    E-Flite Apprentice STS 15e RC plane

    Includes everything you need to get flying

    The Ready to fly version (RTF) of the Apprentice STS 1.5M has everything you need to go flying included in the box. The Spektrum DXE radio system controls the model with precision, whilst the 3s 3200mAh Spektrum smart LiPo delivers long flight times so you can spend more time learning how to fly and less time on the ground! The charging is taken care of bu the Spektrum S120 USB-C smart charger and can be powered from a variety of USB power sources. With the RTF version, you don’t need to purchase any additional item at all! Just build the model, charge the batteries and go flying!

    Once you’ve learned how to fly and moved into the advanced control mode you will find out that the E-flite Apprentice STS 1.5m is a very capable aerobatic model in its own right. Loops, rolls, stall turns and inverted flight are all possible with this model! You can even chuck on some floats for water flying if you like! There’s a reason that the Apprentice has become so popular as a training aircraft, it’s just so easy to fly! With docile tendencies and a fantastic flight envelope, this model will help you learn to fly!

    Beginner Remote Control Plane

    Progressive flight modes

    Beginner Mode:

    In this flight mode, the model has bank and pitch limits to prevent the pilots from over controlling the model and getting into trouble. When you let go of the sticks the model will return to level flight, allowing you to regain composure and go again.

    Intermediate Mode:

    The bank and pitch limits are turned down in this mode, giving you more freedom but still limiting the ability to over control the model, the model will not return to level flight on its own, allowing tighter turns and more general manoeuvrability

    Advanced Mode:

    In this mode it’s all on you! There are no bank or pitch limits and you can do any aerobatic manoeuvres that you like, Panic recovers and still be activated by switching back into beginner mode and releasing the sticks.

    Panic Recovery:

    If you lose control of the model in Intermediate or Advanced mode just simply return the switch to beginner mode and release the sticks. SAFE technology will take over and return the model to straight and level flight.

    Optional SAFE Plus GPS Technology

    With a simple installation of the optional Spektrum GPS Module (sold separately), you can take the flight assistance to the next level. With features like Autoland helping to land the model automatically from the GPS initialization point. The holding pattern feature allows you to essentially pause your flight and place the aircraft into a GPS guided pattern until you feel like taking over again and continuing on flying. Finally, the virtual fence system keeps the model from ever being able to fly too far away and puts up a virtual block than when the model hits this point it turns around and comes back.

See the Flight Talk video here: https://youtu.be/zqSiDzWCeSc The Apprentice STS 1.5m is a modern-day evolution of the world's favorite club trainer that includes all the same great features while adding Smart components including an ESC, battery and charger (battery and charger sold separately for the BNF® Basic version), along with the option to add SAFE Plus® GPS-enabled technology and the all-new Landing Assist Sensor (LAS), to make learning to fly easier—and more fun—than ever before! E-flite® took the world's favorite club trainer and made it SMARTER with the Apprentice® STS 1.5m. Based on one of the very best platforms ever designed for learning to fly radio controlled (RC) airplanes, its large size and 1.5 meter (59.0 inch) wingspan offers better visibility and the ability to handle more wind while learning to fly at an RC club flying field. Its inherently stable design plus SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology featuring Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced flight modes makes it easy to fly successfully, especially with the help of an instructor. The addition of exclusive Spektrum™ Smart components including a lithium polymer (LiPo) battery and charger make it more convenient to charge properly and safely (battery and charger sold separately for the BNF® Basic version). And best of all it now has the option to upgrade to SAFE Plus GPS-enabled technology that offers features such as AutoLand and Virtual Fence, plus the option to install the all-new Landing Assist Sensor (LAS) that automatically "flares" for smoother landings, to make learning to fly—and to land safely—easier than ever! The Ready-To-Fly (RTF) version includes everything needed to fly in one box, and is the perfect choice if you're a new RC pilot. From the Spektrum DXe 2.4GHz transmitter you can use with other Bind-N-Fly® (BNF) and BNF Basic aircraft after you learn to fly the Apprentice STS, to the 3S 3200mAh Smart LiPo battery that delivers long flight times and the convenient S120 USB-C Smart charger that can be used with a variety of USB power sources, there's nothing extra you need to buy or provide! A BNF Basic version is also available for experienced pilots and clubs that want to use their favorite Spektrum transmitter along with batteries and chargers they may already own. And for both versions, the powerful and efficient brushless power system including a Smart ESC, plus the flight controller, receiver and servos, are all factory-installed in the durable EPO airframe that assembles quickly and easily without the need for glue or special tools. And the fun doesn't stop after you learn how to fly! In the Experienced Mode, the Apprentice STS 1.5m is capable of performing aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, inverted (upside down) flight and more. You can even install the optional floats to take off from and land on water. The Apprentice STS 1.5m is the smartest and best club trainer ever, and that makes it perfect for first-time pilots, experienced pilots that teach others to fly, and for club training programs alike. That's why it's the Official Trainer of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and the best choice for new pilots seeking a larger trainer that makes it easier to progress into more advanced RC airplanes!
