The E-flite® Apprentice® S 15e airplane is an exceptional trainer that’s a blast to fly. 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 and long 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 15e is capable of performing a wide range of aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls and even inverted flight. If that’s not tribute enough to its versatility, there’s even a specially designed E-flite Apprentice S Float Set (sold separately) you can add that turns the Apprentice S 15e into a great floatplane. All you need to fly the Apprentice S 15e right away is a DSMX compatible transmitter like the Spektrum™ DX6. Besides ease of use, it offers virtually unlimited model memory and voice command/alerts for a level of control and safety that compliment the Apprentice S 15e perfectly.

Can this plane be flown with a 220mAh battery?
Asked by Daniel Jackson on 23rd October 2016

The recomended battery is a 3200mah 3S, however you could probably use 2200mah just with reduced flight times.

Do I need to buy a receiver too if buying the Pro Package?
Asked by Graham on 2nd November 2016

No - this plane is BNF (Bind N Fly) so already includes receiver, battery, charger. All you need is a Spektrum transmitter.

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Can you provide the shipping dimensions of this model please (in box). Thanks
Asked by Peter O on 28th July 2017
Box measures approx 50 x 105 x 20cm

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

HI, Do I need a 5 channel radio or can I use my Spectrum DX4e? Thanks
Asked by Andy Winkle on 13th September 2017

We'd recommend at least a DXe to set this up correctly with the SAFE system.  Technically it would work on a DX4, but would provide limited control.
