Horizon Hobby announced a new technology they have named SAFE. It stands for Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope. The new technology pairs with their AS3X technology to enhance the learning experience for the new RC pilot. The sensors learn the airplanes attitude compared to the horizon and will prevent extreme or unusual attitudes of the airplane. There is also a panic switch that will automatically recover the plane to level flight anytime that the pilot gets out of control. In addition to attitude control it includes takeoff and landing assistance.
This new technology will be initially available on the Apprentice park flyer trainer and the new Blade Nano QX multirotor aircraft.
