Whether you’ve never flown RC before or you got your first
taste of flying with a multirotor drone, the revolutionary
HobbyZone®Champ S+ RTF makes it easier than ever to learn to
fly an RC airplane. That’s because it’s equipped
with Horizon Hobby’s exclusive SAFE® Plus technology
providing the same kind of self-leveling stability and GPS guidance
used in advanced drones that can cost thousands of dollars or more.
SAFE Plus drone technology can land the airplane for you, keep you from
flying too far away, and even lets you virtually "pause" the flight and
circle by itself on command. SAFE Plus also includes three flight modes
that allow you to learn at your own pace by preventing you from
over-controlling the airplane and allowing you to perform basic
aerobatic maneuvers when you’re ready.
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.
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.
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.
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.
