Champ S+ Takes the Learning Curve out of Flying RC Planes

  • $169.99
  • Save $20


Whether you’ve never flown RC before or you got your first taste of flying with a multirotor drone, the revolutionary Champ S+ RTF Takes the learning curve out of learning to fly RC Planes. The Champ S + RTF is 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.

Features include:

AutoLand

                               - No More Learning the Hard Way -
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

        - Stop and handle distractions while your plane circles safely above -
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

                     - Dont fly out of range with Virtual Fencing -
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

- Don't panic, switch to beginner mode release the controls and level out -
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

- Practice aerial maneuvers in confidence with 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.

TECHNICAL NOTES
  • The GPS unit in the Champ S+ may require 90 seconds or more to acquire a GPS satellite. The plane must be outdoors and will not function until the GPS signal is locked. Please refer to page 12 of your manual further details on disabling GPS features for indoor flight.
