The HobbyZone Apprentice S 2 1.2m RTF Electric Airplane is the perfect trainer plane as it makes learning to fly easier and more fun than ever before! With its traditional trainer design, it is ready to help you get off the ground and soring through the skies in no time. Equipped with the Spektrum SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that helps to prevent overcontrol, loss of orientation and crashes so nearly everyone can learn to fly successfully. With Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced modes you can learn the basics and, when you are ready, become a flying ace. The Apprentice S 2 features Panic Recovery so if you feel uncertain of the maneuver you are trying to make you can flip a switch and be back to level flight. With the oversized wheels on this aircraft you take of from many different terrain types. Optional floats are available to fly from water.
The Apprentice S 2 is equipped with a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC that provides a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more to compatible Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters, and even approximate flight battery power remaining via LEDs on the DXS transmitter included with the RTF version. 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).
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 DXS 2.4GHz transmitter you can use with other Bind-N-Fly (BNF) Basic aircraft after you learn to fly the Apprentice S 2, to the 3S 1300mAh 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 who 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 telemetry-capable ESC, 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.

Only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because it was missing a part for the optional floats if you wanted to land and take off on water.
