Based on the Carbon Cub by Cub Crafters, an upgraded and thoroughly modern iteration of the classic Super Cub, and equipped with Horizon's SAFE Plus GPS-enabled technology, this scale reproduction makes it easier to learn to fly in less time than ever before. Features including AutoLand, Holding Pattern and Virtual Fence make it easy for almost anyone to fly successfully from their very first flight, while additional features including oversized tundra tires and optional flaps and floats offer the capability and versatility to fly from almost any surface, anywhere.

The Carbon Cub S+ is available as a Ready-to-Fly for $259.99, or Bind-N-Fly Basic for $219.99.

The other airplane to grace our shelves this week is the UMX Aero-Commander. The E-flite UMX Aero Commander brings the twin-engine icon to life with bountiful brushless power, aerobatic capabilities and exclusive AS3X technology for an overall flight experience that feels rock-solid enough to double your ultra-micro fun. The lightweight airframe boasts a carbon-fiber reinforced wing for added durability and performance. Careful attention to the scale outline highlights a detail list that includes panel lines and a vivid three-color trim scheme. The powerful twin-motor power system features a pair of brushless outrunners and three-blade props to deliver that exciting multi-engine sound. Independent linear servos provide the accuracy and performance to enjoy sport aerobatics such as point rolls and big loops with precision while AS3X technology delivers the ultimate in control, even if it's a bit windy.

HobbyZone Champ S+ is In Stock!

The Champ was always a great airplane. Horizon has revamped and aggrandized that airplane into the Champ S+ beginner airplane, and they added a few features along the way!

AutoLand
When activated, the advanced AutoLand function puts the Champ S+ on a stabilized approach to autonomously land near the takeoff point. When flying in rougher conditions, you can provide some directional guidance and let the system do the rest to execute a safe landing.

Holding Pattern
Push a button, and the Champ S+ will automatically fly to a point near its takeoff location and circle at an altitude of approximately 65 feet. Once the command is cancelled, you have full control of the aircraft and can continue to fly.

Virtual Fence
It’s easy to accidentally let an RC airplane get too far away, but with Virtual Fence worry no more because it creates a virtual boundary the airplane won’t fly past. When the Champ S+ encounters the Virtual Fence, it automatically turns around inside the boundary and wags the wings letting you know you have control again.

Panic Recovery
If you ever lose control of the Champ S+, just switch to beginner mode and release the control sticks. SAFE® Plus technology will return the aircraft to level flight.

Flight Envelope Protection
Pitch and roll limits keep the Champ S+ from entering into extreme flight attitudes and conditions.

AS3X®
Works automatically to stabilize the Champ S+ with the sophistication of 3-axis gyros to help battle the influence of turbulence on windy days.

We have the Ready-to-Fly version on the shelf for $169.99! Come pick one up today!

HobbyZone Sportsman S+ Now In Stock

Horizon has long been innovating with technology to make radio controlled flight more approachable for everyone. The latest in these innovations is the HobbyZone Sportsman S+ Ready-to-Fly Airplane. It combines the three-axis gyroscopes and accelerometers from AS3X with the envelope-limiting system of SAFE and adds in a GPS component for the most advanced computer-assisted flight in all of radio control hobbies.

Landing has always been one of the biggest concerns for new pilots, but not anymore. Designed to be as intuitive as possible, the HobbyZone Sportsman S+ comes loaded with SAFE+ technology which is equipped with advanced attitude awareness and a GPS system so pilots can leave their hesitancy on the runway, even if it’s their first time flying. Like the beautiful full-scale Glasair Sportsman, the Sportsman S+ is a natural in the sky with the freedom of four-channel control and a powerful brushless motor that comes pre-installed. If a pilot is skittish about the landing, no problem. In the right conditions, the Sportsman S+ will perform the landing with no help from the pilot.

AutoLand — When activated, AutoLand returns the Sportsman S+ safely to the ground with little to no pilot input. When flying in rougher conditions, you can provide some directional guidance and let the system do the rest to execute a safe landing.

Holding Pattern — Push a button, and the Sportsman S+ will automatically fly to a point near its take-off location and circle at an altitude of approximately 120 feet. Once the command is cancelled, you have full control of the aircraft and can continue to fly.

Virtual Fence — You can choose between a circular setting with 360-degree fence or a rectangular setting with a fence that prevents the Sportsman S+ from flying behind you. Both fences will prevent the aircraft from flying too far away. When the Sportsman S+ encounters the Virtual Fence boundary, the control system will automatically activate Holding Pattern and return the aircraft to near its take-off location and circle until you cancel the command.

The HobbyZone Sportsman S+ RTF is $349.99 for a one-box, everything-you-need purchase. We currently have two of them on the shelf, so stop by soon and start flying!
