Learn to fly with the HobbyZone AeroScout S
The AeroScout S is a brand-new release from HobbyZone that is an ideal beginner plane which takes ease of assembly to a whole new level. The only thing you need to put this model plane together is one screw for the front nose wheel and three thumbscrews for the wing – no glue or tape is required – meaning you can get out to the field and flying sooner. Not only does the AeroScout make assembly a breeze but learning to fly a model plane is easier than ever thanks to the exclusive SAFE technology. With progressive flight modes, you can advance with this plane as your skills improve and develop.

This was an absolute game-changer and revolutionized the way we look at the world of trainer aircrafts.
June 26, 2013 1Recently on the Modelflight Blog, we have been talking about SAFE Technology and how it applies to the E-Flite Apprentice S. Today, we want to talk about SAFE's application in the Blade Nano QX Quadcopter. Similar to the Apprentice, the SAFE Technology in the Nano QX makes it a great choice for beginners.

The Apprentice S is an outstanding trainer plane and one of the primary reasons for its effectiveness is the use of SAFE Technology.
