When the Conscendo was first introduced it was geared towards RC newcomers who wanted to teach themselves how to fly with a powered glider. A few years later an "Advanced" version that offered more power for soaring, sport flying and aerobatics became a favorite of many intermediate and experienced pilots alike.
Now the E-flite Conscendo Evolution 1.5m evolves the design to be the most powerful, capable and fun to fly Conscendo yet! A stronger and stiffer airframe molded from higher density EPO combines with the more powerful 3S and 4S compatible power system featuring a telemetry-capable ESC to deliver higher speeds and more aerobatic performance while offering the same smooth sport flying and soaring capabilities the Conscendo has always been known for.
With the benefits of E-flite engineering expertise, the Conscendo Evolution 1.5m powered glider is now better equipped to deliver higher speeds and even higher energy aerobatic performance yet its still as easy and fun to sport fly and soar as ever before. With a 3S LiPo battery, the factory-installed brushless power system featuring a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC, specially-tuned outrunner motor and folding prop delivers plenty of thrust for fast climbs to soaring altitude, sport flying and aerobatics. Using a 4S battery, it delivers even more speed and thrust for unlimited vertical performance without the need for modifications or upgrades. The new higher density EPO airframe has the additional strength and stiffness to handle anything an intermediate to experienced pilot will want to do with all that power, performance and full 4-channel control. Yet the Conscendo Evolution is still easy to launch, fly and land especially the BNF Basic version equipped with a Spektrum AR637TA receiver featuring exclusive AS3X and optional-use SAFE Select technologies which makes it the perfect choice for a first powered glider. Flight ready in less time than it takes to charge a battery, the Conscendo Evolution offers a wide range of pilots a unique flying experience that no other model can provide.
Construction with higher density EPO results in a stronger and stiffer airframe with a smoother finish. Combined with carbon and other composite reinforcement in the fuselage, wings and tails, the Conscendo Evolution can handle higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics yet is still lightweight to deliver excellent soaring and sport flying performance, plus long flight times up to 15-20+ minutes with a mix of power on and power off flying.
The factory-installed brushless power system features a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC plus a specially-tuned motor and folding prop that deliver an abundance of thrust with a 3S LiPo battery, or more speed and unlimited vertical performance with a 4S battery without the need for any modifications or upgrades.The Conscendo Evolution 1.5m is equipped with an ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR637TA installed in the BNF Basic version) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.
No glue is required for final assembly. You can have the Conscendo Evolution ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery. Its also easy to install and remove the two-piece wing and stabs for convenient storage and transport.
Already own a Spektrum transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly, and fly!
This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX receiver featuring AS3X (Artificial Stabilization3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you feel like youre flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.
If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.
These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.
The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. Its also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.
The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesnt require any complex programming and takes just a few seconds.
If you dont want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.
