The HobbyZone Conscendo S Bind-N-Fly Motor Glider makes it easy to earn your your glider wings. Thanks to the lightweight and durable Z-Foam material and 1.5-meter wing, reaching max altitude with the Conscendo S is easy and fun. This intuitive trainer gives you the freedom of 4-channel control and SAFE technology. With SAFE, you have access to multiple flight modes and the ability to instantly return to steady flight with the push of a button using Panic Recovery Mode. Whenever you fly, the brushless Conscendo motor makes it easy to gain altitude while an extended range 2.4GHz connection keeps you searching for thermals, even from afar. Just bind the Conscendo to a Spektrum 2.4Ghz transmitter, launch and climb to your desired altitude, bring down the throttle and watch the propeller fold and you’re ready to catch thermal updrafts. It’s that easy.

HobbyZone Conscendo S Bind-N-Fly Motor Glider Airplane
The Conscendo S is a GREAT beginner sailplane. And the ailerons help to make this able to be a small park flier. The SAFE system combined with AS3X stabilization makes for a very easy plane to fly and glide among the thermals. A wonderful manual comes with it. Assembly is very straight forward.

It's flight performance with my DX6 transmitter is faultless. Just follow the set up instructions in the manual. Binding is super easy as they provide a bind cable in the battery dept. Just plug the provided bind plug in there and you're all set to bind normally.

The battery compartment is on top and easily accessible. Just a press of the button and the hatch cover pops right off. The stock 2S battery can provide over an hour flight time if you can find a couple thermals. Even if just gliding around, a half hour in the air is normal.

Flying is a dream. Can fly as fast, or as slow as you want. Will thermal on a mouse belch. Will glide forever. Flies easily in winds up to 20 MPH. If you want aerobatics, just flip the switch to "experienced" mode. Rolls, loops, inverted, easily possible.

About the only caution would be to make sure you have plenty of room to land her. She loves to glide. And as such, resists landing. Especially if there is a ground effect uplift present.)
