This is the E-flite Apprentice S 15e Ready-to-Fly Airplane. The Apprentice S 15e is the most intelligent RC airplane ever offered by Horizon Hobby. At its heart is groundbreaking SAFE™ (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that makes RC flight incredibly easy, even for the least experienced user. Its combination of spatial awareness provides flight envelope protection which adds a degree of security never before available, while its smooth flight capability battles windy conditions so that all you feel is control that’s crisp and responsive. Multiple levels of flight envelope protection are provided that can be reduced or removed as your skills progress, yet the “panic” feature is always there to instantly return the model to level flight if you ever lose orientation.

Requiring just minutes to assemble, you’ll appreciate how its quiet brushless power system delivers outstanding performance with long, enjoyable flights. Plus it’s built to last from lightweight Z-Foam™ material that’s tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. After you’ve mastered the basics of flight, the Apprentice S is capable of performing a complement of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls, and even inverted flight. You can also turn the Apprentice S into a great floatplane by simply adding the specially designed E-flite Apprentice S Floats (EFLA550)—sold separately.

One word for this plane "Awesome". Flys great, glides in on landings. Oh $&%# switch is just nice to have just in case. Will save your plane to fly another day.

The glue holding the cowl/prop/motor just wont hold up. Mine barely had any glue. The lhs owner's fell off in the box. I bought extra rubber bands to hold the cowl on. Allows some flex but still holds tight. Got it stuck 50ft up in a tree and could only get 30 ft up, so I spent 20 minutes beating it with a 20ft pole since small branches had wrapped around the prop. Broke 1 servo horn and 1 clevis, that's it. This thing is tough. Fun to fly, and can adjust the throws and use the dual rate for landing. Check the battery before you charge it. My pack was at 3.8, 1.1, 3.6 out of the box. Yikes. Overall, I'm glad I bought this even with these issues.
