The Ares Decathlon 350 RTF is the ideal airplane for learning to fly RC because it includes the technology that helps teach you how to fly, as well as the capability to make flying fun once you’ve learned. The technology is the innovative Aegis Natural Flight Progression (NFP) system with three different flying modes (Beginner, Intermediate, and Unassisted) that provide the stable assistance you need to learn to fly on your own. The capability comes from a powerful 1400KV brushless motor and 15A BL ESC combo that, when combined with the included 3S 600mAh Lipo battery, provide plenty of power and long flight times.

The NFP technology in the Decathlon is controlled from a three-position switch on the transmitter that allows you to select Beginner, Intermediate, or Unassisted Mode. Beginner Mode limits the bank angle during flight and automatically helps pilots make coordinated turns. Intermediate Mode allows greater bank angles and helps you learn how using the rudder can help with controlling the airplane. In Beginner Mode or Intermediate Mode, all you have to do if you feel you’ve lost control is let go of the sticks and the airplane quickly returns to level flight. When you are ready to fly in Unassisted Mode, the technology is still there to “rescue” you if the airplane gets into trouble. Just flip the NFP control switch to Beginner or Intermediate Mode and you’re back in level flight!

Another feature of the Aegis NFP system in the Decathlon 350 is the revolutionary “Tail-Lock” technology. This feature is available in both Beginner and Intermediate Modes and provides the benefit of automatically making coordinated flight turns look easy, even in rough air. Plus, with the NFP system on, takeoffs and landings automatically become straight, smooth and stress-free - even on rough, bumpy runways.

The Decathlon 350 has an attractive scale trim scheme and comes complete with everything needed to fly. In addition to the Decathlon 350 airframe, you get a 2.4GHz standard size 6-channel transmitter, a powerful LiPo battery, an AC charger, and even the AA batteries needed to power up the transmitter. A Ready-for-Receiver (without transmitter, receiver, battery, and charger) version that works with some other best-selling radio systems and includes the Aegis NFP control board is also available. With the RTF version, there is nothing left to buy, so you can make your first flight and look forward to years of RC fun within minutes of opening the box!

Ares RC Decathlon 350 Airplane RTF
This plane has been a big disappointment. The NFP systems does not work well. The ailerons are way to sensitive. Plane is quite heavy. The landing gear cannot hold up to any grass landings, and will rip out on you first landing. Props are very fragile. Battery bay is very tight. Limiting you to a 600 mah battery only. Spare batteries are not available from Hobby Town. Plane is a fast flier. Don't try to go slow...it will tip stall. Slow landing approaches usually end up tip stalling nose first into the ground, before you can get it to the runway. If you power in to keep the speed up, you'll rip off the gear, because it is so weak. There are way better planes out there for the same money. Avoid this one. Mine is now a parts donor.

Ares RC Decathlon 350 Airplane RTF
I am a student pilot with about five lessons on a much larger aircraft,using a buddy box with my instructor. I have yet to take off or land the plane. this Ares 350 Decathlon air craft is so much fun to fly, I had no problem taking off or landing in the intermediate mode. I would recommend this aircraft to any one just learning to fly. with a little instruction you will be flying like a seasoned pilot.
