The Mini Apprentice, the airplane for beginner flyers

Looking to treat your child (or yourself) to an RC plane that's easy to fly? It's the HobbyZone Mini Apprentice S, of course. The Apprentice, as it's accurately named, is perfect for trainee flyers.

But don't be fooled into thinking it's the type of plane that you'll grow out of quickly. Intermediate and experienced pilots love flying the Apprentice.

Launch, in the smallest of spaces

Take your two Apprentices, your child and plane, down to your local park. You don't need much room to launch into the sky. And you can even fly in your own backyard. How cool is that!

You don't need to worry about flying into a tree. Its strong Z-Foam construction and SAFE technology keeps you on track with modes like Panic Recovery. There are a bunch of other modes available, which you'll control through the Spektrum DXe 7Ch radio transmitter.

Powered by a 370-size brushless motor and 18A ESC

The Apprentice is a powerful little pocket rocket. The 370-size brushless motor and 18A ESC give it all the guts you need. Access the battery easily, through the large compartment. This means installing the 3S 1300mAh LiPo battery has never been quicker.
