The E-flite Apprentice S 15e RTF airplane is the most intelligent RC airplane ever offered by E-flite. You get groundbreaking SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that makes RC flight incredibly easy, even for the least experienced user. This combination of spatial awareness provides that adds never before available flight envelope protection, while its smooth flight capability battles windy conditions so that all you feel is control that’s crisp and responsive. Multiple levels of flight envelope protection are provided that can be reduced or removed as your skills progress, yet the “panic” feature is always there to instantly return the model to level flight if you ever lose orientation.

Requiring just minutes to assemble, you’ll appreciate how its quiet brushless power system delivers outstanding performance with long, enjoyable flights. Plus it’s built to last from lightweight Z-Foam material that’s tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. After you’ve mastered the basics of flight, the Apprentice S is capable of performing a complement of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls, and even inverted flight. You can also turn the Apprentice S into a great floatplane by simply adding the optional, specially designed E-flite Apprentice S Floats (sold separately).

Hands down, the best trainer you can buy. If you are thinking of learning to fly RC airplanes, you can’t go wrong with this one. Great performance, selectable skill modes and a panic button make this plane the best out there. Even though this plane is easy to fly, It’s still a good idea to join a club and have someone teach you. At every club I’ve ever been to, there was always someone that would give you a couple of lessons. With this plane that’s all you need.

This thing is great!
After 24 years away from the aircraft addiction this was a way-too-easy way to step right back in. It's super easy to fly and very forgiving. Assembly time was minimal, though I had to power it up and center all the control surfaces (and steering) once the servos were online and at center. Once the kinks were worked out, it practically flies itself. It leaps right off the ground and goes effortlessly. The ability to switch skill level mid-flight is great because you can get some altitude and switch it to a more advanced mode to push your skills, and if you get into trouble you can flip it back into SAFE mode and recover before it eats dirt. I'm doing stalls and spins to work on my recoveries this way, and if I can't get it right in time the emergency functions are there to keep it from turning into a disaster. Not to mention they take the stress out of landing, this plane likes to glide and climb so it's easy to come in a little hot and wipe out when you're trying to land but the SAFE at least helps keep you from banging it straight into the ground.
I'm having loads of fun and I'll probably be back at the airfield again tomorrow.
