This is the first of the seven RC Electric planes, peripheral equipment and add-ons supplied by www.rchobbies.com.au. We intend to do seven separate in-depth reviews over the next few months - on the E-flite Apprentice 15e, Hobbyzone Champ, Mini Super Cub, Super Cub LP, Trojan T28, Cessna 182 and the new Cessna Classic 500 with a final comparison grid on all planes. Hence, we were very pleased when the Apprentice 15E arrived at our door a day or so earlier than expected.
As described in the “Upcoming Reviews”, we will be evaluating the planes from both a true beginner as well as from an expert perspective and will report on all sorts of info in areas that you are unlikely to have seen in other reviews, ie space required to fly each plane as a beginner pilot or an experienced one, take off and landing distances, type and condition of landing medium required for that plane, peculiarities of flight, advantages of Li-Po performance batteries, up market DX6i transmitter, simulators, and Swallow EQ chargers to mention but a few. We are hopeful of covering everything that anyone wanting to fly RC electric would need to know.
So let’s get started!
