Why is this RC plane excellent for beginners and experienced users alike?

Three flight modes help you learn at the pace you want. Featuring beginner, intermediate and experienced modes – whatever your skill level you will have great fun with this plane.

Beginner mode limits the roll and pitch functions of the plane, while also combining these limits with electronic self-levelling to help keep the craft airborne.

Intermediate mode increases the range of movement of the roll and pitch functions, for a larger flight envelope that still protects the pilot (you) from entering extreme situations.

Experienced mode removes the pitch and roll limits, allowing you to experience AS3X® technology-assisted flight, with smooth handling and incredible precision.

What other functions does the plane have?

The panic recovery button is functional in all flying modes. Put yourself in this scenario: you are flying your plane in the park and having a great time. Suddenly, the aircraft stalls due to a high angle of attack, and begins to plummet down to the ground. A beginner may not know how to break this stall (handy tip: release the elevator to reduce the angle of attack and break the stall), and may panic. Simply press the panic button and the plane will automatically adjust itself into stable flight, and begin exercising the holding pattern mode.

The holding pattern mode, when activated, returns the aircraft to a fixed position and it will begin to fly in a large, stable circle. A really handy feature, for either regaining your bearings or taking a second to have a quick drink before flying again.

AutoLand is a very helpful feature that actively assists during landing, allowing the plane to land with little to no pilot input. This is especially useful for new pilots as they are left to focus practice on the actual flying aspect of the hobby, instead of worrying about the much more difficult landing aspect.

Thanks to all of these great features, the Sportsman S+ is a fantastic choice for beginners and experienced fliers alike. Whether you’ve been flying for years or just starting out, you’ll have a tonne of fun with this brilliant RTF model.
