Product Information

Learn To Fly with the E-Flite Apprentice

E-Flite Apprentice S

One of the most intelligent RTF RC planes available, the Apprentice S 15e from E-Flite is a groundbreaking model. At its core is the innovative Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope (SAFE) technology, which makes flying incredibly easy, even for the least experienced pilot. The spatial awareness in this model aircraft gives you flight envelope protection that adds a level of security never before available.

Combined with its smooth flight capability, this E-Flite remote control plane can handle windy conditions so that control is always crisp and responsive. Various levels of flight envelope protection are provided with the Apprentice, so you can reduce, and remove, this security measure as your skills progress. Rest assured, there is a "panic" function available to instantly return the model r/c plane to level flight if you ever lose orientation.

Lightweight Z-Foam material

The Apprentice S has a high-wing design and can be assembled in minutes. Its quiet brushless power system delivers outstanding performance. The flights you experience with this model plane will be long and enjoyable.

Because it is constructed from lightweight Z-Foam material, the Apprentice can handle everyday flying punishment without losing its shape.

Once you have mastered the flying basics, this remote control plane can perform a range of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls and even inverted flight.

With the optional Apprentice S floats (sold separately under the product code EFLA550), you can turn this model into a great floatplane. Beginners' RC planes do not come better than the E-Flite Apprentice S 15e. Order yours now.
