E-Flite Apprentice S and SAFE Technology – The Ideal Partnership
In a previous blog post, we gave an overview of SAFE Technology in general and what its benefits are. In this post, we want to talk about how this technology is applied in the E-Flite Apprentice S 15e. The Apprentice S is an outstanding trainer plane and one of the primary reasons for its effectiveness is the use of SAFE Technology. As you may recall, SAFE allows for the creation of sensor-assisted flight envelopes (hence the abbrevated name). In the Apprentice S, one of the options you have is selecting a beginner's envelope. When you fly with this option selected, SAFE Technology will limit the Apprentice's pitch and bank angles; avoiding any extreme or unusual attitudes during flight. This is great for pilots who are just starting out in RC flight. The SAFE Technology prevents the Apprentice 15e from veering off its trajectory, giving you a smooth flying experience time and time again. Furthermore, in this beginner's mode, SAFE Technology gives Apprentice S pilots take-off and landing assistance; making both procedures easier to manage.   We previously discussed how SAFE Technology comes with several flight modes and this is evident in the Apprentice S 15e. Once you have got a handle of the plane in the beginner's envelope, you have the option of switching to an intermediate mode. In this instance, the effect of the SAFE technology is lowered. You will still be flying in a sensor-assisted flight envelope, but this envelope will be expanded. The Apprentice will be able to engage in larger pitches and banks; giving you more maneuverability. Additionally, this RC plane features an "Experienced" mode, whereby the flight envelope protection is completely removed. This gives you the greatest amount of maneuverability in flight.   As you can see, SAFE Technology in the E-Flite Apprentice S 15e is an exciting feature. It not only gives you security when flying, but the flexibility to adjust the settings as your skills progress.
