If you're completely new to flying RC (Radio Controlled) aircraft, we recommend learning to fly with one of our purpose-built trainer aircraft such as the E-flite® Habu STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE) 70mm EDF (EFL01500). It's equipped with exclusive and innovative SAFE® technology that makes it possible for almost anyone to learn to fly successfully!
