E-flite Apprentice S 15e Bind-N-Fly Electric Airplane
I've been flying RC Helicopters for nearly 30 years and decided to try fixed wing. This thing is awesome! Stupid easy to fly and takes a beating too. If your new and looking to learn to fly RC airplanes it's simple, buy a simulator and this trainer and you'll be up and having fun in a few weeks

E-flite Apprentice S 15e Bind-N-Fly Electric Airplane
I have not owned an RC airplane for 25 years so I did some research and bought the E-flite Apprentice 15e. They only had one Apprentice left and it did not include a remote. I had to the buy the Spektrum DXe transmitter. When I took out to fly, the elevator would not go down. I was able to take off and do some flying but the elevator would not pitch the airplane down to land. I handed the transmitter to my more experienced friend at that point. He cut the power to the motor and just had the use the tail and go around in circle and it gradually descended for a landing. Good thing it was a wind free day in the morning when we flew! I took the airplane to Hobby Town and you need to reverse the AUX channel on the transmitter. Once that is done, the elevator will work and pitch the airplane down for a decent landing. I flew my plane a few days and my first landing was OK but I hit the propeller, and the motor shutdown and the plane made a loud beeping sound. I put the throttle in low and disarmed and rearmed the throttle. I flew my Apprentice four more times and I did four perfect landings in beginner mode. If other people buy this bind-N-fly and have another transmitter than the Spektrum DXe ask if you need to reverse the AUX channel or not. I am pleased with the the airplane but it should include a warning with the DXe transmitter that you should reverse the AUX channel.

E-flite Apprentice S 15e Bind-N-Fly Electric Airplane
The best plane out there for pilots wanting to move up in size from their first trainer. Very sturdy and forgiving landing gear. Excellent product.
