashes. It also uses multiple flight modes to provide more control and capabilities as your abilities 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 could lead to a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released, the aircraft immediately goes back to level flight permitting you to relax and delight in merely 'guiding' the aircraft through the sky. Most importantly, takeoffs are as basic as giving complete throttle and letting the aircraft fly off an ideal surface area, or by giving it a fast hand launch over surface areas such as lawn, and landings are as easy as decreasing the throttle and letting it move to a landing by itself.

Beginner Mode
 

Intermediate Mode

This flight mode permits more flexibility in pitch and bank, however still prevents substantial over-control and the aircraft does not return to level flight by itself. This permits you to make tighter turns and to climb up and descend quicker as your abilities advance.

Intermediate Mode
 

Experienced 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 perform 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 immediately return the aircraft 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.
